Sounding like a bit of a contradiction, the Sada Bike is a bicycle that can be folded down to the point it can be carried in a backpack. The bicycle was designed by Italian-based Gianluca Sada.

The idea of a folding bike has undertaken numerous studies that focus on reducing the weight and dimensions which have led, however, to realize too small sized bicycles. They have a small frame and wheels at the expense of stability, for the sake of compactness and portability during transport. The minimum size of the frame, in fact, penalizes the rider position while driving and the small size of the wheels significantly are affected by variations in terrain. On the other hand, the traditional bicycles, avoid these problems, but the rigid chassis makes them inflexible during transport on public transport.
