Has anyone used a Dahon or Tern carryon cover for a 16" folder?

Has anyone used either a Dahon or Tern carryon cover for a 16" folder? Is the bike just swimming in the bag? Do you have any pictures you can share of the bike in the cover? I have recently picked up a Mezzo and I really like the design of of the carryon cover...I am just worried that it will be excessively large on a folding bike with 16" wheels.

To answer your question, no I have no pics or tried this on a 16" bike.
I do have the bag though.

The cover straps to the bike with velcro strips so it is suspended by the straps in the bag, not sitting in the bag.
The cover is almost like throwing a garbage bag over an object and then carrying it by the sealed end of the bag.
You don't have to zip the bag closed to walk around because the zipper is on the bottom of the bag.
It might be baggy on a 16" bike but since it is draping over the bike, might not be an issue.
If anything it will be easier to throw the bag over the bike since it is smaller.

Not exactly answering the question you asked and you may already be aware of this but if the cover is for your Mezzo then there is a Mezzo specific cover but it is just a cover and not a bag with carry straps.

Hello cpg-
Yes, I do know of it. I currently have a generic cover that does not have shoulder straps...I was looking for something with carrying straps. The generic cover has lots of grease on it that I am trying to get off without much luck. So far I tried dish detergent and simple green. Neither has worked too well. Still trying. If I am going to replace, I would prefer to replace with a model with a shoulder strap.
