He prefers it over the TSR 30 because of the lower gears and the straight bars, although he hasn't ridden a Moulton yet.
Could someone please advise me on 2 points? First I've read that there seem to be some issues to do with the reliability of the gears on the TSR bikes. Is this a problem and does it apply to the TSR 27?
Secondly, where is a good place to buy which could give him advice on sizing, make any adjustments for height and reach if necessary and let him try it out?
He's 6 foot 2 and should with a bit of luck be accommodated by their standard frame size which apparently can take someone with an inside leg measurement of 27 to 35 inches.
Given the price of used Pashley Moultons and his relative lack of cycling knowledge, I think that on balance he's probably right to buy new.
