Bergmönch, the Bicycle that Folds into a Rucksack

Bergmonch folding bike for mountain hike PHOTO

For all of you who love riding a bike downhill but prefer to walk uphill, here is a revolutionary new bicycle design that fits in a rucksack! It is actually meant for going mountain hiking uphill, and then wheeling downhill. The name of this new invention is Bergmönch, which means "mountain monk" in German. Check out the video below, about the monk riding a Bergmönch, and the image of the folded out bicycle.

The whole bike with integrated helmet fits into a rucksack with an additional 12 Litre space for gear and food, and weights 9,5kg. Walking and cycling are definitely the most sustainable transportation methods, so with this folding bike you can enjoy the best of both. On the way up, you wear the bike as a rucksack, keeping your hands free. The best part of this however is going downhill after having folded this small, well-engineered bicycle into the bike you need to go down rough tracks. Let's hope the breaks make up for the "missing" pedals and gears. Thank you Sergio S. for the tip! ::Bergmönch
