Packing my 24 inch folder-

Heading to Dallas tomorrow so I took my time to document the packing. Released the brakes and flipped it upside down. Removed the quick release pedals and hubs. Removed the wheel and installed my park tools dummy hub.

Loosened handlebar and removed the fork. I use gear ties to keep the bearings in place on the headtube and to hold bubble wrap on exposed surfaces. Folded frame and set the handlebar next to the rear wheel, which is sprocket down.

Placed the removed seat/seatpost between the frame and fork alongside it. I prefer dense foam to position and protect the components. Added bike cleats, 2 spare tubes, pump, and tools.

All told I am under 43 pounds and could roll and add clothing if I wanted to get me closer to the 50 pound limit.
