Sporting a bag on a 2-speed Brompton folding bicycle!

As an avid Brompton folding bicycle commuter, I can always use some extra luggage carrying capacity. This is where the Brompton Sport bag comes in handy. With the ability to fold up extremely small, the Sport Brompton has provided me more possibilities than ever. Once, doubted over how useful and great it rides, now I wouldn’t know how to live without it.

Now that the Brompton folding bicycle is my daily commuter, I rely on it more than ever. But due to having sixteen inch wheels, the rear rack is much smaller than a regular bicycle rack. The rear rack is great for carrying bulky objects or boxes. But not very useful for carrying small objects or clothes. That’s when you need something such as the Brompton Sport Bag.

After extensive research, I bought the Brompton Sport Bag from NyceWheels in New York City. NyceWheels has the largest selection of folding bicycles and accessories in the NorthEast, with exceptional knowledge and customer service. Whenever I buy anything from NyceWheels I can know that the products are genuine, and backed up by an outstanding warranty.

The Brompton Sport bag keeps items dry and safe

The Brompton Sport Bag has tons of items while still not interfering with the front steering. Instead of clipping onto the handlebars, it snaps into a luggage block that’s mounted onto the frame. This allows you to still have great control of the Brompton by eliminating the bag from swaying side to side. Inside the sport bag is an aluminum frame that also prevents the bag from sagging.

You can pack all your clothes, items and even a small laptop. And also in order to keep all your valuable belongings dry, they made the Brompton sport bag waterproof with a removable rain flap. You will also notice that the Brompton folding bicycle has no water bottle cage attachment on the frame.

Honestly, I find water bottle cages ugly and unnecessary on a sixteen inch folding bicycle, due to the fact that you will most likely only go a few miles each way on average during a commute. Not to worry though, seeing that on the back of the Brompton sport bag they included two pockets that just happen to accommodate two water bottles. I find this location much more convenient for grabbing a water bottle or two, instead of having to reach downwards, requiring you to take your eyes off the road.

The Brompton Sport bag has a handy shoulder strap

Having a bag on the front of your bicycle is extremely handy. There’s times when you don’t need to carry that much, or need to remove when not using. This is when the handy carry handle is very useful, or the included shoulder strap that takes the strain of your arm. The Brompton Sport bag is made of very durable, high quality material. I never have to worry about the Brompton sport bag tearing open. And I definitely don’t have to stress over my belongings staying dry during monstrous downpours.

The Brompton Sport bag does cost a lot for the Brompton folding bicycle. But when you take a closer look you’ll understand why. The Brompton Sport Bag is a high quality bag that will withstand many years of abuse. Would you rather pay more for a product that’s made to last? Or would you rather keep replacing it every six months including the personal items that got ruined with it?
