How to Fold the Tern Castro, Eclipse, Link, Node & Verge
This article refers to Castro, Eclipse, Link, Node and Verge bikes (except Link A7, B7, C3i, C7, C7i and eLink).
The Tern fold is simple and elegant. With a little bit of practice, it will feel like second nature, or, if you prefer, as intuitive as riding a bicycle
Folding Your Bike
For a more compact folded package, fold or remove your Pedals before Step #2.
You can also get a smaller folded package by positioning your Handlebar Stem upright, before Step #5.
Don’t over-tighten the Handlepost Strap, or you might weaken the magnetic bond in the Magnetix™ 2.0 Clip System.
If you own a Verge X18, X30h, Duo or Link Uno, you should not use the N-Fold. Instead, turn the Handlebars 180° and fold in half.
Unfolding Your Bike
To disengage the Magnetix™ 2.0 Clip System, give the Handlebar a quick turn to the left after you’ve closed the Handlepost Lever.
Your Seatpost has minimum and maximum insertion point markings. For safety reasons, make sure your Seatpost is inserted within this range.
