I use a brompton as a shopping cart all the time. However there are moments when I much prefer the way a Dahon rolls, e.g. I'm picked up from my flat by a friend and they park their car 10 meters away and over the road. With the Dahon I just walk out the flat and wheel it by the saddle. With the Brompton I have to partially extend the saddle or stem and the easy wheels roll awkwardly over the uneven pavement and road surface, so I'm tempted to just carry it instead but it's heavy.

Often the Dahon is more convenient around stations too. However, with a rack the Brompton shopping cart mode works brilliantly for me in shops.
