Brompton luggage block
The Brompton front carrier block / mounting block is one of our best selling and most useful Brompton accessories (in fact - we think it should be standard on all Bromptons)
The Brompton front carrier block attaches to the pre-made fittings on the head tube at the front of your Brompton and then allows you to quickly and easily attach and detach Brompton luggage (bags)
It's made of heavy duty plastic, black in colour and comes with fill fitting instructions
The carrier block is essential if you are using Brompton luggage - carrying bags on the front of the Brompton is easy and minimises any effect on bike handling
Carrying a bag mounted to the front of the bike takes less rider energy than carrying your stuff in a rucksack.
The carrier block comes as a kit that you need to install - as shown in our lead picture - it's pretty easy to do.
Tools required for installation of the Brompton Front Carrier Block Assembly
4mm allen key / hex wrench
Cross head screwdriver
2.5mm allen key / small flat head screwdriver - to remove blanking grub screws if present.
This is the block as described below by Brompton:
Quote: Brompton front luggage options are based on the Brompton 'Front Carrier System'. Luggage is attached via a frame that latches securely onto a tapered block. It takes a second to attach or release your bag and the load is attached directly to the main frame - with little effect on steering.
