You can get a smaller folded package by positioning the Brake Levers upright, before Step #2, so that the Brake Levers point upwards.

Don’t over-tighten the Handlepost Strap, or you might weaken the magnetic bond in the Magnetix™ 2.0 Clip System.
Unfolding Your Bike

Your Seatpost has minimum and maximum insertion point markings. For safety reasons, make sure your Seatpost is inserted within this range.
