The Odachi folding bike is an eco-friendly transportation alternative designed for modern-day samurais. This unique bike was designed by Nick Domanski and is inspired by the samurai sword of the same name.

The Odachi folding bike is made out of bamboo and fiberboard making it both lightweight and strong. The bike can be folded and transported in two ways -- you can either drag it behind you like a regular schmo, or you can sling it across your back like an awesome samurai cyclist.

The Internet and more or less the world in general has a huge love affair with ninjas. That same love is also shared with samurais. The samurai-inspired Odachi folding bike could very well attract a large audience with its unique look and undeniably bad arse origins. Stats for Bushido Concpet Bicycles Trending: Older & Average
