The Makers of This Folding Bike Claim It's the Lightest One Ever

The creators of the Hummingbird folding bike claim that the idea came to them when they were looking for a folding bike that weighed less than 12 kilograms, and couldn't find one, so they decided to make their own that weighs nearly half that. The resulting Hummingbird is a minuscule 6.5 kilograms—less than a single watermelon—and is so light that even a child can pick it up. (No, that's not the inventor in the above picture.)
