Gone with the Schwinn

While there had been doubts about whether this briefcase bicycle would ever go into production, Treehugger's reporting that thing should be on the market in the US by next year. Since I, for one, am always thrilled to see even more goofy vehicles on sidewalks (go Segways!), I'm thoroughly applauding the Chinese company's decision. Sadly, however, going green will cost you: the bike's slated to sell for $399, meaning it's much easier on the environment than your wallet (or your rear, judging by the seat). Link via ThisNext.
