Holy ‘Bergmönch’ bikes! This brilliant and obviously well-made backpack bike is bound for outdoor greatness. The folding bicycle, whose name translates into ‘mountain monk,’ packs up neatly into a small, lightweight package that is easily carried on the back.

Enthusiasts can hike up a mountain in the morning, have lunch, quickly assemble their Bergmönch and kick it down any terrain thrown at them.

"The bike offers different sized wheel options to manage the steeper terrain, an innovative foldable suspension fork for easier carrying, a damped rear for increased comfort and safety, a hydraulic disc brake system, and ample storage space in the 12-liter backpack," according to Greenmuze.
