OVERVIEW

We want the M2 to be as versatile as possible, and this means knowing which accessories work with the M2 to help you to carry your essentials, light your way, or make sure you’re safer on the road.

Of all the accessories we’ve tried with the M2, these are the ones that we think work best. We don’t stock them all ourselves, so where possible we’ve given key dimensions so that you can use your own accessories as there are a lot out there to choose from!

CARRADICE ORIGINALS CAMPER LONGFLAP – £150.45 (incl. Bagman support)

Carradice is a British brand that makes a wide variety of handmade bike bags of different shapes and sizes. The “Originals Camper Longflap Saddlebag” paired with Bagman Quick Release Saddlebag Support – Expedition works well with the M2 and can accommodate the fold too. All Carradice bags are hand-made in Lancashire.

Note: Not stocked by FLIT, advice only. Please purchase directly. If you would like to add it to a Cycle to Work order then please contact [email protected].

CARRADICE SUPER C SQR TOUR – £95

Another option from CARRADICE is the Super C SQR Tour. Although a saddle bag, it has plenty of room for a laptop and a change of clothes. It also comes with a quick-release bracket that clamps to your seatpost, allowing you to remove and reattach the saddlebag in a few seconds. All Carradice bags are hand-made in Lancashire.

Sizing note: The M2 has a thick seatpost (34.9mm) so you will need the large seatpost bands to attach the quick-release bracket.

Knog oi classic Bell – £16.99

Bike bells can be a bit tricky on a folding bike, particularly if they stick out too far and clash during folding. Australian designers Knog spotted that a bell which fits flatter on the handlebar both looks better and is more practical. The Knog Oi Classic bell is often copied, but we still think that the original looks and sounds the best.

Sizing note: There are two locations to install the Knog Oi bell; the small size will fit the part of the handlebar next to the grip (22.2mm), and the large size will fit the thicker part of the handlebar closer to the front light. The location of the large bell will give you more space to attach other accessories to the handlebar, but the location of the small bell is easier to reach for riders with smaller hands. The bell in the photos below is the small size.

Knog PlugGER front Light – £36.99

On the FLIT M2 we’ve integrated a front light into the handlebars but it is primarily designed to be very visible to others so that you can be safer on the road. If you want to make sure that you can see every crack and tree root on a dark cycleway then we recommend that you add a second front light that can be angled towards the ground.

We really like the Knog Plugger as it does the job well, doesn’t affect the fold, and fits the M2’s styling. Made of overmoulded soft touch TPU, it emits a powerful 350 lumens and is packed with features including a low battery indicator, cut-outs in the front light body for improved side visibility, and USB rechargeability.

Sizing note: we recommend fitting the Plugger light on the left-hand side of the handlebar between the brake lever and the front light to give the best clearance during folding and a good angle to illuminate the path in front of you.

IntraLock® Bike Mount – £29.99

We think the Mous bike mounting system is fantastic. It’s very secure and easy to use. And if you haven’t seen Mous’ drop test videos online then they’re worth checking out. Not many phone cases can survive being thrown out of a hot air balloon.

Designed for use with Mous’s IntraLock® cases. The included spacers give you options to mount at different points.

Sizing note: replacing the thumbscrew with a shorter bolt will give you even more angles to install the mount without affecting the fold.

Note: Not stocked by FLIT, advice only. Please purchase directly. If you would like to add it to a Cycle to Work order then please contact [email protected].

FOLDYLOCK FOREVER – £89.99

We have been working with Foldylock for five years to provide locks that match our design philosophy: lightweight, compact, and practical. The Foldylock Forever not only looks great, it is also their most secure lock to date, rated Sold Secure Gold, which means that it will be accepted as adequate protection by all ebike insurance policies.

Sizing note: The Foldylock Forever has a 90cm shackle circumference which will wrap around your M2 and a lampost or bike rack. As with all bike locks, we strongly recommend putting it through the M2’s triangle (between the top tube, down tube, and seat tube) to make things as hard as possible for potential thieves. All Foldylocks come with a case that can be bolted onto the FLIT M2’s front fork where its low centre of gravity will not affect your ride.

FOLDYLOCK COMPACT – £67.99

The Foldylock Compact is the Forever’s younger sibling. Lighter and more compact, it is a more practical choice if you just need to lock your bike up for 15 minutes to nip into the shops. Rated Sold Secure Silver, it will not be accepted by most insurance policies, and we would always recommend more protection, but for those looking to keep things lights and who don’t plan to leave their M2 outside unattended for extended periods it may be the more practical choice.

Sizing note: The Foldylock Compact has an 85cm shackle circumference which will wrap around your M2 and a lampost or bike rack, albeit with 5cm (2 inches) less space than the Forever. As with all bike locks, we strongly recommend putting it through the M2’s triangle (between the top tube, down tube, and seat tube) to make things as hard as possible for potential thieves. All Foldylocks come with a case that can be bolted onto the FLIT M2’s front fork where its low centre of gravity will not affect your ride.

Fully loaded handlebars

The M2 handle bars have 4 spots on which you can attach accessories without compromising the fold. We regularly ride our demo M2 with a Knog Oi bell, Knog Plugger light and a Mous phone holder all at the same time. The diameter of the handlebars inside the brake levers is slightly larger so we’ve had to fit a Knog bell Oi Classic LARGE as pictured below.

FAQs

Can I buy accessories that I find myself with my Cycle to Work order?
We can provide third-party accessories with cycle to work vouchers, but we will have to pass on a 10% commission fee that we are charged by the cycle to work operators. We do not make a profit on these items and are merely passing on the cost.
