    Folding Optima Baron lowracer at Spezi 2010

    This has been burning up the recumbent boards...and when you take a look, you'll see why.

    My take? The folding speed and folded size would be impressive for any bike with a "full-sized" rear wheel. When you consider that this is a recumbent, its performance is really something else.

    That's one of the coolest folds I've seen.

    I ride a Baron and would love for it to fold like that. It is one LONG bike to transport otherwise. Very clever work!
