Commercial utility bikes (pic of one!)
 
1 Attachment(s)
i'm not seeing many pics featuring commercial utilities on the street, but i saw one today.
denver public library has at least one bookmobike (i made that up and made myself snort).
this one was en route to the new belgium brewery tour de fat (fat tire ale) as a promo.

this guy takes returns and has books to check out. i'm gonna see whether i can score a part-time position doing that. when i make the contact i'll try to score some more pics- open, better pic of the writing, etc.

let's stretch the name:

bibliofiets
bibliofahrrad
bibliovelo

there's another similar setup selling cupcakes in my 'hood. had no cam on me at the time.


sept 14: checked at the lib and they only have the one unit, boohoo. in addition to checking books in 'n' out it has a wifi setup so folks can hang around it wifi-ing.

Looks like it might be a Worksman chassis. I can remember way back when:50:... the USPS had bikes for delivering the mail. And I had a paper route and delivered papers to people's doorsteps with a bike. Ancient history, but making a comeback?

I also delivered newspapers by bike from 1959-1962 door to door as well as sometimes using a wagon for Sunday papers.
Newspaper delivery to the door may soon become ancient history, if not newspapers themselves.
