Brompton M3L - Useful ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Bought my M3L from Evans in early 2015 and never regretted it. It enables me to ride a bike most days as I can take it in my car (I have a long commute) and leave the car a few miles from work and do those last miles by bike. It also means I can use public transport rather than taking the car to visit relatives in far flung parts of the UK, joining up the first few miles and last few miles by bike.
