    That delivery is about as cool as a “working” bike gets. I remember another paper boy when I was a kid and had a route as well having an all black model. Th kick stand droped down under the whole front wheel. Great for the Michigan winter paper route especially Sunday with comics. Skip

    I agree. I’d love to have that bike. The small wheel with the frame mounted rack is such a great solution for carrying weight on the front of a bike.
