      REVIEW: Brompton carry handles

      REVIEW: Brompton carry handles

      Brompton carry handles are by many Brompton fans seen as a non-necessary item since the Brompton does have a built-in handle on the seat for holding it when folded.

      However, in our opinion, that is not always true. The best example is a comment from our client, Mikael from Sweden and I quote: "Really want that strap. The electric Brompton has some extra weight." 
      Or another lady from Belgium: "I need to carry my Brompton 3 stories high, and I have a back problem."

      The Weight
      The problem is that the Brompton folding bike weights not light, depending on the model and configuration, but ranges from 9 – 12½ kg (20 – 28lbs).

      The seat
      However, the Brompton seat isn't as comfortable as many custom seats. Besides, the seat from Brompton is not convenient to hold when the bike is unfolded. Another problem when holding the Brompton it's transport is uncomfortable. With the pedals or frame, it is easy to reach your shins when holding it. 

      When you're holding it by the seat handle, the Brompton is heavy at the end. The front appears to lean forward, allowing the hitting of objects or those around you when riding public transportation, something that is not healthy. 

      Carry handle
      The Brompton carry handle addresses all of those problems. The handle lets you hold your bike from the center of the frame. The middle carrying of the Brompton makes the bike more balanced and less likely to touch you or someone else.
      If you are a smaller individual or are expected to hold it for more extended periods, the Brompton can be very heavy. And carrying it up steps can be tough, particularly if you are in a city like Brussels with its metro stations. 

      So let's have a look at two different carry handles:

      Brompton Leather Carry Handle made of Genuine Cowhide Leather
      It is produced from saddle leather and is available in either natural, black, or brown. The Brompton carry handle makes carrying your bicycle much more relaxed and comfortable. 

      Brompton leather carry handle The handle is made out of thick leather to provide enough strength to carry the bicycle safely. Straps are attached to another piece of leather that keeps them in the right position while providing additional protection to the frame. Where the handle is lined with leather on places where shaps would touch the frame, thanks to this, you don't need to worry about your Brompton frame getting scratched. The price is €51,99, and you can buy it here .

      This carry handle has the advantage that you can carry it in two ways, in your hand or on your shoulder.

      This accessory is perfect if you need your hands free to take other things. - in addition to allowing a balanced and comfortable lifting thanks to its central handle - it is matched with a shoulder strap held by two snap-hooks.It is made out of polyester, and thanks to the velcro straps very easy to attach to your bike. This Brompton carry handle & shoulder strap is the best price-quality product we have.The price is €29,99 and you can buy it here

      Review | Brompton mount for iPhone or Smartphone | Bromptonic

      Challenge

      Last summer, I decided to get an iPhone mount for my Brompton.

      The iPhone needed to be easily and quickly removable. It should look good and should not block the folding position.

      Solution 

      After a couple of hours reviewing the web, I found the one I needed. I am going to spare you my search results and review of other products, simply because this one is the only one that is specifically made for the Brompton.

      The most important feature and benefit is that you can nicely fit it in the middle of your steering wheel. So perfectly symmetrical. All other mounts for smartphones you have to attach left or right of the center.

      It fits all Brompton handlebars, the S, M, H, and the P. 

      The mount has three parts: 

      • A plastic phone holder that you screw to the Bromton mount
      • A plastic mount to attach to your phone case.
      • A 3M high-quality sticker to attach the mount to your phone case.
      • A Brompton mount that you attach and screw to the middle of the handlebar.

      WARNING: Don't attach the plastic mount directly to your phone. The 3M sticker is difficult to remove. Just buy a plastic case for your phone that is not to thin (like silicon).

      Once you have attached the mount to your Brompton, you just adjust the phone screen angle only once during installation. 

      No need to re-adjust during the folding or unfolding process.

      TIP: I did not screw the mount hard, so I can still adjust the angle if I want.

      The phone mount is not to thick and still fits nicely in my pocket. However, if you don't use your phone on your bike on a daily base, you just remove the case with the mount case on it.

      I encountered only one negative point; my iPhone XR is just a bit to large to nicely fit between the H handlebar. I fixed this by adjusting the angle of the phone.

      REVIEW | Brompton front carrier frame for backpack | Bromptonic

      Since we have our bikes, we have wanted to attach our Tumi backpack to our Brompton.

      We have the original block from Brompton attached to our bikes. I own an original large shopping bag from Brompton.
      It was frustrating to own an expensive, good quality backpack from Tumi and not being able to attach it.

      So, I started a search on the web and found several solutions but or too expensive.
