Bicycle in a suitcase - Bah!

http://www.roadraceengineering.com/suitcasecar.htm

This is America dammit, we don't need no (non)stinking bicycles.

Soon the sidewalks will be as clogged as the highways.

I'd love to hear someone's explanation to Homeland Security officers when they open this case at the airport. "Officer, it's just my car - honest. If it's a problem, I'll put the gasoline in a zip-lock bag..."

But people love to have fun. To ride a Cart? is fun for most people.
Racing is a big sport. Worldwide contests going on so maybe me naive.
those who love motors would love to toy around on the parking lot
with such toys. To make a bike that fit inside a suitcase is a practical
thing even for those who would never use a motor to travel.

Some transportation don't allow pedal bikes cause the chain grease peoples
clothes and the transportation company get sued so they forbid them unless
they are covered. And a suitcase protect the bike better from hanling damage
than a sack would so a bike in a suitcase could be the only way to travel from
a to b.

I don't mind if you see me as a spoiler of the fun.

Evidently an actual suitcase bike has gotten the green light.

BTW, did you notice the Mazda suitcase car had rear tail lights.

I'll bet Victorinox has a secret bike under development that includes multiple blades and saws.

Rear tail lights? What happened to the seat belt and air bags?
