Dimpa (IKEA storage bag) a *no go* w/ my Flamingo

Contrary to other poster's exoeriences w/ Bromptons, the Dimpa see-through zip bag does *not* work w/a Flamingo that has a Brompton extended seat post and rear rack. It is about 20% TOO SMALL (65X 22 X 65)

I'd be surprised if even the newer version of the Grace Gallant or even the Brompton other than the most stripped down version fits.

Fits my S6L just fine (s bar, full fenders, & 6 speeds).

the shanzhai 1000 has folded dimensions 35% larger than that of a folded brompton. adding bits to it will only make it larger.

protip: you actually don't own a brompton.

Ummmm, I could just buy one now. I'm selling my Xootr Swift, THEN deciding my next move. A Brommie might be it,... But I can afford to make the purchase if I chose to now. I just don't want so many bikes around the house. I'm trimming the herd,...
