The distinctive U-shape of the M Type's handlebars has been used on the Brompton since the outset: it gives a fairly upright ride with excellent control. The Brompton M3L-X 2013 Folding Bike is the all-rounder in the range and remains the most popular Brompton, as much at home in the city as on a country lane, and with plenty of room for luggage at the front. Taking all the great features of the M3L, the M3L-X adds titanium forks and back end along with a sealed bearing front hub and an aluminium seatpost for a lighter ride.
