Bike Pack: bike that folds into a backpack

Andy Tioh, an Industrial Design student at Humber College, believes that current bikes are so “intrusive and impractical” that they are forcing commuters to revert back to using their gas guzzling cars. His solution? The Bike Pack. The Bike Pack is a very modern looking foldable bike concept that has a trick up its sleeve: its folds into a backpack (sort of). The concept allows users to easily commute freely and allows them to unfold the bike from their backs only when appropriate. Economical and convenient indeed.

However, it should be noted that the Bike Pack doesn’t exactly turn into a backpack. Instead, the bike folds somewhat flat and a separate backpack is attached to the folded bike for the final look. Furthermore, the Bike Pack’s weight is unknown, so it is not sure how comfortable the bike will be on a commuter’s back. I’m a little worried about its look, though. Sure it is modern and practical in design, but it does look rather…umm…odd. What’s up with the small dinky wheels? But, I digress…

The Bike Pack is currently only a concept; production of the Bike Pack is unknown.
