US source for Brompton O-bag?
My LBS has a Brompton O-Bag, but it's quite pricey and I need to get the bag to CETMA in OR anyways so I thought about buying it online in the US to save $$ and get it shipped direct to CETMA.
To the Bromptonauts - what are the preferred e online US dealers for your bike's accessories?
Thanks in advance for any suggestions...
Foldabikes in California keeps a huge inventory of Brompton bikes and accessories.

The O bag is expensive down here too.. By passing from German source, to UK exclusive Distributorship
and then to a 3rd currency exchange by importing country
can't help to make it cheaper.

Thanks! I use my Tikit a lot so I'd be willing to pay a premium for a refined, easy to use product that is waterproof and durable.

Of note KLICKfix Vario Rack which uses a bracket which you may fit to the BF steerer stem and carry what waterproof Rucksck you may own
or a River-portage pack or Dry-bag..

anyhow .. will be interesting to see from someone who bought one,
whether it is different from the rear rack mounted
Ortlieb Downtown bag which has specs of being:
36/14.2'' x 36cm/14.2'' x 14cm/5.5'' = 18L/1098cuin.
leveling the rack mount could end up with something that you could hang
from the top rail of a porteur front rack
Brompton's front rack for M and P bar bikes is 40cm x 30cm,
(the base of my Brompton 09 Touring bag is 20cm deep)
Todd at Clever says O bag 'per the site: 20 litres capacity.
50cm x 30cm x 15 cm high' [must be laying down,high = depth..]
standard frame 40 x 30, so hare wider , bit shallower..
