I'm thinking about getting a folding bike. I was interested in the Citizen Gotham and Miami, but the Tokyo model with 16" wheels looks like it might fit in a suitcase.
My rolling suitcase has a measurement of roughly 28x12x20 inches, but I'm guessing the interior is a bit smaller. The Tokyo is advertised as having a folded measurement of 26 x 11 x 20 inches. Needless to say the 20-inch width is worrying me. I suppose I can get a slightly larger bag, but am thinking I might can put the bike in at a slight angle.
I am just curious if any of you have any experience with getting the bag on an airplane in a standard suitcase?
Oh, and just for my plan, my hope is to put the bike in a suitcase, throw a few clothes and stuff around it to get it up to weight and to protect the bike, and then take the rest of my stuff as carry-on. I'll spend my first night at a nicer hotel and leave the empty suitcase for a week or two while I tour by bike. I hope to take my young teen kids with me.
Any problem putting 20 or 30 miles a day on a bike with 16-inch wheels?
Thanks for any help!
