Well there you go Vic, You wanted to see what the O bag looked like on a bike..
appears since the O bag is used on their Straight bar bike, in some shots,
its not as tall as the Touring bag I have , which is a foot tall . minus handle..

I'm pleased to see at long last that there is a photo of the elusive B-Pod (hardshell transport case) in the brochure! wonder just when they will have them available (been delayed for 12 months now).

Interesting uses of the words "built", "assemble", "manufactured" and "make" on page 7. Even granting Brompton's copy writer liberal semantic license, they are claiming they've now brought the titanium fork and rear triangle manufacture in-house. That's something I hadn't read elsewhere.

Besides a couple new colors and the B-pod, nothing new really. I guess you can't make big additions every year.=)

P.S. Since they do not offer purple anymore, my bike just got lots of collectors value to it hehe.

All Bromptons look the same to me. I guess I need to own one to appreciate the differences.

there is that rack of powder coated frames , in various colors, build follows order, from menu.

your taste for odd color combos can be satisfied..

unless, like most bikes, you just ride off,on what is on the dealers floor.

like to see the Titanium tube manufacturing part of the building,
to have the materials to weld together..

I think that part still may be a contract filled elsewhere.
