I would take the two speed over the 3 speed for the reasons stated by Bargainguy. Also, and the Brompton experts can correct me if I am wrong, there were two subtle changes made in between those years. The crank/bottom bracket changed from ISO standard to JIS. The older ISO bottom brackets are harder to find. Also the brake levers changed to a much nicer and sleeker design.

But my needs may not be your needs. I know my wife would want the 3 speed over the two and she could care or less about bottom bracket standards and brake levers.

Good luck with what ever you decide.
