Does anyone make a folding bike that will fold small enough to go on an Amtrak train as a Carry-On baggage? The reason I am asking is there are some stations that do not have checked baggage service. The size limit for Carry-On is 28Ē x 22Ē x 11Ē (71 x 56 x 28 cm).
I know that the selling point of some folding bikes is that they can be folded in 15 seconds. I do not care about that. If I was in that big of a hurry I would not be using a bike. Once I get off that train I donít care if it takes 10 sec or 10 minutes to get the bike ready to ride. So I was thinking if I took the wheels off before I folded it that would get the folded size down some. They allow 2 carry-on bags of the size I mentioned. Maybe the wheels could go in a separate bag.
I have never built a frame but I believe I could. My dad taught me to weld when I was a teenager and that was long, long ago. If they donít sell a bike that will fold that small maybe I could make one. Give me a good welder and Iíll fix anything but the crack of dawn.
