Wanted to Buy: Brompton M6L for touring

Posted on
  • I am coming to UK from Australia and a friend recommended this forum for all things bike.

    I would like to purchase a used Brompton for touring London to Aberytsworth Wales and any advice anyone has for routes etc. At the moment we are looking to take around 10 days.

    I'd like features on the bike to include rack, extended post, 6 gears and firm suspension. That said i'm open to alternatives.

    Any assistance greatly appreciated



  • Do you want to take it on after or just use it for the trip?

  • Hey Joey !

  • I’d like to take it home with me ideally however if I’m being too picky I’d be open to other arrangements :-)

  • G’day mate!

  • Okay cool!

    I was going to offer a loan of one if it was just for the trip!

  • Thank you so much for the offer. Part of me thinks if i want to buy new might be the better option, but i've left too late to build one myself. In this sense borrowing could be great. I'll see how the week goes then perhaps get in touch? What bike do you have out of interest?

  • I work for sjs cycles, we have 4 demos plus electric demos!

    We also keep a tonne in stock and regularly modify / custom build them

  • Second SJS cycles - fantastic guys to deal with. Another option is Compton cycles in London - they're well placed to build custom spec with a very quick turnaround

  • How custom?

    My wife’s m6l is now up for sale...

    Lagoon blue
    Black edition
    Jtek front hub
    Kuosac headset
    Ergon gp1
    Standard length post
    Swiss stop Brake pads
    Marathon racer tyres - rear is new

    She’s having an electric...

  • Good question - Because my memory is sieve-like I can't remember exactly what I specced a few years ago - I think I was after an m2l and could only find s bikes at the time so they built up what I needed plus extra changes (seat, grips etc), that day.

    I may have just got lucky but I was impressed! SJS is now my touring bits and pieces place of choice.

    How much for your wife's m6l??

  • Cool!

    When I say custom I’m talking paint, aftermarket parts, rohloff/Alfine and discs!

    £1000, Lfgss price £950, free Uk postage

  • Thanks mate, i'll have a think about your wifes - sounds pretty much what im after.

    Regarding the loan option how would that work? Would it be possible to take two for the first week (friend from Germany wants to join me) happy to pay. If you want to shoot me an email joey_nova@hotmail.com to discuss more that would be great.


  • I’ll email you tomorrow From work!

  • Hey did you send me anything yet?


  • I did! 2 minutes ago.. I used the wrong email... sorry!
