The "Sightseer" consist of B132B Soft Transport Bag for Brompton & B206B Garment Bag. We shall be reviewing and giving our thoughts on the bags for transporting not just any Brompton, but a living LEGEND.
So lets see if this "Sightseer" is up to the job eh?
|B132B Soft Transport Bag for Brompton|
|B206B Garment Bag|
|Take the journey|
The materials used in the construction feel tough, hard wearing and able to withstand the riggers of travelling with a legend.
Nice big snap straps to keep the package in shape and contents safe from movement.

Good placement for "dragging" the package around stations/airports.
|Pull Strap & snap|
|Long shoulder straps|
|Protective inner lining, hard bottom & more straps|
|Large robust wheels for rolling|
As you can see BBB fits right in. Was a little fiddly at first getting BBB in there but its not like I've ever put BBB in a bag like this before. With practice it will get easier & faster. If you got extra bits on your Brompton then you may have slight issues but this is designed with the standard Brompton in mind.
Even with my 2litre Carradice Zipped Roll Bag still attached with the B206B Garment Bag with my cycle clothing its a good tight fit. If anything I would give a little more protection for things that are protruding like (the in my case clip-less) pedals & the hinge clamps or just completely remove them and placed in a plastic bag inside just to make sure they don't get broken from being accidentally dropped etc. For my peace of mind, I'm VERY protective of my BBB.

No Taxi, No Buses, No hassle, simples.
So now I hear you ask, how much?
Well its $159 (excluding taxes & shipping) so just over £100 at the current exchange rates at time of posting. Remember you may have to pay import tax if your getting this from overseas, so be aware of that unless you can find a local dealer. I'm currently unaware of any UK dealers.
