Rotate the hand- lebars clockwise far enough that the front wheel sits parallel to the frame. Loosen the quick-release lever on the handlebar stem, pull the handlebar unit upwards from the tube and lay it flat on the frame.
Loosen the quick-release lever on the lower seatposts and pull the seat tubes upwards and completely out. Follow the same procedure with the rear rider‘s handlebars.
Lift your BERNDS-Folding Tandem slightly off the ground by the top tube and stand on the rear sub-frame or the rear axle so that the suspension unit comes loose from the catch. Swing the rear sub-frame inwards until the tyre is resting against the lower frame tube.
Note: with derailleur gears (and Dual Drive), you should put it into one of the top three gears (the ones with the larger sprocket diameter) before swinging in the rear sub-frame; this will prevent the chain coming off.
