It is a fast folder, but it doesn't fold as compactly as the Brompton
does as fast. However it will easily fit into the trunk of a car with
a few seconds of folding.
It doesn't do anything special to try and stay especially clean (like
how the Brompton folds the chain into the center of the bike).
If you post where you live there might be a list member nearby who
could show you a NWT in person. Seeing how it folds will probably
answer your questions a lot faster than text on this mailing list.
