    Packing a Tikit?

    I am having trouble packing my Tikit. I can't get the overfold to occcur with the fork turned toward the rear derailleur. Any tips will be greatly appreciated.

    I haven't put my Tikit in a suitcase so I can't give you any tips myself.

    The advice was take off the front brake-which worked. The rear der. is a D/A, but the front brake, a KCNC, instead of straddling it was contacting the rear der. preventing the overfold and making the bike sit too high in the case. I am leaving for Israel on Thursday and the bike is packed. When I get back, I will try another fr. brake and see if the KCNC is a bad match with the Tikit when packed.
