    Looks like sports persuit have rockbros stuff if you want to buy new: https://www.sportpursuit.com/sales/roswh­eel-jul22

    Yeah, careful packing is never easy. Putting your sleeping mat to form some structure can help, or finding a tapered dry bag? Rockbros is another brand that does cheap and cheerful, but serviceable. often on Amazon. Or Decathlons riverside/btwin?

    Bodge job for the rear Dynamo light as the H&H rack doesn’t have proper mounts sadly. Risk of extreme destruction? Or just likely to crack the guards sooner? Feels pretty solid being just near the rack mounting point…

    Zip ties in case it needs to move, before you ask.

    Tried the method on #4 here? https://bikepacking.com/gear/bikepacking­-hacks/

    Else PlanetX Podsacks or Alpkit Koala might do the trick? Been some time since I’ve bought so not sure on what they cost anymore.

    Else many LBS’s may well stock the apidura/ortlieb/altura sets, seen them crop up. Admirably apidura/ortlieb aren’t budget, but may be available in stores.

    Ok thanks. Have it the wrong side of the mudguard but not sure I can be bothered with the faff of taking it off to move it 1mm inboard…

    As you can see, it does. But does require a bit bending of stays, it’s not a simple fit as it would be on a standard bromton rear frame spacing. Took about an hour to fit, and some gentle persuasion to get the stays playing nicely

    Everything bar frame, stem and cranks is non-standard!

    Looking at that photo again though, I think I’ve mounted the rack wrong :( it’s supposed to go behind the brake bridge not in front as I’ve put it isn’t it @sbbohr?

    Update on H&H rack, not the easiest fitting (my fault for having a non standard Brompton) but it certainly makes it roll so much better. Still a little wobbly and may yet get one of the wheel extender things to help stability but a quick test across tiled supermarket floor it’s a vast improvement.

    I’ve got a cycle2charge top cap usb thingy that wasn’t very much many years ago. One thing to look out for is most newer tech is fussy with charging, and wants a stable current, tricky with stop/start/variable cycling speeds. Best bet is usually to charge a power bank (not fussy) to then charge your electrics

    I’ve got none of these! came on a Brompton I bought. Really weird to ride… interesting concept though
