    Older Bike Friday folded dimensions

    Could anyone tell me the folded dimensions of the older style Bike Fridays? Would they fit into the travel case?

    Thanks.

    I would contact BF and ask. I know I had a NWT (New World Tourist) many years ago and it fit in the travel case with no problems. This was around 1997 or so.

    Don't have the exact dimensions, but Bike Fridays have always fit in the suitcases offered with them by Green Gear - and the suitcases have been getting slightly bigger over time rather than smaller. I started with their original Samsonite case, upgraded to the larger Carlton after the Samsonite got some holes in it, and now Green Gear is carrying a different Samsonite that's even bigger than the Carlton. (The current Samsonite is even a little over the normal airline limit of 62" L+W+H but I've never heard of it causing anyone a problem.)
    Note that to fit in the case requires some disassembly beyond simply folding the bike.

    My Pocket Rocket was purchased in '94.
