Distinctive and unusual bike shop

I did a search and didn't see anything mentioned about this so...

While recently in Chicago, a stumbled into a shop that only sells cargo and city bikes. Their bikes are distinctive and unusual to say the least. I just love the look of their Vanmoof No. 3 city bike with front and rear lights integrated into the top tube. The child carriers were pretty interesting too.

BTW...I'm not from Illinois nor do I have an affiliation with J. C. Lind.

Take a look at: www.jclindbikes.com

Pretty cool, although it's not really the kind of this a 15 year old boy wants

One of those looked a little like those ice cream carts you see in spain...
