Folding bikes @ Eurobike 2017

I didn't find much folding bike-related news on the Net about the Eurobike 2017, but here's an article that focuses on e-bikes:

The cable is mentioned for the Dahon.

Nice rack with castor wheels on the Tern. I bet castors like that in the future is a "must" on electric folders if you want to take them folded to train stations and into buildings.

This was the first major trade show since the Brompton ebike was debuted. IIRC Brompton had a team ride (over several days) the bikes across a slice of Germany to the show.

After reneging on the Kickstarter promised hard carrying case, Dahon was showing this nifty padded soft case with extending handle and dolly wheels for their new Curl.
