Hello NoelGView attachment 383959
Yes, I've got one. Bought new about 20 years ago and fitted a Heinzmann electric motor to the front wheel. Sold them for a while (the bike with a motor) but I was ahead of the waave. Very few people bought them. But the motor was fantastic and the bike well made. Eventually the battery gave up, I got rid of the motor and re-fitted the orginal sturmy archer wheel with internal brake. Then got relegated to a plastic sheet cover outside in the garden for years. Got it out TODAY and here it is. Needs new inner tube on back, a polish up on the chrome, and a new back brake cable which which is seized. In fact everything was a bit seized. But a liberal dose of releasing oil worked wonders. Amazingly close to being rideable again. I love the simple, logical form of the frame. It folds down a bit better than shown in the photo of the grey one because the seat and handlebar posts slide into the frame with a quick release clamp.
Hello Gonzales,I have one of these too. It’s in perfectly usable condition and myself and missus can get this and her Brompton into the the boot to seek out cycle friendly routes for easy weekend rides.
So I was just getting this Cresswell ready for Spring and found the rear tyre a bit perished. The original tyres are marked as 20 x 1.75. They are somewhat balloon designs, that was probably a mistake, I should have got normal size. Where can I get slightly more standard tyres and what size should I order? A lot of websites seem to be quoting different units/measures - if I Google 1 x 1.75 folding bike tyres I get products “for 20” wheels”.
In fact the rim radius from hub centre is 20 cm and inner rims are 1.75 cm apart.
