    Show us your fold!

    Hey, not sure if this'll catch on or not, but how about a thread with videos of your fold? It'd be neat to see the various techniques and tips we use across all the various folders there are. You can be still figuring it out, going for a new record, or showing a step-by-step fold. (Thanks to feijai's thread for the inspiration!)

    Here's my Mu SL:

    Nice, looks like you've got that fold down. Seeing you next to the Curve puts some perspective on how small that thing really is.

    Do you have a digital camera with video? That's what I used.

    Oops, this was supposed to be a thread to show us your "fold", not your "folder". But congrats on the new purchase. Now go make that vid!

    Oops, sorry! Ha, will do though. Just have to practice a bit. It takes me over 20 seconds to fold right now.

    It usually doesn't concern me how much time it takes to fold or unfold, since I'm not catching trains or buses. When I arrive at my office, I usually fold the bike in the side door vestibule before heading to the restroom to change and carry the bike to my desk.

    See the fold of my Dahon Mu P8 here.

    If something doesn't ache, I could be trying harder.

    I just like to see how the different folders fold and how people do it. I'm not too concerned with the speed.

    I can fold my Curve fairly fast but I'm not trying to win any records with it. I like the idea that I can fold it faster than most people can lock up their regular bikes and occasionally I need to catch a bus.
