    How to flatten/compress evoc bag

    hey all!
    just bought a second hand evoc bag
    I am wondering how to flatten it like in the attached photo!
    i am removed the four flat sticks front and rear of the bag and the four round sticks for the wheels
    I am just unsure as how to fold it so that it is as compact as possible for storage
    any assistance would be much appreciated!

    Seriously? Try folding it until you get the results you are looking for instead of wanting it spoon fed to you.

    not sure what you value money, but here in aus the bag is around AUD$600
    would prefer not to fk it up and cause irreversible damage by 'giving it a go'
    i have already tried and did not particularly want to go through the brute force method

    thanks for your wealth of knowledge though, it has not helped me at all

    as a side note i rarely post queries online unless i have exhausted searching online and giving it a go just so i can avoid helpful people like yourself

    this post was a last ditch option
    cheers

    Did you ever manage to figure it out? I was searching for the same information and this was one of the top hits and all I got out of it was why I could never stay on the MTBR forums for very long.

    I think I got it close, take the slimmer side where it opens, fold that in on itself - the reinforcement in the center of the wheel doesn't fold well so kinda fold the part above that down onto it and then fold that down inside. Then take the other side with the sides attached and kinda fold that down as best as possible. Doesn't look _quite_ as neat as the photo, but it's at least close.

    Actually, looking at the photo again, I think the concept is the same but it looks like they ended with the thin side over the other side. Not terribly difficult but agreed that it would have been nice to have that in the user's manual.

    Hopefully this reply helps someone else in the future, as opposed to all the other replies.
