The new F748 Coltrane backpack clips onto the front of a Brompton folding bike, promising to “fit and function as perfectly as it does its more usual bike, namely, on your back”.

Turn this specific edition of Freitag’s prototypical, recycled Freitag backpack 90 degrees and it can be used on any Brompton folding bike.

Made of used truck tarp, the 19 litre capacity rectangular shaped bag (measuring 300 x 150 x 450mm) comes with Brompton’s aluminium front carrier frame that claims to be easily removable thanks to its Velcro straps—the bag can be used as a backpack with or without this aluminium frame.

Backpack straps attach magnetically to the back of the bag for one-handed docking and removal, while an extra long key strap has been included so it’s possible to unlock your door when the backpack is still fixed to the bike.

There’s a double-zippered, padded main compartment, as well as a zippered outer pocket for quicker access to essentials.

So let me understand this?  It fits to a Brompton only if a fugly great alu frame is lugged around with it?  Thats hardly well integrated is it?

I wonder why they dont just use the front mounting block like Brompton bags too.
