Hi ega


Studying the patent with great interest; it answers my query about the folding process, of course. I note that you were your own agent!

I started out with a patent agent but had to dump him because he complicated things too much and would not change some claims because he said the controller would not like it. I contacted the controller and he said it was not a problem. So that saved me money and I eventually got the best out of a bad job.

Hi Bill Phinn

"Would it be possible to fit clipless MTB-style pedals and still be able to fold them in?"

You could fit normal fixed or folded pedals, but they still stick out too much even when folded.

What you see on my bike are purpose made cranks where the pedals fold 180 degrees inwards.
