Hi all,

I'm curious to hear if anyone has found a folding bike that will fit through the baggage door.  Would be especially neat if two would fit!

I have a couple of older Dahon's with 16 inch wheels that fit through the baggage door.  In order to fit two at least one back seat has to come out, though.

Geoff and Dan,

Thanks for your replies.  The GoCycle is very cool (albeit a bit pricey) and it sounds like a 16" Dahon might fit the bill.  I'll post back if I find out any more information.

I also own a Scwhinn 20-inch bike, you can check reviews at dirt bike advisor which I recently used on a trip that required me to bike approximately 10 miles after landing. I stowed it in the cargo hold of a Piper Archer. Except for getting it on the wing to fit back there (it wouldn't fit through the door), it was simple.

I have a couple of single speed 16 inch Dahons (purchased back in the 80's from Camping World) that fit easily through the RV-10 baggage door.  And a more recent 20 inch Dahon MU P8 that won't but rides like a big bike and is easy to toss into the back seat.  The 16 inchers have steel frames and weigh almost exactly as much as the magnesium framed 20 inch bike.
