Folding Bikes - Der Bergmönch: folding mountain scooter
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
Thought someone here might be interested in this.
Very interesting! The fork looks like the one on the new Jetstream.

Very interesting indeed. Somehow reminds me a BMX.

Haha - brilliant. I dare someone to put kiddy knobbleys on a Brompton and try that... :)

Interesting idea, but no chain, pedals or even a seat? :-/ You just get to the top of a hill (carrying what must weigh a lot more than a standard backpack) and roll down? Hmmm...
[edit: well, I guess it *is* a scooter...]

Am I missing something or does this thing only coast downhill? I like the video but I didn't see the monk ride off across the floor at the end. The sanctuary would need a sloping floor for that I suppose.

I think its more a free downhill racer folder. The idea is you can portage it up the hill, assemble it and blast down. Its a lot of fun doing that on a small bike!

I'm sure that couple in the video did not ride down the same route they climbed up over. If I were into this sort of riding I'd have taken the chairlift.
I just love innovation and design of all sorts! :)
This one's not for me... but I can see it being enjoyed by others in the right places and conditions. Good on them, I say!
