The Mountain Monk - The Folding Mountain Bike Designed To Be Carried As A Regular Backpack

Built in the same spirit as the Mantague Paratrooper Folding Bike, the Mountain Monk allows easy storage and easy back transportation where the terrain does not allow you to ride it.

The bike system ingeniously folds and transforms into a compact backpack which allows mountaineers to climb, walk and hike their way and freely use their both hands for other activities. The Mountain Monk not only speeds your downhill, built also pretects your health from knee, hips, shoulders and other muscle injuries.
While walking downhill, our joints have to cope with several times the amount of our own weight – the legs have to slow down the downhill movement of the body with every step. And everybody knows the consequences: tired muscles and aching knees. Walking safely is not guaranteed anymore.[…] Studies show that 67% of all mountaineers have knee troubles, followed by injured ankles, hips, shoulders or even damages to the spinal column. Taking the “Bergmönch” with you, solves these problems, as you wheel downhill, taking care of your joints.” [extracted from the Mountain Monk press-release].

Let me hear your comments below. What are your thoughts in regards of the Mountain Monk foldable bike concept? Would you use one for your downhills or you’d prefer walking your way down when mountaineering?

Moveo - The Folding Electric Scooter That Helps You Say Bye-Bye To Pollution And Wasted Time Finding Parking Spaces - Folded, Unfolded

With traffic going crazier and crazier in all the big cities around the world, more and more people are moving over to lighter and smaller transportation vehicles. Bikes, scooters and light motorcycles are the most common choices when it comes to finding a reasonable car-alternative.

The Hungarian based Antro Group has a nice proposition for commuters looking for a simple, economical and eco-friendly locomotion alternative – The Electric Foldable Scooter. Weighting only 55 ponds (that’s about 25 KG), the Moveo Scooter can develop a speed up to 28 mph (that’s about 45 kmh for our European readers) and it takes up to two minutes to fold or unfold. Once folded, the Moveo takes as much space as a bigger size roller case and can be transported in any place.

The Moveo Electric Scooter will reach the consumer markets soon with an estimated resale price of around $3,000 to $5,000 US.
