Foldable Bicycle
I usually see people post bicycles in most survival games but rarely do I see foldable bicycles. They have civilian models and they are also used by the military. Like bicycles they would provide quick and quite transportation without the need for fuel at the expense of protection and carrying capacity, but you would be able to fold and easily store the bicycle in storage or in a vehicle for use as stealth transport. There are multiple models they could add into the game the Montague Paratrooper is my favorite style foldable bike. They would have to be much rarer then the standard bicycles but finding one would be well worth it.

Well tell me what you guys think, its a simple idea but I think they work well with survival games. Read, Write, Review and feel free to leave any suggestions and I'll get back to you.

Finally one of your posts that don't require a lot of reading XD. I like the idea of bicycles I don't see why we couldn't make some foldable while we were at it. Although have they even confirmed if they were going to add regular bicycles? I ask because I wonder how the physics will work with these, seeing DayZ's bikes and what you can do with them. While it's fun to ride down a mountain going 60 mph and slam into a tree and walk away, its kind of crushes the whole realism thing. Although back to your suggestion in specific, If there are going to be bicycles and making foldable bikes wouldn't be to hard to do, I say heck yes!

Love it. A friend of mine owned a foldable bike, which was MUCH easier to transport than my non-folding 29er mountain bike, even after taking the front wheel off.

In her Nest.
Only half of train using Netherlands has fold-able bicycles. It's a great idea (I'd personally spawn these near train stations but you can spawn em everywhere) especially because they're lighter and make the variation of bicycles and places where you can find them easier. (I mean who finds a bicycle inside a locker for example? You could with those fold-able ones)

I can imagine it working like you pack the bike into your backpack.
They don't pack that small, but I could definitely see slinging one over your shoulder.
