Czech folding bike design: 26" + mono folks

"Unlike other folding bicycles, this one by Czech designer Mikuláš Novotný has full-size wheels and can be rolled home rather than carried."

That's a smart design.
I'd like to see it adapted to a smaller wheeled bike.

Looks good. I bet the designer was/is frustrated with the bit of fork poking out but there's no easy way round it.

non folding ones roll nicely on their wheels..

OK maybe the thing stores in the garret /apartment easier..
