    Ah yes. A Stanhope. Some would fold back quite nicely and be innocuous. Should be fairly ugly to steer on rough terrain – cobbles, potholes and streetcar tracks, not to mention biomass.
    There was a similar device used for delivering groceries when we were in Sweden. I believe it was hinged behind the front wheels. Heroically driven by young squids.
