Folding Recumbents

Who makes a folding recumbent?

I may be going to Key West in a few months and am looking for a recumbent that fits on a plane. Linear has one that folds but is too big. Found a cool rider on this web page: http://www.aibq.com/belize/indexen.html Has anybody tried it and if so what did you think?

Alternatively, does anyone know where someone can rent a recumbent in Key West?

Bike Friday is in the process of redesigning their folding recumbent. Click here for their statement on the new bike.

Here's an interesting thread on making a BikeE CT into a folder.

There are links to Gaerlan's approach as well as Don's excellent cut in two and dowel approach.

The Dutch manufacterer M5 has a nice folding recumbent, but I don't know if it folds small enough for your needs.
