Paratrooper Bike

Saw this and thought of the space conscious SMBers, especially those who like to keep two wheels for emergencies:

Re: Paratrooper Bike

Nice. The weight seems conspicuously absent though. Or am I just overlooking it?

Hopefully it's inversely proportional to the price of $800.

Re: Paratrooper Bike

Very cool!

According to reviews, the 18" frame weighs 29lbs. A slightly-cheaper Raleigh mountain bike (the Mojave 8.0) weighs about the same (29lbs for a 16" frame).

I test drove a electric version of that mountain bike. A bit more expensive but it really climbs steep hills well. The Bionx system is a bit expensive but very functional and fun to ride.
