  • Hi
    I feel myself as a source of your inspiration for packing system change. I was via comment on previously shared packing system video. I posted video link with front dahon rack for backpack. Were you inspired by this or not? 🙂

  • Ladia – I don’t think we saw that video. Do you have a link?

  • The tip was in the comment where I wrote that my favourite solution is twodays mountainering backpack on handlebars and front rack on dahon bikes and cant imagine how to do it on brompton without brake bosses.
    Link was this http://www.youtube.com/user/veloramacz#p/u/21/NkgO9VfH3tU

    what do y’all do when its raining? use a pack liner…doesn’t seem like a pack cover would work too well.

  • […] Rigging the backpack to the back of the saddle has turned out to be a brilliant way to carry gear. Because of the small wheels, the weight of the backpack is low to the ground, keeping the center of gravity low. The backpacks hold a fair amount of stuff, in a streamlined fashion, without getting in the way of our pedal strokes or posture on the saddle. Which all adds up to us hardly noticing that there’s that much weight on the back (except when I load my backpack with food!). Plus, the ability to break everything down into just three pieces (bike, front bag, backpack) has been invaluable for the transit connections we’ve made. […]

    Ingenius! Wish I could do this but at 240 lbs I’m already at the load limit for a Brompton. With even minimal touring gear I’d be well past its limits. Have you weighed your bags?

    Hello Russ, I’m from Brazil. Here, we don’t have a Brompton, but I have a local folding bike. I’m using the folding bike to go studying in another city, using a bus as main transportation. You don’t know how much you helped me with my backpack. Thank you very much.
