Hi all, been trying to pick up a folding bike within my price range and have a seller on gumtree willing to sell a 2009 brompton (M3L) for about £300. My reservations are two fold:
1) Firstly, he is quite young and got the bike as a present - selling it off to pay for a "cool" bike. I don't think he understands Bromptons model numbers and as such, can not identify it. HE says its red, so I presume it can only be a Brompton S2 or a M3L?
2)He states its very new and made in 2009, but I dont think he knows that for sure. What are the identifying markers for a 2009 model? As far as I can tell, its the seat only.
Is there anything else as a first time folding bike buyer that I should check?
Thank you all out there and wish me good luck.
