    I'd say astoundingly convoluted writing. In the UTube video they only use the name of Brompton within a list of companies and in the writing quoted above they put the Brompton name into the context...

    This is about the standard incandescent bulb for rear bicycle lamps. US bike shops were never good about stocking them even before LEDs - a hardware store might be a possibility. Otherwise, I...

    At least in the US, the Brompton makes no impression on the security people. They were far more interested in what was taken out of my pockets that the Brompton. After all, it is not that different...

    How thick did you get it? Any particular brand? Thanks.

    P.S. NYCE Wheels include the Polaris in their YouTube video, put it in-between the B-Bag and B&W, and advise B&W for challenging travel.

    I seem to be lost at words... If it is so straightforward, why don't you go ahead and construct one. Heck, if you run twice over the budget, you will be still ahead. Good luck there!
