Brompton Pannier Rack

image

The Brompton pannier solutions are very good, but what if you want to carry normal panniers or share luggage with other bikes? This pannier rack is the answer – it fits to the same front luggage block as the Brompton panniers and can hold two conventional front or rear panniers.

It is made from one loop of 10mm stainless steel for strength. The handle lets you remove the rack and both panniers in one go.

This is how it looks loaded up on the bike:

    1. No, my pannier rack is only for normal panniers, not Brompton bags – but of course you can unclip it and use a Brompton bag with its own frame.

  1. How does it feel to ride having so much weight at the front? I have a Travoy trailer attached to my Brompton so knows how it feels to drag a heavy load from the rear.

  2. Hi, I’ve got two questions on this when attached to an S type: 1) Does the bike still fold ok with the rack attached? 2) How does it ride with just 1 pannier attached? I’m used to riding with one on the back of a ‘normal’ bike for comparison. Thanks

    1. Yes, it still folds, though as with the Brompton bag it’s easier if it is unclipped before folding, and it depends how stuffed the bag is. With one pannier, it is very similar to having just one pannier on the back – A slight lean when you’re wheeling the bike, unnoticeable when riding.

    1. Depends what you put in the panniers 😉 I would recommend using front panniers, but the weight limit is quite conservative.

    1. I haven’t tried with those panniers, but it works with most rear panniers as long as they don’t extend too far above the hooks.

  3. Hi, I like your front rack solution but it has a real weight constraint….10KG. Have you thought about an extension
    to the rear rack(upwards) so that the height of normal panniers can be accommodated? I am looking for a solution to having rear panniers for touring.

    1. I have been experimenting with a rear rack design, yes – I just haven’t had the time to get it properly in to production yet!

      1. My .02p :

        Xooter Cross Rack is a seatpost mounted pannier rack for 1 rear pannier ..
        Crossways.. it removes the bag frame from the clamp around the seat post with overlapping tubes with a pin through a hole crossways through both..

        I have a Carradice SQR bag mount on my Brompton seatpost (Lg Bands)
        They seem to just tack weld together 1/4″ rod for their bag support,
        a bit more substantial fillet may allow a bit more weight capacity to make a crossways Pannier single bag carrier using that mount to the Post.
        the 1/4″ just has to slip into the SQR slots the rest can be tubing.. IMO

        I use the extended post, It , with the SQR on it’s top, still goes down enough
        to meet the stop disc securing the fold..

  4. Hi, Could you tell me the weight of the front pannier rack please as I guess this has to be factored into the 10KG weight restriction…….thanks Steve

  5. Is it possible to just purchase without the Brompton carrier frame assembly. I have a spare carrier frame and would like to just fit the pannier frame myself. If so how much would it cost for uk post.

    1. I’ve never done one in all black, that would mean Powdercoating the stainless steel and aluminium parts which would make it hard to assemble them.

  6. Hi I saw your YouTube demo of a rear pannier rack. Is this on production yet and if so how hard is it to fit?. If not, what’s the lead time on your front pannier solution?
    Thanks in advance.

    1. I’m still working on the rear rack, it needs some more development. The front racks are usually available within a week, I try to keep them in stock.

  7. This works very well for me so far. I have Ortlieb panniers adjusted back far enough on the rack that the receiver part of the frame is not too far behind the middle of the bags. Because this puts the center of gravity only slightly in front of the frame, this is probably easier on the luggage carrier block than a „T Bag“ at the same weight with the load farther forward.
