Chris Burbank's Folding SWB
Chris Burbank has been thinking about possible designs for a folding recumbent after seeing (and buying) an Airnimal wedgie folder at Calhoun Cycles. He brought in the main frame for his prototype, which is really slick.

His challenge now is how to build a seat that will detach and/or fold. Mark suggested he look at the seat on a Haluzak recumbent, which looks like a regular tube frame mesh seat at first glance but has cross tubes that slip into one another, so as soon as the seat mesh Velcro is unfastened the whole works comes apart into much smaller pieces!
