I'd be much more impressed if it folded flat. I don't really like riding with a parachute behind me...

I like the idea. In practice, I have a hard time imagining this as being easier to carry than a small tent. It does look like it would catch the wind. Still, I'm always interested in another take on the bike trailer camper.

The company also has designs for some folding boats that can be pulled behind the bike. I've been lusting after an Alpacka for some bike and boating trips, but there designs are pretty, and possibly cheaper than the Alpacka. But, again, not quite as compact.

Not a bad idea, but I would like one that folds down. It would appear that if you had a strong cross wind you might find yourself and your bike dangling from a kite . So you stop for the night and wake up in the morning to find your Brommie gone. Now if they had one that would unfold with enough room for the Brommie as well.
