rolling your folder

Can you? I know that Tikit rolls beautifully. Brompton too, I think.
Do you find it easy to move your bike around when folded?

I'm asking because as nice as it is to ride, NWT is a bit of a pain to carry. I'm commuting to work on it, to get used to it and work out any kinks, but have to fold and carry it inside the office building. It's a bit too heavy for me to carry with one hand, and because it's bouncing against my leg as I walk, I'm bruised like you wouldn't believe!

I do realize NWT is a different kind of bike than the Tikit. But is there a way to fold it so it can be rolled? Can I add wheels to the rack a la Brompton?
Any ideas?

I'm not sure if you can buy this or just find to wheel a bolt it onto there but it seems to work really well on that video.

chucky showed me how to roll my Downtube and its been pretty easy to move around so far. sometimes when I'm not paying attention i'll lock the wheels up but otherwise its smooth rolling.
