    It looks like it might be another year before we get some more super chargers in Wyoming. My current plan is to use RV parks to make it out of the state on long trips. I could plugin to a 50amp 240 for an hour or two and take a bike ride. I was looking at the threads on folding bikes and and how the D frunk is abit smaller. So do you think there are any folding bikes that would still fit in the D's frunk?

    39" Wide x 17", by 9" high. That's at the widest point, it narrows towards the front obviously.

    I don't think you'll find anything that could be considered a "bike" that will fit. The wheels of a 16" bike would barely fit, much less the rest of the bike. Folded dimensions are always bigger than the wheel size. You could remove the wheels, but then it would not be as compact and the frunk would not have enough depth to hold it.

    Maybe try a 16" unicycle? :wink:

    FYI, a Brompton is 23" x 21.5" x 10.6" when folded.

    So, the Brompton does not fit, is that what you are suggesting?

    The D lost not only the microwave but 1/3 of the main frunk area as well.

    I have an 85D and two Citizen Gotham folding bikes and they definitely will NOT fit in the frunk. However, lots of room in the back and I can get both of them plus camping gear, etc. in the back.
