Bike refurb – part 1

060504
Today started with a very good ride into work on my folding bike (Blue Birdy) and ended with me picking up my Moulton from Dan at Pashley’s in Stratford with part one of the refurbishment complete. As it happens the bike was in pretty good shape. A few parts need to be ordered (new back sprocket, brake pads, foldable tyre and tubes) and the bike will go back in a couple of weeks time to have these and a new chain fitted as well.

While at Pashley’s I saw one of these (see picture). The new-ish TSR (see www.tsr.uk.com) – 30 gears – made my 9 gears look modest by comparison.

I also contacted Shaun Moulton at Alex Moulton Cycles and ordered a larger luggage bag. Shaun is also going to have two replacement wheels to hand in case of emergency! Thanks Shaun.
