    You should already have bought a bag support frame.. from Brompton.
    For the snap together connection with the frame block , you know..

    I have a messenger bag that came with a waist belt , and the shoulder strap.

    wrapping that waist belt around the tubes of the bag support frame ,
    and clipping the buckle shut is all I did to combine mine..
    that and a stiffener of coroplast from the last years political lawn signs.
    stuffed in the bag.

    But really you can use their Touring Bag as a messenger or shoulder bag,
    off the bike. its bigger..
    with most of their bags there is a frame pocket on the back,
    opening just big enough for the handle on top.
    velcro straps close the bottom to keep the frame in side the pocket.
