    The ultimate solution to carrying a folding bike on the train

    I don't know where he found it but my boss forwarded this to me. It almost looks like it could work.

    might look like but i don't think it's a possibility. just think about all those metals sticking in your body (ouchhhh). but kudos to the person for his forward thinking...

    Other uses:
    doubles as a flack jacket.
    Has an inflatable bladder and becomes a sumo suit for those impromptu Metro Train parties.
    Avoids that awkward "I haven't seen you in a long time and I forgot your name" thing by clearly identifying you as Fred!

    This is good one.
    I don't like the olive-green colour, though.

    How about an inflatable bicycle that doubles as a pillow on the train (and as a raft, if you encounter a flood)?

    In some parts of the world, this will be mistaken for a suicide bomber vest.

    Agreed.

    It looks hot and bulky too. What do you do when it's time to ride and you have to carry that hot heavy bulky jacket in 90 degree weather?
