Brompton Borough Basket bag

The Brompton Borough basket bag is a large, open top container, ideal for popping down to the shops for supplies - it has webbing loops on the outside for attaching even more stuff

It's an ideal first bag for your Brompton front carrier system

It js the Brompton equivalent of a wicker basket - with an open top

But it has a carry strap which can also be used to shut the top and stop things jumping out while you are riding!

This new version (now called the Borough) was introduced in late 2019 for the 2020 range is designed specifically for fixing to the front carrier block

  • Size: Large
  • Colour: Dark Grey

Note: The front carrier block is sold separately here.

Its shape is maintained by a simple bracing frame which folds flat for storage.

Capacity: 23 litres (approximately)

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.

Brompton Q part code: QBORBSK-L-DG

Versatile & Great Value

When going on Brompton shopping trips I used to use a C bag. But the zipped top got in the way of carrying tall groceries and also limited stowing flexibility. Stuff needed wresting in. Frustrating! So I took a look at the Borough bag. Seemed ideal and the price was half that of the C bag. Ordered through Brilliant Bikes (who were brilliant by the way - it was a day or so delayed in shipping because of waiting for new stock so they used expedited delivery and attached a hand written message on the invoice - lovely touch guys!).

The loading on the front baggage fixing is limited to 10kg but I’ve exceeded this once or twice with a 5 litre load of milk, plus a lot of tins, jars etc. You can perch lighter items so that they protrude above the brim and they don’t fall off. With bag fully loaded the Brommie maintains its wonderful poise and balance. Just beware when removing the bag at the end of the trip as the loaded weight takes you by surprise.

The top of the bag isn’t sealed against the weather of course, though straps and locking clips close it off reasonably well when not fully loaded. But for about £10 a Brompton rainproof cover can be bought if this is an issue.

Could the bag be used for commuting etc? Absolutely! It has fewer frills and less pockets but if you don’t need them you can save a lot of money compared with a C bag. You could even use it for long day trips if you wished, packing short term essentials, drink, food and a waterproof. Nice!

So far it’s been great, a quality item, though at 24 litres obviously you can’t do a full weekly shop with it.
