“Nifty Folder”

published 16/10/2008

ProPower assistance on hills

ConsRelatively heavy, you still have to pedal

My announcement to the family at large that I was buying a bicycle was greeted with a mixture of awe, disbelief and unsuppressed laughter. You see I had not actually seriously been on a bicycle for over 40 years! As the mirth subsided the information that this particular bike was a folding model...

ProAlmost "full sized bike" rideability. Less likely ...

ConsSmall wheels go down holes further = harder ride. ...

I first wrote this opinion within a few days of buying my Brompton L3, and nearly five years and several thousand miles later, I stand by everything I said then. It's a fine and useful machine as long as you don't think it's got any off-road capabilities. Half a mile in a ploughed field convinced...

ProVery easy to fold and good to ride

“brompton l3 bicycle”

published 06/12/2005

Prothe ability to fold up

Consnot able to go offroad due to no suspension

I really like the brompton l3 bicycle and how it has the capability to fold up into a smaller bicycle that is able to be carried around to wherever you need, and does not need to be locked up. The ride is very smooth along flat roads which do not have any obstacles, but once these begin to appear...
