Seems you are selling your Brompton: https://www.ebay-kleinanzeigen.de/s-...37325-217-3394
Curious what your experiences were with your configuration. Did it not live up to expectations? I really like the mounting of the Edelux on your bike.

If you have big feet don't take the rear rack. If what's secured on the rack is only is a bit wider than the width of the rack itself you will constantly bang your heels into it. Main advantage of the rack is the better stability folded.
For touring I'd use some bikepacking seat bag.

The OP is committing the biggest sin possible, he's SELLING HIS BROMPTON!!

I only hope the thread resurrector never finds out what is happening to mine.
