Nitto Brompton rack with a Bike Friday?

Hi all,
I'm getting a used Bike Friday New World Tourist and was thinking of putting the Nitto rack for Bromptons on it. (Wheeling around the BFs have proven to be tricky...)

Are the measurements wrong for that?

Worse than Measurements, there is Not, the required welded on head tube mount*..

Just get the Bike Friday front Pannier Rack .. thats what I Do [ BF P Llama]

I made my 2 Ortlieb bags into a pair with webbing connecting them.. so they come off as One.

Now, If You were Ordering a new Bike Friday Tikit, on their Spec menu they build your bike from

there is a line item to add * the mounting block to the head tube as the bike Is Being Built , that then can
take the plastic Bracket made by Brompton so you can Use their Bags ..

then maybe get the rare, outside Japan, Nitto thing you asked about.

I own a Brompton Too ..

NWT is a travel bike , not exactly made to fold several times a Day.. Tikit Is.

Do you mean the Nitto rear rack for a Brompton..? I have fitted an old steel rack from a 20 inch wheel Dahon onto a BF NWT...I simply needed to add an inch or so to the support arms to join to the the seatstays ..
If you are not talking about a rear rack..I apologise..

If you haven't bought the Nitto rack already I would say there are many other cheaper racks on the market that will fit onto a BF NWT quite easily..
In the UK you can buy plenty of racks with adjustable stays that will fit a 700c ,26 inch ,24 inch or 20 inch wheel ..and I am sure that must be the same in the US..
Although quite expensive the folding BF NWT pannier rack is excellent..

I'm confused...are you looking for a rear rack with a wheel so you can roll it or just a rear rack?
