Greetings from Apple


Last summer Larry and Harry had a visit from the States.His name was Apple and he had saved just enough money to visit Copenhagen and to buy a Bluebird´71.Yesterday Harry received a mail from Apple and it went like this:

"I love my Bullitt. I ride it much more than I expected. It has become my main bicycle. I hardly ever ride the other two. I ride it to work everyday which is about 19 miles round trip. While it is good for hauling groceries and my girlfriend, I really like that the bike makes me relax. The first few weeks I was riding it fast. Working hard to run about 15 mph. I realized that I can take it easy and enjoy the bike and the ride much more at 12mph. So the bike is helping me to be relaxed when I get to work.

Here in Indianapolis (not Minneapolis) there are no other cargo bikes around. People stare and ask questions all the time. Often guys in truck and rednecks have a bad attitude towards bicycles. The funny thing is those same guys love this bike. I have walked out of a shop and had construction workers come over to look at the bike. The guys in trucks seem to understand the bike better than most people who ride bikes. Other times I will pass someone and I can tell by their facial expression that they just realized that a bicycle can do far more than they ever expected. It's fun for me to watch people's reaction."

Larry and Harry surely loves Apples!
