    Brompton maximum weight limit when folded?

    I went to a really busy restaurant today. There was a table open with no chairs. Since I had my Brompton folded & carried in with me I thought about keeping it folded and using it as a chair.

    Wouldn't you know it, a chair became available right when I got to the table so I didn't need to use the Brompton that way, but I'm curious, does it have a weight limit when it is folded?

    Don't do it!

    Recently I have read a post and seen pictures of bent "ears" where the transit wheels attach. Can't remember where the post was sorry.

    Regards

    Ive made a patch*, to prevent that spread as the wheel support,
    J bend tube bends further.
    then restored a weakened point, I bent them back a bit.. should be fine now..

    * strip of steel, holes in the ends, then, the ends folded down,
    so the distance between the wheels cannot spread .
