USPS Bike


While vacationing in St.Petersburg Florida, we met a very nice Postman who uses a delivery bicycle. That square frame on the front wheel is the kick stand... because all the weight is on the front. Great bike, great guy too.... he said people talk to him about the bike all the time.

Thought the commuting forum might like this photo.
