Rumor was they made a folding version of #10. I would sell my soul just to rent a Pedersen for a day.

I can't get that link to work, but assume that #10 was a Pedersen. There was a breakable Pedersen. An example of this can be seen in The National Cycling Museum, Nijmegen, Holland
I have owned a Pedersen, which I sold to my friend, as it was a bit too big for me, trying to buy it back now, as I'd like to fit 20" wheels and try to convert it to a folder.

Jesper Solling, in Copenhagen has apparently been put out of business,
By one of his German distributors ,undercutting his costs, taking away his customers or something..

Jesper has an interesting 20" wheel version he shows ,where the chainstay
and BB are one piece, and the other tube pairs bolt to it. so a knock down.

I don't know if there is more than a prototype.. http://www.pedersenbicycle.dk/
