    Holding folded Swift together

    I am looking for the best, or a good, way to hold a folded Swift Xootr together and also minimize scratching. If you remove the head post and perhaps pull the front wheel, both easy, you have 2-3 pieces to carry. Are velcro strips or small bungee cords suitable? Is there a way that the cords or velcro can also pad the parts to minimize scratches?

    I use big velcro straps. I do sort of a figure eight with the velcro that helps pad it. I've also put some electrical tape where there is likely to be contact. That will be removed soon as I am going with some thing plastic that sticks on contact like the 3M protective film they use to protect car hoods.
