    Default It's a tripod, it's a bike, it's a tripod bike..

    Saw this on CNet's FB posting. Looks like a cool concept. It's a bike and a tripod.

    interesting love the bike design but wouldnt a regular ah-pek rear goods rack and a 2 sided lift-up stand do the same job ?

    this one more style..

    those ah pek bikes need to zng in order to hold your camera..

    actually come to think of it, this might have stemmed from the ah pek bikes? my late grand dad used to have 1..

    oh ye.. true true.. may not be able to handle my weight. But i like the idea that it can be folded and carried onto the trains and buses. After alighting, this can again be used to cycle to the destination. Good for recce while you are onsite too. Can look at LCD and frame while you cycle.

    But how you see your VF or LCD?

    look at the pic again ..... its a 'slider' rather than a folder ...... seems like drum brake and belt-driven too instead of chain

    this is just a concept rendering.
    The only unique feature I see is the sliding for height adjustment.
    The use of it as a camera holder seems random with an add on bicycle stand that does not seem to be really stable.

    There another similar looking bicycle, a real folding bicycle that has been selling for many already. It is belt drive and comes with brake disc and hub gear.

    If you don't want to spend too much money you can try this for $6.

    I think any bike with rear kickstand with a Gorillapod mangled/secured onto the front/rear does the same thing.

    Interesting idea, but cheapo me wouldn't pay for it

    probably you might be interested in a similar looking foldable bicycle that you can buy now.
