I'm smiling. That alone should scare you.

I've started preparing for the trip to Adelaide, which means being able to pack it into a bag/box for airline transport (apparently in our paranoid new world bikes won't be accepted unless packed these days).

This would be nigh impossible if it was a fixed frame but voila:

The remaining issues are

a) Making sure I pack it right, including removing and replacing any particularly fragile bits. Writing a checklist for that.

b) Finding (or more likely having made) a bag/box big enough to take the folded trike plus seat. Investigating several options there, will have to decide soon.

Folded the trike is about 100 x 80 x 60 cm. Roughly.

And as you can see I've taken a bunch of photos so I can email them to prospective suppliers.

A bag has now been made and I'll be posting photos once I have it and the trike packed in it.

Seems both I and the gentleman who made the bag managed to significantly overmeasure. And we did so at least twice. 

Oh well, there'll be plenty of room inside for other stuff...
