Whoops! It's Cone, not "clone".

I thought this was a "clone" when I read the title of the post. And then I noticed the link is for Moulton, and I knew by then that they are not going to be making any "clones" or "knock offs" of their own bikes, that I realized my misinterpretation. Shows how much attention I pay now a days.

Anyway, it looks like a beautiful bike but we all know that anything Moulton, is not going to be affordable for us mere mortals.

From a quick glance I don't see how this is different from a TSR.

Looks to me like the tie-in is the color scheme. And not much more.
Made to mimic the old Mini as its posed with on their own website.
(Im not saying it isnt attractive mind you)

Per the Moulton website’s “star system” of affordability, it looks to be among their most affordable offerings....same star rating as the Grand Union model. Id sooner have the Cone vs. Grand Union...but Id be delighted with either.

Found out today its going to be under 2k so a nice sst frame with 9 speeds but has mount for front derrailleur on already for future upgrading, i wanted an sst but this opens up a better option for a lot cheaper.

Very cool bikes...I love the frames...the tsr with an Alfine 8 speed looks great but I thought the brakes could be a little better quality

They are ok...guess they will do ..after seeing a tsr in person ....I was amazed at the complexity of the frame...price is justified I think
