A Commuter Bike You Can Take with You

The Want: A sturdy, safe vehicle that can be stored at work and gets you there in one piece.

The Get: Brompton's 25-pound M3LA (as shown, $1,350 at bicyclehabitat.com) has a steel frame and rear suspension that buffers some of the bumpiness that folding bikes are known for. Its high handlebars deliver an upright, responsive ride, and the frame folds and locks into a package a little larger than the wheels in 15 seconds. With the chain in the middle, you won't get grease on your suit.
