Check out some of our top electric bike models for road riding and commuting.

Brompton M3R

The Brompton M3R is one of our prime examples of a road bike that is well-suited to a commuter's daily routine. First and foremost, this is one of our most popular folding bikes. It folds up quickly to a size of just 23 x 22.2 x 10.6 inches, so you can easily stash it under your desk at work or on the train. The Brompton M3R also has a high-quality luggage rack and front bag mount, making it easy to bring all the essentials with you to and from work. This model features two lighting options, so cyclists get their choice of a lightweight battery light set or a hub-dynamo generator lighting system. Either one greatly enhances visibility on the road to keep you safe.
