I'm currently considering three Brompton options: (1) M6L or (2) M6R-Plus or (3) M3L (to a lesser degree). Can someone tell me the difference between the three.
What I'm looking for:
(1) something fairly light weight and small. What do the Brompton weigh, I can't find the specs. The lighter the better.
(2) general commuter bike, but I tend to do some recreational riding as well. I currently live in Ohio, and it is moderately hilly here. I need to be able to carry it around the office and onto buses and even planes.
(3) DURABLE. I want something that isn't cheap and that will last. How long will a brompton last? Do the joints go bad?
What is service and parts like for brompton for consumers in america?
The guys at SFbikes.com have been very helpful with suggestions, but I thought I would ask a general audience. I'm unable to test out this bike before I buy, because I don't live near a dealer.
I'm 6 ft, 175lb male. I'm been looking at Brompton, but I'm also open for suggestions about other companies.
Also, can someone tell the disadvantages about Brompton.... or anything else I should know.
Thanks for all the help
