Anyone have accessories interfere with the fold?

Had an inexpensive steel rack which was a bit of a problem, so swapped it out for a Rackstand on my Montague Swissbike X50.

Current issue is the Axa Victory Frame Lock attached using an AXA V Brake Mounting Bracket projects high enough from the brakes to interfere with the fold --- I'm considering switching to disc brakes so as to lower that, or maybe I should just take the easy way out and switch to a Tigr mini lock.

Yeah that's kind of a pain with folders - and the more compact the fold, the most stuff interferes. Sometimes I enjoy it in a puzzle game sort of way, but mostly it's just annoying or limiting in what you want do.

I have issues with add-ons all the time. I just move things around, testing the fold, until I come to an acceptable solution.
