What kind of brompton rear rack is this?

Hi there, first time poster but long time listener!

I've been looking at brompton modifications for the past few months, and came across this rear rack on Steve Parry's brompton today. Anyone know if this is a one-off thing or can be purchased?




Image is from https://secure.flickr.com/photos/mar...n/photostream/

On a totally different note, I'm currently looking for a brompton anywhere on the west coast USA as a project bike, so if anyone has a brompton that has some wear/chain issues/etc. let's talk.

Likely custom Steve Parry made, he sells his stuff, if you are nearby, in UK..

You can probably talk to him at the next BWC , reported to be at Goodwood , this time.

I saw a gallery of pictures taken at the 2013 BWC. I think it was the first time the event was held at a "real" raceway and not surprisingly the character of the race seemed to have changed. There were more people wearing kit than in the past... looks like it's getting too serious.

**UPDATE
I found this vid... It presents a different slant on the event than the photo gallery I saw.

Yep, I noticed on the (rather outdated) foldsoc.co.uk site it's a rack he sells. Don't own a brompton yet, but will look into buying one or building something similar.

the rear rack is not really needed .. mudgurd roller & 2 EZ wheels , suffice.



[Maybe if the back pair of wheels were wider apart,
folded trolley functionally won't be so ready to fall over..
front ones are about max width to not kick as you pedal]

I am afraid I do not agree- at least for us. We do not use the bikes for commuting, we use them on trips, and often carrying all our luggage in places where you just can not wheel a bike.

Trying to haul a heavily loaded B in "trolley position" trough long carpeted corridors is not fun, and by now I am rEALLY determined to find a solution. If it has to be a full rack with the four wheels then that is what I`ll do.

Anybody tryed this thing?: https://www.milianparts.com/en/products/plablo/

Closer but not close. Must be somebody out there that is using it, I`d like to know.

... But ... are they also killing time on this site? only time will tell .. post may get bumped down,

to way--back archives by then

Re, the 1st post, I dont see a complicated project there .. brazing a little bit of tubing .



Ez wheels hold 2 of the 3 mounts together, bottom strut held with same bolt as the mudguard struts ..

even replace the top one . on the L mudguard ..


cross brace at the rear, can even be same as the one in my Bike Friday front rack

2_6mm thread bosses in the ends of 3/8" tube..

the top support plate on the mudguard made part of that cross brace..

speaking of mudguards, in the other direction there's the plume 'slap bracelet' mudguard. not the same purpose, but I'd rock it if I wanted an ultralight setup - https://plumemudguard.com
