Eric Stoddard's Zoomla is a folding bike with a built-in backpack that is small enough to fit in a school locker once it's broken down. Stoddard says the bike folds up in 2 seconds flat.

The Zoomla bicycle is driven by levers and uses small wheels for its compact design. Eric was the designer of the Trik-E concept bike that we previously featured.
