SoloRock Spin3 Fold photos

A little humor: Spin 3 - the un-fold story

The first photo is the bottom view of the main tube at the swivel. Notice the Fsir emblem on the bolt cap.
The second is the top view
The third is the front view
Fourth is the magnet and its receiver plate.

One of these rainy days I'll pop the swivel bolt to see/inspect the folding point. Maybe at 500 miles, only at 250, so at least another week till I put it back on the repair stand. This week's repair was to replace the brake pads. Riding in the rain cause squeaking, squawking and other annoying sounds that did not go away after drying and cleaning and re-toe in. The bike now sports new salmon kool pads.

More photos to come as requested. Thanks everyone for their interest in this sprightly little bike.

thanks for posting these. it looks like what i thought - a star nut with a head set cap screw holds the assembly together.

@AccuNeal - Thanks for these pics. When you do maintenance where you separate the top tube from the chainstay section, please show us the innards of that "hinge" and share your thoughts on it. I wonder whether it's feasible to break down like that for packing in a suitcase.
