This Grasshopper Folds and Generates Electricity

Grasshopper is a foldable electric bicycle that turns into a trolley for easy transport. The use of composite materials provide rigidity and strength. The aim of the design is to satisfy those who like to bicycle in normal everyday life but live in places/cities where the configuration of the terrain is too severe (cough: hills). The target market is mainly composed of active people with environmental concerns and health concerns who live in urban centres, plus people who live nomadic lifestyles.

The  battery charges thru regenerative braking and thru stationary bicycling. Yes you read right, this bike can turn into a stationary exercise bike. Designer David Goncalves entered his design in the 2008 12th International Bicycle Design Competition winning a Merit Prize.
