Have you seen one mounted on a folding bike yet? I've seen the CM on bents, but never a folder.

It mentions folding in the ad but no bikes are shown. the kit is for a 20" wheel.

I saw that, but the fact it "could" work on a 20" wheeled bike isn't really the same as having it work well on a folder. Given how many bents they show with a CM attached and the fact folders are not that rare in the PNW I wonder why there isn't a single photo of one with a CM installed?

You'd think Terracycle would borrow a folder and install the CM for some photos? Otherwise how would they know it even works on any folders?

I would be unlikely to spend that kind of $$ for a solution the vendor isn't overly interested in.
