Downhill bicycle, or so it is called. But Bergmönch backpack scooter is a surprise. It is supposed to be called a scooter apparently, because unlike the conventional bicycles, it has no pedals. The vehicle having a bigger wheel on its front and smaller one on its back, uniquely folds up once you are done with moving downhill.
What is interesting is that this scooter, bicycle or downhill wheeler can be packed into your backpack for your trek uphill or journey elsewhere. Is that not a better choice to a really tough bet on bicycling uphill? Considering it works only on downslopes, when you reach a plain while downhill you may need to fold it back into your backpack, and for the smoother terrain, you can kneel when you ride down.
The bike is custom-made for rough terrains, has an aluminium frame, full suspension, triple-hardened tubes, adjustable air shocks and disc brakes. With this, you can store your other things in the backpack too.
The bicycle comes at € 1,499 or around $2,300. It is certainly a worth-buy thing in case you are an avid traveler with a penchant for downhill rides.
