The Brompton M3L has been around for a few years, so there are a number of comparative reviews available. The most recent reviews come from Men's Journal, The Wall Street Journal and Britain's Daily Mail, all of which include the Brompton folding bike in a group test. Older reviews are also available. Since the bike hasn't changed substantially over the years, these reviews are still applicable.
