    I think you could call this a "carrying device" ;)

    Cool. I always wondered how comfortable those were to ride?

    Actually quite comfortable, steering is quicker than on a bike with full size wheels but you get used to that quickly, ride is smoothed out because there is a rear suspension.

    Very cool!

    I've been wanting to work out some sort of case or trunk to store my Montague Swissbike X50 in my truck (did take it w/ me on the family vacation one year) --- unfortunately I've messed up the folding by piling on one too many accessories --- my Axa Victory lock sits just a bit too high and interferes with folding.

    No longer an edc but those were definitely my transportation for a while

    I later changed to easy wheels and added a front bag.

    Nowadays I commute by car so my brompton has been gathering dust for a while and I'm definitely in worse shape...
    Thinking about turning it electric for short trips but I wouldn't be satisfied with front wheel motor and installing a motor at the rear means losing the brompton wide range gear (which I'm fine with, should've went for 6 speed though) and also widening the rear triangle to accommodate a standard gear cassette, possibly modifying it for the gear arm as well...

    I wonder if brompton's own e bike is already out

    Can't find a pic, will definitely upload one soon!

    Slightly OT but, Dave, there has been a recall for the crank on many bromptons a few months back.
    They report a higher than expected failure rate of 1 in 5000 I think... so definitely not bad at all.
    I've had mine replaced at my local brompton distributer.

    If it bothers you too, you can check the serial number on their site to verify if you have the "bad" crank and have it replaced for free.
