I hope you can help, this may be slightly unusual for you. I've a spinal injury that makes mobility a problem especially when I arrive at an airfield in my aeroplane. Could you have a look at this 2 minute film and tell me what you think? The bike has to fit through a 21 inch diagonal opening to be able to fit in to the luggage compartment behind the seats. If a folder will fit it would be fantastic and would help my mobility enormously. I wonder if I fit quick releases to remove the wheels that might help? Thank you. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L_rRE...eature=related
A Brompton with a telescoping 2 section seat post,
would make removing saddle, to get the overall size
down to 21" an easy thing..
It's a option from the factory, .. or after the fact if you buy a used Brommy.
where are you located....???? fly to Olney Illinois, I pick you up on the airport and bring some bikes to try out. I am thinking about the Curve SL from Dahon. You would of course take the seatpost out and store it seperately and the pedals are quick release as well.
weight is around 23 lbs...
Thank you brakemeister for your very kind offer, fantastic actually and made me smile. Unfortunately I'm in England so can't take you up on your offer. The Curve looks good and potentially a good fit with the wheels removed so thanks again for the pointer, I'll definitely be checking it out.
