Bergmönch, Hiking Up and Wheeling Down


Bergmönch is an interesting idea! Now you can climb a mountain with a backpack, and then unfold the backpack into a scooter of sorts so you can wheel your way down. The question: is a speedier descent worth carrying the extra weight up? - via artsyspot

You've seen Pirates of the Caribbean have'nt you? I agree with whitcwa The hamster ball is the best way to go downhill. Everything else hurts.

My knees are such that this sort of thing may be my only way of continuing my passion for backpacking. I can go up and up and up, but a half hour downhill and my knees send bolts of pain through my body like no other.

I am a gear weight freak; but this may soon be my only option.

Those look like bicycles, not scooters, and it isn't new. It would be Neatorama-worthy if they used pogo sticks or giant hamster balls to go downhill.
