Anyone know if you could fit a Brompton folding bike in the frunk? I tried looking for frunk dimensions but only came up with volume.
That would be a perfect duo for my driving/riding commute.
The frunk seems a bit on the small side in the Model 3. It may be wide enough (barely) and deep enough. Most say it is about the size of a medium duffle or carry on bag. Your bike might fit a bit better in the hidden recessed area in the trunk instead.
Brompton's are small, but they can be a bit awkward to pack due to their square shape when folded. I suspect neither the frunk nor the recessed "well" in the trunk will be big enough. Like ReD mentioned, they're probably wide and deep enough - it's the length that will be tight. I wish we had actual specs on stuff like this so we wouldn't have to speculate. I have a Brompton, too, that I'd like to be able to throw in my Model 3 on occasion.
There have been no dimensions published, but it was stated at the delivery event and in articles since that the frunk space was designed to fit a legal carryon suitcase. That is about 22x14x9 (depending on airline) - if that gives you a guideline until actual dimensions are released.
Man, as a pharmacist the first thing that entered my mind at the thread title was "Brompton cocktail," which ain't a bicycle. ;-)
Thanks for the replies, I had a little trouble finding this thread
Posted by sbeggs in "Rode in a Model 3 today" thread:
4. Frunk measurements, width/length/greatest height? 35" wide x 17" front to back, 8" deep in front, around 10-11" toward steering wheel, depending on rubber seal depth. Two pop out grocery bag clips.
Is there a necessity to put the bike in the Frunk? Or is that simply just to know in general if it will fit?
I have a folding bike and I think that space in the back, where it is recessed will fit my bike perfectly
No real necessity, but if it does fit the frunk would be dedicated to the bike, freeing up the trunk for groceries, etc.
I'll take a look at the recess in the trunk. I believe the Brompton is the smallest folding bike when folded.
We tried it at the Brompton dealer and sadly the Brompton fits neither in the frunk or in the rear trunk recess. we were able to easily put 2 Bromptons in the trunk with the lid off the trunk basement with plenty of room for other luggage.
I've had a look and measured up one of my Bromptons a few weeks ago as the space looks ideal. I think the Brompton seat os an issue - it makes the bike about 2" too big. Challenge is that the seat post is taken out through the bottom of the bike so, unless somebody can come up with a quick release attachment for the saddle I don't think it will be convenient.
Will experiment with a Brompton with the seat post off as, if I can find a way of making it work it would be a match made in heaven.
