The Brompton Leather Carrying Handle by RAW

As a long time lurker I thought I would finally put up a post as I think my latest accessory for my Brompton is worth sharing, its a hand made in the UK carry handle by RAW from www.bikefrenzy.co.uk.

My brompton is tricked out with ti forks and rear triangle with lots of bits from my mtb.

The Raw handle I bought a few months ago is just awesome and really complements the looks and function of my bike, it also has the Brooks saddle and grips so this leather accessory really fits in.

After using the handle daily for a few months its is standing up really well to the abuse I have thrown at it, its made of very thick saddle leather so hasn't stretched or gone out of shape.

A bit of a design fault on the Brompton is the folding pedal, it scratches the frame which really p1sses me off, however with the Raw handle fitted it stops that which is an added bonus.

Any way enough witering heres a pic with the handle in toe.:

That looks really nice and is about the same price as the leather handle I have on my Brompton. It's made by Brooks, has copper rivets with copper rails and also functions as a saddle.

Or to put a less snarky spin on it (not that snarkiness isn't appreciated from time to time), does the handle make the bike easier to carry than by using the saddle as a handle? I have the standard Brompton saddle with the finger grips underneath which works well enough, but I wonder if this is an improvement.
