What about Downtube? A little pricey but it has a belt drive and 8 gears. The dimensions seem like it would fit in my 6 but I have not pulled the trigger either.

Default Folding Electric Bicycle

I have a 2015 RV-12 SLSA and I'm thinking about purchasing a high end Tern S10 folding electric bicycle which weighs 50 lbs. If the bike fits I'll carry the battery in front but I haven't measured the RV-12 yet. The Tern S10 folds down to 15" x 32" x 30" so I'll measure the area this week sometime but I think it will fit. Anyone else carrying a folding electric bicycle in their RV-12?
