What's the best mirror for Brompton?

I got my S6L Brompton today. I'd like to put a mirror on it. Would a Mirrycle mirror be okay or would it interfere with the fold? I've seen at least one blog post suggesting a Zefal mirror would be better.

Is there any consensus on what mirror is best for use on a Brompton?

Thanks in advance.

A mirror mounted on your helmet is another option ..well...if you wear a helmet that is!

I prefer the Zefal spin. Kinda small sized but it folds in, which helps when you fold/unfold the brommie.

I have a S6L, the Mirrycle mirror (MIR-1000) works fine. No issues.

I put on the Mirrycle mirror with no problems. It folds nicely out of the way.
