The amazing Impossible folding bike

The folding bicycle concept There are currently quite a number of manufacturers and startups developing folding bicycles, and it's an idea that makes a lot of sense: a bike that you can fold up and stow away under your desk means you don't have to look for an outside parking rack or worry about your cycle getting stolen while you're busy inside. It also means you can make journeys using multiple modes of transport more easily — car and bike, train and bike, and so on. Few folding bicycles are quite as compact as the Impossible bike though, which has just appeared on Kickstarter and can fit in a standard-sized backpack.
