Bike that lets you Low-Ride or High-Ride on the Go!

Here’s an awesome design for a bike that will let the rider “low-ride” or “high-ride” while ridin’.  What a great concept, I can envision future bikes coming like this.

It’s a mind exercise that can possibly help you do more stuff in less time.

Now let me begin by saying that I used to work from 6am to 12am in Korea when I used to work at Comfile. (That’s 6am until midnight, 18 hours of work)
