  • I was paying attention to your headset, I guess is Bluetooth...is it a regular headset? Or is it somewhat a hear protector? My hear protector are very uncomfortable and when I wear them I can’t listen to the music...since woodworking is an hobby I end up not wearing them 🙉

  • Couldn’t you take off a bike’s wheels, twist the handlebars sideways and put it flat in a big, thin lightweight nylon bag and call it luggage? Keep the bag rolled up on the back of the bike ready for emergencies?

  • I never heard about this 20" regulation at the Deutsche Bahn. Here comes what I found: 1. "Fahrräder mit einem Raddurchmesser bis 16 Zoll können kostenfrei als Handgepäck mitgenommen werden. Zur Unterbringung sind die üblichen Gepäckablagen zu nutzen. Beim Verstauen über dem Sitzplatz muss eine Gefahr für Reisende ausgeschlossen sein. Deshalb bitten wir Sie das Rad z. B. in eine Tasche oder durch mitgebrachte Spanngurte zwischen anderen Gepäckstücken sicher zu verkeilen. Es dürfen aber keine Beschädigungen am Zug entstehen." I think, the 16" means first of all bicycles for children. 2. "Ein zusammengeklapptes bzw. zusammengefaltetes Faltrad muss im Zug wie Gepäck untergebracht werden. Hierfür stehen z. B. Gepäckregale und Mehrzweckbereiche zur Verfügung. Eine Fahrradkarte und eine Stellplatzreservierung im Fernverkehrszug sind nicht nötig. Bei der Unterbringung des Faltrads über dem Sitzplatz, im gefalteten Zustand, muss das Faltrad so abgelegt werden, dass es nicht verrutschen kann und eine Gefahr für Reisende ausgeschlossen ist. Dabei können z. B. eine mitgebrachte Tasche oder mitgebrachte Spanngurte helfen oder das Faltrad wird zwischen anderen Gepäckstücken verkeilt." My Montague folding bike is 26", and I had never any discussion about the wheel size.

  • I am a folding bike tourer, been riding everywhere with my 20 inch wheel Dahon on the planes, trains & buses. I compliment the creativity you implied on this bicycle. I was hopeful since the beginning of the video that you'd come out with something detailed, feature-packed, more than just a foldable bike - 1) a bike that fits into a 32 inch luggage that travels safely on a plane, 2) nicely fold and perfectly aligned front & rear wheels so you can cart the bike in the mall without getting much attentions from the securities and the public. To add value, I'm suggesting 3) the 32 inch trolley luggage is converted into trailer for the ride so you can carry stuffs bought along the ride or at least Smudo the dog. Good luck Laura!

  • Genus! But safety tip> Wear long arm/hand gloves, goggles, face guard & a spark/fire proof apron or something that cover the front part of your body so you don't get sparked on or slightly burnt by the metal cutter. 👍

  • think there restictions in the folded size , sumting about the bike needing to fit in a storage space between two seatbacks , or on the luggage rack above the seats not sure , nice idea with the bikechain for a hinge you might need to make the roundbar inside the tube a little longer so the locking groove is a little more than covered , i think IF the bike breaks it will break near the slots you cut intoo it , you could allso double up the wall thicknes at that point could do a hand twist knob on the steering pin so you can twist the steer off or rotate it in line with the front wheel , should help making the folded bike narrower , make the wheels removable with twistknobs and the package gets smaller still

  • It actually looks a lot sturdier than most folding bikes since your bike has the steel tubes on the inside on the bike rather than just a hinge with a lock! This is really amazing.
