Carrying luggage on the front of Dahon

Hi guys,

I'm looking at ways to carry items on the front of my Dahon Mu Uno, something like this:
Halfords | Biologic Tour Bag

The only thing is, I can't seem to find a site/shop in the UK that stocks something that will make use of the 3 screw holes on the front of the Dahon, as shown in this link: Tern Luggage Truss | Evans Cycles
(The kit in this link is available in the UK, although out of stock... and it's for a Tern... so I'm not sure if fully compatible with my Dahon).

Basically, I'm looking to be able to carry a laptop, iPad, work clothes, packed lunch etc in some kind of bag that will easily clip onto the front of my folder...

Does anybody have any ideas or solutions?

Many thanks,

The Tern Luggage Truss will fit on a Dahon Mu. You might consider the Kanga rack. See:
Dahon Bags and Luggage
Almost any laptop bag, backpack, etc. can be strapped to the Kanga rack.

Thanks for clarifying that the Tern truss will fit.
I've come across the Kanga rack, but would really like something that looks a bit more integrated, rather than a rack that holds a rucksack, if that makes sense? I'll keep having a think.

cheers
