    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.

    congratulations on that new purchase !!


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

    also we have a folder group here in LA and we meet at big rides like the ciclavia coming in april15th contact/pm me if your interested to meet other folder owners I mainly ride my vintage moulton and if not my bromptons we have 6 of them in our family, the other members of the small wheel group are also mainly brompton riders

    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.
