Bergmoench Backpack Bike – For hiking and biking

bergmoenchbike

The Bergmönch Backpack Bike lets you hike up the hill carrying your bike, easily. The lightweight bike folds up into the integrated backpack allowing you to get up the hill the shortest way while the backpack has plenty of space for your bits and pieces.

The bike is no slouch either, with a hand built aluminium frame, adjustable shocks on the front fork and Shimano SLX disc brakes, all for a combined weight of 9kg. Oh and there’s no seat or pedals, just foot pegs. The makers reckon you can unfold it in 2 minutes and if you need to you can kneel on the back of the backpack as you ride down, otherwise stand up and bounce your way down. Too much fun and it’s just €1,499.

An integrated system of rucksack and scooter. Uphill you can climb unrestricted with free hands and senses in touch with nature, then swoosh back down to valley level either standing or kneeling. If the terrain is really rough, you can stand on the Bergmönch with your weight well back. Otherwise you can ride kneeling, with relaxed muscles for the descent.

  • I love this bike/backpack. I can see how I can actually get some serious biking in with my little brother in tow. He could have all the goodies he thinks he has to have along and I could ride, ride, ride.

  • So this back pack bike have no seat? Not nice because when u are tired u will my want to seat and pedal a little bit. It has no seat because one wheel is bigger than the other one and u can seat strait. Also I so the video and it’s not that easy to assebly.
