Bromptons and most bike trailers fine?
Can most standard trailers fit a Brompton without some special adaptor? Thanks. I'm looking in Amazon at Instep and Allen models... pretty common ones. Thanks.
I fit mine to my brompton with no issues. Save yourself more money and buy a used trailer off craigslist.
Thanks but I'm not in the US so my choices are far more limited. =/

I can use either of my 2 wheel trailers by just putting either ones tow fitting under the left axle nut.
But I prefer the Chariot hitch on my Carry Freedom City, because it's elastomer on the trailer is a Ball.
so the rear wheel fold / kickstand functions as usual, rotating around it's pivot, and the ball within it's socket.
Added benefit ,, the CF-C, with its sling bag in place will take the folded up bike laid on top of it, *
then, trailer itself will fold flat, wheels within it's frame , once the bag is unclipped.
* then say run with it to a seat in a car on the other end of the train station platform,
or tow, carefully, up stairs .
the Burly Travoy as it fits to the seatpost should work well .. as well .
Paddle shaped elastomer and the inverted F style forged hitch of Burly's 2 wheel trailer
with a pin through both to pivot R/L. works fine. elastomer flexes when you lean into a corner..
just rear wheel stays open and un folded..

as to the ones you listed Allen, and Instep , I have no experience , with those on a Brompton.
you may have to fabricate something to bolt down, under that left axle nut and then have a separate hole drilled
In, say a piece of steel 1/8" thick , to then attach the piece, onto which that the tow bar attaches ..
folding the bike can only happen after removing the trailer ..
so think about making, or having made, a combined piece,
that not only fits the trailer hitch , but also a prop/Kickstand ..
Damn... I have no tools at my disposal, nor the skills to do it. I hope it's not necessary. I'll update this thread later in case anyone's interested.
