Cane Creek Ergo grips

I like to install Cane Creek Ergo Grips for my Dahon folding bike. I wonder if I could still fold up nicely with those grips. I don't feel comfortable with the original grips in my Dahon and thinking of put on bullhorn bar ends or Cane Creek Ergo grips.

It will fold fine. You have to release the handlebar quick release and rotate it downwards. No compromise in the size of the fold.

I put Bontrager ergo grips on my Sunlova (see avatar), they are very nice and actually hook over the tyre helping keep the folded bike together.
