Folded Bicycle Dimensions
Below are images of the Swift in various fold configurations along with approximate bicycle dimensions. All bicycle dimensions on this page are to the very extremes of the bike, including any protrusions like pedals or handlebars.
This image shows the Swift in the quick-fold configuration which is done simply by loosening the 2 quick-release levers that secure the seat post and folding the Swift in half. In this configuration the Swift measures 36.5" L x 40.25" H x 20" W. If you need to roll the Swift (say through your office lobby) lock the post just above the rear wheel, pull back on the handlebars and roll the Swift on the rear wheel.
The handlebars are the wide point in this configuration. Removing the handlebar riser, by loosening the quick-release lever that secures the riser to the fork, makes the Swift 36.5" L x 40.25" H x 14.5" W.
This image shows the Swift in the quick-fold configuration, with a pair of the folding pedals, and the riser removed. In this configuration the Swift measures 36.5" L x 37.25" H x 10.25" W. Removing the front wheel (also done by loosening a quick-release lever) makes the Swift 30" L x 37.25" H x 10.25" W.
This image shows the Swift resting on the seat and the rear wheel. With the seat turned this way it provides a nice stable way of storing the Swift. This is the same folding configuration as pictured above, but with the front wheel removed. In this configuration the Swift measures 39" L x 23.25" H x 10.25" W.
This image shows the Swift with the seat post removed and resting on the front forks. In this configuration the Swift measures 32" L x 24.25" H x 10.25" W.
The goal here is to show various folding configurations you could easily use day to day. The Swift can get even smaller, but this requires removing the rear wheel. For most riders, the only time it may be necessary to remove the rear wheel is when packing the Swift in a suitcase.
