    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...

    Clever Cycles in Portland Oregon is also a Brompton Dealer ,
    as is Calhoun's in Minneapolis MN.

    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.

    Im finding a KLICKfix Bracket for Bromptons that is topped by a tube.

    thereby KF bar bag and Ortlieb Bar bags can be fitted to the Brompton front bag clip,

    as well as anything else that is made to fit a round tube.

    seen here :http://picasaweb.google.com/ksuzuki....74207078479602

    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
    FWIW,
    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..
