If you've been wanting to easily put Brompton bags on your Tern or Dahon folding bike, now you can!
This clever little block adapts the Tern/Dahon cargo mount (two bolt configuration only) directly to the Brompton carriage block, no modifications required. From there you can just buy any bag made for Bromptons and you're good to go!
Along with extensive real-world testing, Finite Element Analysis (FEA) has been performed on this block
to ensure structural integrity even at twice the Brompton weight limit of 10kg (22 lb). Load'er up! For loaded tourers that want the ultimate strength possible, the steel or aluminum versions will actually exceed the strength of the Brompton carriage block!
The following items are required for assembly. The original Brompton bolts were not able to be utilized without compromising the strength of the adapter, but the replacement bolts are designed to be easily accessible at your nearest hardware store.
Required items (not included
- 2 x 12mm countersunk M6 bolts (example here
- 2 x M5 nuts (nylon inserts like these
are preferred to prevent loosening after many miles)
- 2 x 25mm M5 bolts (example here
