    The engine and its control overrides everything else.

    You'll see, soon enough we'll all be whizzing over the subway turn styles on hyperfolding tikits (doesn't citibank offer some kind of contactless metrocard?). A split second faster fold is important when you need to get it done before you hit the ground!

    Should be a big hit in Japan too where sometimes people run full speed into packed subway cars in order to build up enough momentum to squeeze themselves in. I mean, if you think about it you really don't need a smaller folder if you can just put more force into cramming the one you got, right?

    Here's one with 20" wheels and no suspension that's nearly as impressive (and I understand suspension helps a lot):

    If my saddle were low enough that I could do that, the end of the seat post protruding below the frame would catch the obstacle. . .

    I came to say I must be folding . . .
