    I think a lot depends upon your and your passengers weight - at 225lbs I would dare think of carrying a passenger...

    That is a special seat made for the Brompton (not sure if it is made BY Brompton). Can not remember the name. Not long ago I stumbeled into a site thad listed them for sale, can not remember where. I am sure somebody in this forum is soon going to give you all the info you need.

    Clever Cycles, a Brompton dealer, in Portland Oregon may have access to those Child carrying seats .

    but note: it's for carrying a child , not an adult..
    Small seat goes on a curved brace , whose ends are clamped on the frame ,
    ahead of the main tube hinge, and the seat post tube.
