Packing a Tern Verge S27h Folding Bicycle into a Suitcase

I like to have a bicycle wherever I travel. And my recent five-day conference trip to Mexico was no exception.

And with many airlines offering free carriage of bicycles as sports equipment, often there’s no need to pack them into a box. Just put them into a bag of some description (either padded or not), and check them in. So long as the final package doesn’t exceed the weight limit (often 23kg for international flights), you’re good to go. Airlines I’ve flown recently that accept bicycles as free sports equipment include Air New Zealand, ANA (Japan), Austrian Airways (pre-registration required), Lufthansa (pre-registration reguired), and Air China.

Some airlines, however, still charge exorbitantly for bicycles that exceed the regulation size (157 linear cm for most flights). Some recent airlines I’ve flown recently include United Airlines and Aero Mexico. For airlines like this, you’ll either have to pay up to US$200 one-way for the bike, or try to fit the bike into a regulation-sized package.

This is where a small-wheeled folding bike comes into it’s own. Even a long-wheelbase, touring-oriented Tern Verge S27h folding bike (see my review here) fits into a regulation suitcase in less than 30 minutes. You can have your cake and eat it too.

Fitting a folding bike into a suitcase for the first time, however, is sort of like doing a jigsaw puzzle. So here, I’ve outlined how I managed to fit Tern Bicycle’s flagship touring folder into a cheap, very run-of-the-mill suitcase.

Suitcase size

Mine was a 75cm x 31cm x 50cm semi-rigid suitcase. To be honest, the size was less than ideal. A few extra centimeters in width would have been helpful. Being a semi-rigid case, however, I was able to force the case to accept the bike. The suitcase weighed 4kg when empty. Other options for suitcases include Tern’s Airporter, but the total linear dimensions of that case are 192cm, and this makes me reluctant to use it. It would only take one over-zealous check-in staff member to cost you US$200. That said, the Airporter option is super attractive, as there is much less disassembly required. Bike Friday also produces an awesome suitcase-tralier option which would allow me to ride away from the airport (I love being able to do this after a long flight), rather than having to lug the heavy suitcase to accommodation. The wheels etc add weight to the entire package though.

Total package weight

Including the suitcase, padding (tarp, cardboard, and foam pipe insulation), bike (Shimano Alfine 11-speed internal gear hub equipped) with no rear rack, tools, pedals, and locks, the total weight was 23.3kg. Add the collapsable Tern Cargo rack, and you’re probably looking at something around the 24kg mark. Remove the locks and add them to carry-on baggage, and you’ll be within the 23kg limit.


Step One - Remove the rear wheel, front wheel, mudguards, front and rear racks, kick-stand, seatpost, seat, handlebars, stem, and front forks. Collapse the Tern Cargo rack. Deflate the tires to reduce the diameter of the wheels; the Schwalbe Big Apple 2.15 tires are big! With a slightly wider and deeper suitcase, I think I would not have needed to remove the saddle from the seatpost, nor the handlebars from the stem, nor deflate the tires. If you’re using the standard (and in my opinion sub-optimal) DualDrive setup, you’ll need to remove the rear derailleur also. To avoid the rear triangle being crushed, make sure to insert a pipe secured by a quick-release or something similar. My pipe is made from cheap PVC tubing cut to the right length.

 Step Two Place the saddle, padded seatpost and stem, and Spartan rack on the outer bottom of the suitcase. Next place the rear wheel on the bottom right-hand-side of the suitcase, with mudguards around the tire. It is highly recommended to remove the disk brake rotors, to avoid them getting bent. To protect the bottom of the suitcase, a plastic axle disk is recommended.

Step Three - Fold the tarp over this layer. Place the handlebars at the top. Place the folded main frame into the suitcase top-tube down, with the rear triangle at the left bottom. Slide a piece of cardboard between the top tube and handlebars to protect against rubbing. The forks can now be slid into the rear triangle. Make sure to pad all metal-on-metal contact points with cardboard or foam. In particular take care to pad the area where the axle on the rear axle protrudes; I missed this point on my first try and ended up with some serious gouging on the seat tube.

Step Four - Fold the tarp over this second layer, and lay the front wheel down. Once again, better to remove the disk brake rotor to avoid it getting bent. Make sure there’s a generous layer of cardboard or other padding between the bottom of the wheel and top of the wheel.

Step Five – Cram that suitcase closed, and use a suitcase strap to reduce load on the zippers, and to keep everything in place.

Step Six - Fly to your destination store that suitcase somewhere, and go for a rice (in my case this was southern Mexico).

Tern Verge S27h folding touring bicycle – A gravel-road-touring review

I took Tern’s dedicated cycle touring 20-inch folding bike, the Verge S27h, on one of New Zealand’s more challenging back-country gravel road routes this past week – the Molesworth Muster Trail. The plan was to see some of New Zealand’s spectacular remote scenery, and also put the bike through its paces – can a 20-inch folder (and its rider) handle the rigors of almost 200km of corrugated gravel and 3,300m of vertical climbing over four days?

After four days’ riding, here’s my summary:

Overall – Considering the ease with which the folding form factor allows me to transport this bike, the Tern Verge S27h is a fantastic bike for short-notice, on-a-whim cycle touring – including gravel roads.


  • The ease with which the bike can be folded and taken on public transport (airplane, bus etc.) cannot be overstated.
  • Super solid-feeling bike, even over rough gravel roads – the fat tires are superb. For a 20-inch wheeled bike, this thing eats up rough terrain.
  • The long wheelbase is awesome – the bike yearns to travel in an effortless straight line.
  • Loaded up with heavy panniers, the bike shines – so stable.
  • The cargo rack is superb – the low pannier rails are great.
  • The seat post pump was very handy.
  • Those BB7 disk brakes – so reliable and powerful.


  • For gravel road cycling, this bike will never compare to a big-wheeled expedition bike.
    • More care is required in picking one’s line through the rough stuff.
    • On the gravel roads, I felt bumps more than I would have on my 29er touring bike.
    • Softer wet patches felt slower than they would have on a larger-wheeled bike.
  • On the morning of the second day of riding, I did a check of all the bolts on the bike. A disturbingly large number of them were loose, including the brake adapter bolts! This is clearly a factory issue, so make sure you check and tighten all bolts before heading off.
  • No bottle-cage mounts(?!). Seriously, there is nowhere on this bike to directly screw a bottle cage onto the frame. For a dedicated tourer, this is very curious! (UPDATE 2015/5/27: Thomas, the designer of the S27h from Velowerks, was kind enough to give his opinion about this on my previous post here; his reasoning sounds perfectly sound…looks like I need to find a bottle cage adapter).

The bike

Developed in collaboration with Velowerk in Switzerland, the bike is Tern’s dedicated folding touring bike, the Verge S27h. It is built from the ground up to be a solid, versatile bike: front and rear racks, eccentric bottom bracket (allows for hub gears without chain tensioners), Avid BB7 mechanical disk brakes, wide (2.15 inch) tires, dynamo hub lighting, and a long wheelbase. The bike’s catalogue weight is 16.4kg – this is no lightweight.


In the gearing department, the bike came equipped with a Sram DualDrive system. This consists of a three-speed internal gear hub on the rear wheel, to which a 9-speed cassette is attached. That gives you 27 gears without a front derailleur. I really can’t be bothered with the maintenance associated with external gears (we live in northern Japan with 4 months of snow a year), so I had a new rear wheel built up using a Shimano Alfine 11-speed hub (I used a Velocity Aeroheat rim for the new wheel). Using an internal gear hub on the Verge S27h is a no-brainer; install, adjust the chain tension using the eccentric bottom bracket, and you’re set.

I’m also a fan of the Hebie Chainglider – a fully enclosed floating chainguard that keeps dust, mud, grit, and splashes of water away from the chain. The fully enclosed version only works with a single chainring at the front and a single cog at the back. That is, only if you’re running single speed or an internal gear hub. At present I have a 21-tooth cog on the back wheel, and a 42-tooth chainring. With the Alfine 11-speed hub, this gives me a gear range of approximately 19.7 to 80.4 gear inches. The original gear range on the bike, using the 46-tooth front chainring, SRAM 11-32 cassette and SRAM DualDrive hub, was 22 to 117 inches (link saved to PDF here).

Long story short, with the Alfine hub I have around the same ‘easy’ gear as the standard DualDrive setup, but have lost a little bit of the ‘harder’ gears (which I never use much anyway).

The Molesworth Muster Trail

The Molesworth Muster Trail is part of the New Zealand Cycle Trail. This spectacular part of the trail starts in Blenheim at the top of the South Island and ends in Hanmer, the quaint little hot spa town in northern Canterbury. The total length of the trail is 207km, and is classified as a four out of a five point difficulty scale – the trail is almost exclusively on gravel roads, and consists of around 3,300m of vertical climbing.

The route is remote – after leaving either Blenheim or Seddon, there are zero shops for 200km. The route runs through Molesworth Station; New Zealand’s largest operating farm. Water must be either carried or filtered/treated from rivers along the way. The roads are hard-packed gravel, but suffer from washboarding/corrugations for much of the route. And the climbs…oh the climbs. They are steep. While not as long, they are easily as steep as many I’ve cycled in Central Asia. Two basic campsites run by the Department of Conservation (DOC) are available for NZ$6 a night, as well as one free campsite at Heddon Bridge. Wild camping is not allowed anywhere within Molesworth Station. Furthermore, the road is only open to the general public without a permit between December and April. The road can be closed during this time, however. Indeed, it was closed to automobiles on this occasion due to high fire risk.

I started the ride in Picton after arriving from Wellington on the InterIslander ferry, so my route was this one, below.

Day One - Picton to Redwood Pass – 40km (Saturday 21st Feb, 2015)

My first day of this trip actually started in Sapporo City, in northern Japan. I live in Sapporo, and was heading to New Zealand to visit family. What better opportunity to throw the folding bike on the plane and hit the New Zealand back-country for a bit. I flew Air New Zealand, so there was no extra charge for the bike. I boxed the bike up, but in hindsight just a heavy duty clear plastic bag would have been less hassle.

A few transfers and around 20 hours later, I was in Wellington, the capital of New Zealand, arriving at 9:30am on Saturday morning. My wife Haidee was already in Wellington (there doing some home-based work on her PhD), and so we spent a meandering several hours cycling from the airport to the InterIslander ferry terminal, where I would head from Wellington to Picton, across the Cook Strait to the South Island.

In the end I arrived in Picton at 5:30pm on Saturday and promptly started heading south towards the beginning of the Molesworth Muster Trail, dropping by a supermarket in Picton on the way. Dusk on day one would see me wild camping on the Redwood Pass back-road half way between Blenheim and Seddon. I found out the hard way that the fence I pitched my tent next to was electric!

Day Two - Redwood Pass to Heddon Bridge – 80km (Sunday 22nd Feb, 2015)

I had a stiff tailwind from Picton to my campsite yesterday, but this morning I woke to a stiff southerly wind; not a great start to the day considering I had to travel south-west for the entire day.

I woke just on daybreak, and was on the road by 6:30am. I forewent breakfast, planning on cycling an hour or so before stopping for food. The day started with a stiff climb up Redwood pass. While it was only 200m in height, the road was loose gravel at times and steep; this would be the first test of the Tern Verge S27h on a steep gravel climb, and later a fast downhill.

The previous day I had bought a big loaf of wholemeal sourdough bread, Parmesan cheese, Dutch salami, and some fresh vegetables, so I stopped about an hour into the climb to make a sandwich. Only one car had passed in the entire 2 hours I was on the road. The silence, only broken by gentle birdsong, was exquisite.

It wasn’t long after breakfast that I hit the top of the pass, and hurtled down towards the sleepy little town of Seddon, where I would spend a few hours at the local Backpacker’s using their WIFI to send some urgent documents to my research collaborators. The Verge handled the gravel downhill OK. Not as fun as a 29er, but not entirely kill-joy-esque. The relatively fat 2.15 Schwalbe Big Apples I think help greatly in this regard – drop the pressure in them and they do a valiant effort at absorbing bumps and keeping the bike upright and stable.

After a quick lunch in Seddon, I set off for the Molesworth Muster Trail proper. I was away at around 12:30pm, and would not make the 55km to Heddon Bridge until 5pm.

The stretch of road from Seddon to Heddon Bridge climbs steadily along a mix of paved and gravel road, until about 20km from Heddon Bridge, where pavement is left behind for good. For much of the first 20km, the road is lined with vineyards, producing the wine that the Malborough region in New Zealand is so famous for.

As the wet road in the photo above suggests, the weather was a mix of very light rain, cloud and the occasional sunny spells during the three days I was on the road. This was certainly not a bad thing; it can get extremely dry and hot through here, and I was happy for the respite.

Once past the vineyards, the countryside becomes sheep country. Including the famous merino stud from which all that merino clothing goodness is made from.

I made it to the Heddon Bridge campsite by around 5:30pm after a grueling 80km ride. The last 15km or so felt like they would continue forever, and included numerous stiff ups and downs. At the campsite I met up with two other cyclists. Both were on more sensible mountain bikes.

Day Three – Heddon Bridge to Acheron Campsite – 105km (Monday 23rd Feb, 2015)

I only had 1 litre of drinking water left by morning, so I decided to get on the road before daybreak, to make the most of the cooler hours of the day. If the sun decided to shine today, I would be in trouble, since I wasn’t carrying any water treatment. Streams and rivers in New Zealand are known to carry giardia, and I wasn’t willing to risk it. I knew it would be 50km to the Cobb Cottage campground where I would have access to safe drinking water.

Circumstance would swing in my favor however, as the day was fairly dingy and rainy – perfect cycling conditions. Only once was the rain heavy enough to warrant a jacket and rain pants. The other times it was only a very light misty rain, enough to keep me cool.

10km to go to Molesworth Station, Molesworth Muster Trail, New Zealand

The route carried on with its grunty steep ups and downs, all the while gaining altitude. Speedy descents were tempered by washboard road surfaces, which took plenty of concentration on the small-wheeled bike.

For all my effort, however, I was rewarded with an ever-increasing air of remoteness. By the time I arrived at the DOC campsite at the Cobb Cottage at 11:30am, I had only seen one other vehicle.

At the Cobb Cottage campsite, the volunteer DOC rangers greeted me with arms open, offering me a dry spot on their hut veranda so I could make myself a sandwich for lunch. When they offered me a coffee, I jumped at the chance. Amazing souls!

I spent an hour sitting and chatting with the ranger couple, and just as I was readying to leave, the two mountain-bikers from Heddon Bridge arrived. They would stop at the campground to stay the night, but since I was supposed to be in New Zealand visiting family, I decided to carry on and tackle the remaining, mostly downhill, to Acheron Campsite, a further 60km away.

Fellow cyclists on the Molesworth Muster Trail, New Zealand

While it is mostly downhill from Cobb Cottage to Acheron, there is one last big climb before the gradual downhill happens: Wards Pass. It is not a very long pass, but after a few days of remote cycling, it felt very steep indeed. Curious cows watched my every move as I cycled past.

Once up and over the pass, I hit the gloriously gradual downhill stretch of road across Isolated Flat. Imagine tens of kilometers of mildly potholed but very fast gravel, with a nice stiff tailwind. Once again, the small-wheeled Tern was not perfect for the task, but wasn’t useless either. It did the job.

The only souls I met along the way were two other cyclists, making their way up the gradual incline into the headwind…but they seemed in good spirits (see their adventures here).

This part of the route presented me with a few fun curiosities including shallow fords…

I finally arrived at the Acheron DOC Campsite at 7:10pm, around 13 hours since I left Heddon Bridge. At least 11 hours of that was cycling. Despite the overall drop in altitude after Wards Pass, stiff climbs over bluffs and Isolated Pass meant that it was not all plain sailing.

The DOC rangers at the campsite were expecting me, and invited me in for a coffee. We chatted about Japan and different places they had been posted at. One of them had once spent 7 weeks on the Kermadec Islands without seeing another person for the entire time. These are an interesting breed, those DOC rangers.

I paid my $6 for camp fees, set up my tent, and was fast asleep by 8:30pm.

Day Four – Acheron to Hanmer – 22km (Tuesday 24th Feb, 2015)

This fourth and final day of the trip was a short one. Like every day on the trip, I woke before daybreak and cycled around 10km before stopping for breakfast. It was a cold morning as I cycled upstream along the Clarence River – I had to wear a hooded fleece and gloves!

Soon enough I arrived at the junction to head up over the final pass into the spa town of Hanmer. My time in the quiet remoteness of the Molesworth Muster Trail was coming to an end.

It was only a short hour before I hit the top of Jack’s Pass in the heat of a bright sunny day…

And careened down the other side into the relative bustle of the sleepy little town of Hanmer. Only to immediately head to the public library to catch up on all the school work I had left unattended for four glorious days of remote cycling.

From Hanmer I caught the 4:30pm bus to Christchurch. $35 (including the bike folded in the trailer).

2015 Tern Verge S27h Folding Bicycle: Initial Impressions Review

UPDATE (2015/03/12) – See my gravel road touring review of the Tern Verge S27h here:

The Tern Verge S27h 20-inch wheeled folding bike on the Molesworth Muster Trail, New Zealand


I bought a Tern Verge S27h 20-inch wheeled folding touring bicycle the other day. This is an evolving first-impressions review blog post.

2015 Tern Verge S27h folding touring bicycle on winter snow (Muroran City, Japan)

Folding bikes with small wheels. They elicit all the usual questions: Don’t you have to pedal faster? Aren’t they really cramped?  It must be hard work?

The answer is of course no to most of those questions under most cycling conditions: The speed at which one must pedal depends not on wheelsize alone, but also the size of cogs; smaller wheels require larger cogs…once you’ve sorted that out, you’ll be pedaling just as fast or slow as the other larger-wheeled bicycles. And they’re only as cramped as the frame size determines them to be: buy a small-wheeled bike with a large enough frame, and it’ll feel just like your bigger bike.

The smaller wheelsize does have it’s limitations though: bumps, potholes, and for us up here in northern Japan soft snow are not the surfaces where the 20-inch wheels shine.

That said, I’ve been mulling over getting a folding bike for some time now. I live in Japan with my partner Haidee, and on our frequent journeys on trains here with our bikes, we’ve often wished we had something more compact; bikes have to be bagged on trains in Japan, which adds undue stress to the start of a trip (removing pedals, handlebars, seats, front wheels etc etc.). For a while we got away with having the handlebars and seats of our big bikes sticking out of the bike bags, but our local train station has cracked down on this and we need to dismantle the big bikes more thoroughly now.

Taking bicycles on a train in Sapporo Station, Hokkaido, Japan

To this end, Haidee got herself a Bike Friday Silk, which is a beautiful bike. The Gates Carbon Drive belt-drive system is so clean and smooth, and Bike Friday makes a great bike. I was keen on the Tern Verge S27h, however, because it seemed a little more cost-effective, and I wanted to try out something I could order from a local bike shop.

The Tern Verge S27h comes in any color you want so long as it is black, and it is one of Tern’s few cycle-touring oriented bikes. For under US$2,000 (in Japan), you get a bike with dual racks, full dynamo lighting system, a long-wheelbase frame, Rholoff-ready drop-outs, eccentric bottom bracket, an in-seat-tube floor pump, Avid BB7 disk brakes, and a Sram Dual-Drive drivetrain (consists of a 9-speed cassette mounted to a three-speed DD3 internal gear hub). The fold is very neat too.

Even before I took delivery of the bike, I had intended to more or less immediately swap out the Dual Drive drivetrain for an Alfine 11-speed internal gear hub. I abhor derailleur drive trains. I find internal gear hubs are cleaner, and just less hassle. The rim I wanted to use for the new wheel didn’t arrive in time for the bike, so I’m still waiting to build a new back wheel up, but that will happen in due course. The adjustable eccentric bottom bracket means an internal gear hub can be fitted without the need for a chain tensioner.

As it is though, the Dual Drive drivetrain is nice enough: the changes are solid and reliable. I don’t really feel like I need 27 gears though…

I’ve also swapped out the stock standard saddle with a spare leather Selle Anatomica saddle I had sitting around…I like my leather saddles. The stock saddle felt comfy enough on the 15 minute bike ride home from the bike shop, but on a longer tour, who knows.

The headlight gives a very nice strong light, but I feel like it shines too much in a concentrated beam, with too little light directly in front of the front wheel. Compared with the Busch and Muller Lumotec IQ Cyo that I have on my big bike, which gives a more even beam from close to far, the Tern light falls short in this regard.

Initial ride impressions is that this is one very solid bike. At 16kg, it really is a solid bike (especially for one with 20-inch wheels). Once I had the seat height tweaked and the (very nicely adjustable) quick-adjust stem adjusted right, it felt like a very nice geometry. I am 179.5cm tall (around 5’11), and the bike feels just about right. It is not a custom fit like you’d get with a Bike Friday, but for the last few days I’ve been enjoying the fit so far.

I’m currently running Schwalbe Marathon Winter (20×1.6) tires on the bike for winter here, but the bike comes stock with Schwalbe Big Apples (20×2.0). Those Big Apples are going to be very nice to ride once the snow leaves (in about three months time).

2015 Tern Verge S27h folding touring bicycle on winter snow (Muroran City, Japan)

The long chain-stays on the bike mean that heel-strike is not an issue. I wear a size 11.5 winter boot, and my panniers were always out of the way of my heels.

There are a couple of inexplicable niggles about the bike though. One is the fact that there are no bottle-cage mount braze-ons on the top-tube. All of Tern’s other bikes have these braze-ons. Why on earth does Tern’s only bicycle marketed as a serious tourer not have these?! (UPDATE 2015/5/25: See the bike’s designer Thomas from Velowerk explain the reasoning in the comments). Also, my Ortlieb panniers, when mounted on the lower rails of the (excellently stiff rack) hit the Dual-Drive shifting mechanism, which causes the gears to skip. Not ideal. (UPDATE 2015/5/25: See the bike’s designer Thomas from Velowerk comments about that below.)

Overall though, the bike seems to do it’s job. Lined up with the Bike Friday Silk I can’t help but feel that the Bike Friday is a more mature design and finished product, but I do feel like the Verge S27h has potential. Potential that we hope to put through its paces in the coming years.
