We’re all in favour of cycling to work, even if it’s only for part of the journey. Here’s our pick of the current folding-bike crop…
Montague Paratrooper £745
A full-size mountain bike with suspension, front disc brakes and military-chic aesthetics.
Brompton M3L £700
Brompton is the folding-bike king, and this is its most popular model – a good, reliable all-rounder.
Dahon Jack D24 £500
Work in the Himalayas? A lightweight aluminium frame, 26″ tyres and 24 gears should get you through the most arduous commute.
Kansi 1twenty £500
One of the slickest-looking folders we’ve ever seen – there’s something of the ’80s Skyway BMX about it. If you’re feeling flush, the £850 9twenty features multiple gears.
Mezzo d9 £645
If you need serious luggage space and versatility, the Mezzo d9’s rear-mounted rack, light aluminium frame and 9-speed gearing should suffice.
