I packed up my folders many times in a 28" x 21" hardshell suitcase no problems. Everything comes apart: crank arms, rear triangle (on the Swift) and forks (of the Swift) You Brompton owners have it made in comparison, but I am just not a Brompton owner. Forks are a P.I.T.A. to mess with but you get really fast at assembly and disassembly if you do it over 200 times. Raleigh 'Folding 20' is a bit faster break-down and set-up than the swift actually.

ps. One time I left all my tools in a Swiss train station but they were easily replaceable.

On the left you see the frame before the wheels go in, on the right you see the wheels and a picture on how to pack it , incase it 'becomes' unpacked. Everything is secured or zip tied together so nothing goes missing. Fun!
