It was a design based on Brompton's Folding Basket but instead the material of the basket was red with white spots. It looked pretty cool and ofcourse I thought of something for the Legend. Sometimes I have big oversized loads and wanted to make sure I could transport it safely and this looked pretty good for those rare occasions.
I made a passing comment about would love one but in BumbleB's famous black & yellow stripes.
Not long after I made this comment I was contacted by Valeria Lopes who made the custom folding basket and asked if she could find something suitable if I would be interested in one.
It took me all of 1 billionth of a second to say ofcourse we would be interested so long that the design was right.
A few days later I got a fb mail with a photo attached.
I nearly fell over.....
I thought DAMN its perfect for BBB and was a pretty good early birthday present for my little folding buddy.
So we waited..........while I waited I had to purchase "Brompton Bag Frame For C,T,Folding Basket" which you should be able to get at your local Brompton stockist.
I swear time dragged on, I was tracking the package online and swear the courier was leaving my package till the last possible moment. I had to actually stop tracking as it seemed that took forever to get here to the HiVE.
I came home to the HiVE after work and there was a small package waiting for me, I don't know why but I expected it to be big like the framed basket. *duh*
When I opened up the package I was even more surprised and delighted what I found. So I wasted no time in installing the frame and brace.
|24 litres capacity|
Also there are little side pockets as well which can be very handy as well.
So I just had to pop out to get some shopping done to see how it felt to use in person. :D
I'm very happy with my bag as it compliments BBB's legendary style ;)
