Handmade Brompton Bike Bag

I have been looking at these handmade Brompton bags for quite a while now.  The particular Ebay seller (dieselheaters4u) seems to be based in Turkey and sells lots of parts for diesel heaters, but as well these hand made Brompton bags that seem to get delivered from Turkey for no charge. I really am not quite sure what is going on there, but I scoured through the feedback which seems very good. Some feedback said that it was better than the Brompton B Bag. If this is true I’ll be very happy.

I want a bag for my Brompton so I can take it on a plane and go and visit some friends in Spain, my Mum and Dad in England and some friends in the United States too. As well as this I’d love to take my Brompton on tour with me and my band next spring in England, I did this this year (actually when I bought my Brompton) but it got loaded in with the bands gear in a trailer behind a motorhome and it did suffer. Mainly a few scratches and nasty scuff on the saddle, nothing life threatening but still not nice.

I’m just going to order the bag now, as is customary in my household, I buy everyone’s Christmas presents including my own, so I will let you know how I get on. It’s the 8th December today, so hopefully it will arive before Christmas.

    I ordered this 9 days ago and it’s not here yet, but I am guessing the Christmas post isn’t helping the matter.

    My bag actually came 3 days ago, but I can’t review it yet as it is a Christmas present (to me) from my wife. Watch this space.

    Hi…just to add to this, we’ve just bought 2 bags on ebay from ‘gillybean2372’ (100% feedback) for our bikes to be stored on our narrowboat, and put in the back of the car, and they arrived next day from ordering them. They’re really well made and fit perfectly round the bikes, would highly recommend. They’re £45 including P+P so cheaper than the Turkish ones.

      Thanks Juliette, I’ve got mine now which is very well made, but I will take a look at your ones too. £45 does seem an excellent price. BTW congratulations on being the first person to leave a comment on Folding Bike Guide 🙂

    It’s sad that we got the bags but not the real deal here in Istanbul, Turkey. I saw Brompton a couple weeks ago and looking for ways to get my hands on one ever since. No one seems to be willing to ship it to here. I’ve found your blog during my Brompton hunt. Thanks for the useful ebay info and I hope you enjoy the bag.
