The Paratrooper offers 24 speeds, front suspension, mechanical disc brakes, and the RackStand for hauling gear. Tackle any terrain, carry your gear, and fold to stash in your trunk. (or plane :)

The Paratrooper is equipped with mechanicaldisc brakes. They offer quicker response, morestopping power, and better performance inwet weather than rim brakes.
An SR Suntour suspension fork allows theParatrooper to glide over the obstacles,roots, and rocks of off-road trails.
That’s quite a deal, if I hadn’t baught a couple Montagues last year I would be all over it.
Do you know about what height might fit to each of the bikes? I am 5'7" and have not purchased a bike in many years but would like one for the airport and plane.
Did you sell your Bikes?
Does anyone know if these folded bike will fit in the baggage door of a G3 SR20, or must they be loaded in the back seat?
It is biking season, and those look great.
I miss Scott Prinz, never meets a stranger.
But you may get a faster answer to our question by asking his wife, as we don't see much of Scott in these parts any more.
They included her email address up above.
As far as loading them in a G3 SR20 (or 22), removing the back seat pin and folding down one of the back seats is a 20 second process, and you can easily load them that way, the replace the pin for the seat.
Loading them into an Extra 400 looks like a breeze, and you can follow them with 10 more bikes, various Veterans, a few family members, snacks for all- I'd get spoiled!

I emailed them as well as posting here.
He replied. Great guy.They sold the bikes.
We are looking at folding bikes to use on a veterans trip.
We love our Cirrus, But you are right about the Extra. It is a lot easier getting people in the step door.
Well, that was mostly me. My good friend is looking at one, so I put him on to Tim, who is the commander i chief in that world.
It made me look at them harder, too...and they look good. Not too many made, and they fit a small niche in the market, but very capable planes. Perhaps some early troubles hurt them, but I like them.
It also resulted in me realizing, for the first time, that EXTRA isn't just a descriptor of excellence- It is the name of the maker.

Everyone needs a Cirrus and an " Extra" plane. :)
