    The nut on the rear wheel is a pressure point that has the potential to damage the suitcase wall e.g. when other cases are stacked on it. I use about an inch of high density foam to surround it.

    Great place, my first time on that island, though I did see Castlebay from the deck on a prior Uist-Oban ferry voyage.
    I'm sure I will return some other year and extend the journey up through the...

    My 6 speed BWR has the 44 tooth crankset:
    As I no longer live where I can commute by bike, I rarely feel the need for more speed.
    A 39 tooth setup would be a good fit for touring.

    Standard procedure with any packing would be to unscrew the derailleur and put spacers held on with the wheel skewers.

    Absolutely no issues with the duffel in backpack mode with Brompton inside:
    The straps are long enough with plenty of adjustment.

    The seat and tires form the longest dimension.
    There is room to pad the front hinge and 1/2" under/over the bike.
    Lots of length left in the bag.

    Yep that's the one - also other sites with more colors e.g. with -20% offer The North Face Base Camp Duffel Bag - 1525 - 9460cu in | Backcountry.com

    A Brompton fits into a TNL XL Base Camp Duffel :-)

    The fit is snug for width - but the bike fits with the standard fold i.e. without removing anything.
    The bag has compression straps on the sides...
  14. XL size is a winner

    As the Brompton fitted into the XXL so easily, I went back and tried the XL.
    It the fit is snugger - but the bike still fits and the ends of the bag are a non-issue.
    The bag has compression straps...

    I took a chance and ordered the XXL from REI ( as it is 20% off and annual dividend time ).

    The XL is 19" x 32" ; the XXL 19.5" x 35.5".
    If the cylinder is flattened to an oval 24" x 12", it should just fit the circumference.
    But it's probably too close to call without trying it - so I...
  18. BF/Brompton into TNF XL or XXL duffel - will it fit ?

    Has anyone had success packing a Brompton or Bike Friday into one of the large XL or more likely the XXL The North Face Duffels ?

    These things are very robust and great for air travel ; a regular...

    I have them on my S6X. They are uncut.
    I may have moved the brake levers in a few mm; but I can't say for sure.
    Other bar styles may need the grip rubber cut back.

    Diamond black was also my choice for the somewhat heavier Llama frame I just built up.
