A 5kw generator (in the box), but I don't have pics.
Wait, isn't a 5kW generator called a REX?
So am I mistaken? I didn't find many posts regarding "bikes" or "bicycles" searching this forum, so surely I'm not looking hard enough.
Today I rode my folding Xootr Swift to pick up my i3 from service. The Swift has 20" wheels and isn't a compact folder like a Dahon or Brompton, but I was nevertheless surprised how much space it took up. Upon arriving home, I took a few pictures, of it laying down, of it standing up, and for comparison, I stuffed a "regular" bicycle in to see how well it fit.
The normal-sized bike in the photos is a "large" 19" frame with 700x40c rubber, so equivalent to a fat tired road bike or gravel bike. These are larger diameter wheels (+tires) than most anything other than a 29" mountain bike. The wheelbase is a longish 1125mm -- in between many road bikes (shorter) and mountain bikes (longer) of similar sized-frames. With the front passenger seat forward and the seatback upright, this bike barely fit -- the wide "mountain bike style" flat bars had the grip just touching the rear glass when I closed the hatch. Point being, I think most road bikes and 27.5 or 26" mountain bikes ought to fit -- laying like this -- with a little more room, but large-framed 29" mountain bikes will probably pose a problem.
(...and yes, lowering the seatpost, loosening / offsetting the stem, and removing the rear wheel would of course all help the cause!)
