Bike Of The Week

You’ve seen bicycles made for one, and have heard that some are built for two.  But three?

The Kid Mobile

This week’s bike (or should I say trike) is purpose-made for hauling.  It is actually an industrial unit designed for moving parts around on factory floors, and adapted to kid mover by the addition of lights and a bell.  It sports an internally geared rear hub with a drum brake.  Note the neatly tied double cables from each hand grip/brake lever assembly.  I’m guessing there is another set of gears and brakes under the kinderbasket.

Weighing about 60 lb. without cargo, this bike needs relatively flat terrain and a committed rider to get around, both of which are plentiful in the tri-border region!
