Traversing a vast hill can be great exercise, but the descending can be a knee numbing experience. The Bergmönch is a folding bike that easily converts into a backpack. There’s no pedals, so this sucker is built for the down hill adrenaline junky. It weighs a total of 21lbs – which isn’t exactly light – and features disc brakes, some sort of front shock and a storage compartment that can hold up to 12 liters of stuff.

I can’t find a price, but I assume it’s currently available for purchase.
