One disadvantage of Flamingo saddle

Never noticed this when I bought this Brompton-like folder...

Unlike Brompton or at least those with Brooks saddles, the Dr. Air saddle that came with my London 7NX lacks the standard (?) two things underneath. So I can't attach bags easily with just two loops and buckles or velcro.

Were the designers asleep at the meetings?

you are funny ....

looks to me that you are ( were) on the hunt for a super bargain, cause you didnt want to pay the Brompton price ( with an optional extra priced Brooks saddle on it )

and now nitpicking every detail on that " bargain" bike ...

get two zipties, fasten them onto the rails of your saddle, voila, you now have a loop to hold the brompton saddlebag .... well you have a bargain copy of the original, right ? But should work ...

again .... not dissing you ... just sayin
