Brompton with drop bars

I managed to add drop ends to my Brompton without increasing the folded size, see

Hi 101, I have read thru your site and to me it is very impressive.
I can't imagine how much effort you have put onto your Brompton.
And I bet you enjoy it a lot. :-)

Thanks. Yes, you have to enjoy both the process and the result! The Brompton is so nicely engineered, and it is very motivating to add additional funcionality.

Yes, this is a nice solution, and well implemented. The four brakes are elegant!
Since I am tall, I need a longer reach.

Those handlebar solutions show that you can realize some options if you use a wide bar (560 or 580 mm), and the horn, bar ends, or drop ends fit around the front wheel when folded.
