Yep, this is real, and not an example of chindogu.

A well, interesting and ingenious, gadget, this - a bike that turns into a tent kinda sounds like a good space saving idea if you're into cycling holidays and camping both. But I gotta say that you wouldn't get me using one... not unless someone else does the pedalling away while I snooze in the tent! (Not into camping holidays, me, not when there are comfortable hotels available - and as for exercise through lots of hard cycling, well eeeek.) I wonder how many of those they've actually sold?

This is a great idea! Do you know what I really like about it: they've shown it in use with a real mountain bike and not some piece of junk.

I'd like to know if it would stay up without the bike there however...

According to the Topeak web site, it won't stay up at all without the bike; the bike (and the front wheel on the other end) take the place of the poles which would hold up a traditional tent.

Hmm that's interesting to know, and not surprising. Gotta say, better someone else than me to try that out! :D
