Swiss Army Bicycle (Militarvelo)

Weighing in at more than 50 lbs, the Swiss Army Bicycle is the furthest away you can get from Lance Armstrong’s 16 pound Trek Madone 6.9 However, with its elegant simplicity, utility, and low maintenance design, the Swiss Army Bike had what it took to keep the Swiss Army chugging along for almost a century. Although it was phased out by the Swiss military in 2001, if you’re lucky, you can spot some of these bicycles on eBay going for a pretty penny.

    Just so: it’s Militär, not Militar… ;-) If you don’t have the “ä”, just use “ae”…
    Cheers!

    Undeniably believe that which you said. Your favorite justification
    seemed to be on the web the easiest thing to be aware of.
    I say to you, I definitely get irked while people consider worries that they
    plainly don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined
    out the whole thing without having side effect , people could take a signal.
    Will likely be back to get more. Thanks
