This has to be a joke. But, I'm afraid that it's not.

I give you The Vanmoof Boncho.



Note: If your bike don't got no fenders, you're gonna get wet, anyway. And it'll be a dirty kind of wet.

A decent idea, that should've stayed an idea.

Yeah but it's water repellant AND water proof, so all that dirty water from the wheels will only soak you from the neck down. Even after a surprise shower, you'll arrive at Mr DeMille's ready for your close up.

You're right, of course. But the bike in the vid *does* have fenders, full fenders, and close to the tires, not those flat visor-y types.

I liked the light in the front end of the top tube.

I visited BD the other day and saw a couple interesting bikes during my visit. The first one was parked on the ferry, still decked out in its holiday costume. It looks like the pickup truck version of a bike. The second one was parked downtown where we were walking. Surly, indeed. Love the melon cover, by the way.

I got to ride one of those fat boys 3? weeks ago. It was a really interesting ride but it is an awful lot of bike on a climb.

I've seen pictures of that truck bike in Holland, loaded with everything from appliances to three or four kids.

That would be a cool way to roll. An urban handyman could do well with it.

There's a guy around here with one of those. I've sen him a few times and chatted with him once. He said the bike was surprisingly expensive to buy here in the US. He had to basically import it himself or something like that. And it's a little challenging to ride it at first because it's heavy and awkward. But he loves it.

1,776 Euros I don't know what that is in USD but it sounds like a bunch.

You could spend that on a high end road racer or mountain bike...
