Aye, a resounding “Wha~waaaaa~” for the folding velocipede! Please re-title “Folding Velocipede Backpack is antiquarian cross-country dream” lest more of us be tricked into getting excited for naught.
nobody’s asking why the hell anyone would want to carry their bike in the countryside. ride it!
folding bikes are for cramped commuter trains.
Wouldn’t people have to be in better shape to lug around a backpackable Segway?
I guess it’s easier to marvel at a bike with no pedals if you don’t actually use a bike in your daily routine.
I love folding stuff–especially my folding bicycle. But what a letdown. This is a folding scooter; no pedals or pedaling even if you wanted to.
Not really a **cross country** dream, seeing as how the bikes have no *seat* or *peadals*.
These are strictly folding down hill scooters with big wheels. The seem very cool until you find out they have no drive train or anywhere to sit down.
#1, yeah, that was a big letdown – I was all excited until then!

Cool, but still not as cool as the Robotech Cyclone armor.
