Larry vs Harry Meets Colville
I figured it was time to get me a Bullitt from Larry vs. Harry here in Copenhagen. Their two-wheeled cargo bikes are a modernized version of the classic Danish Long John and they are making quite a splash around the world.
Don't get me wrong, I love the Long John. My dad used to ride around Copenhagen during the Second World War on one, delivering fruit and vegetables. They are classic cool. I just love the Bullitt, too. It's a different style. Most are sold with low handlebars for leaning into the wind, but I prefer the upright position.
The box is custom-made and is perfect for picking up my kids from school and daycare. There are a number of models to choose from and I opted for the white Milk Plus. I figured it's never too late to look like the Copenhagen bike culture equivalent of a Harlem pimp. :-) Now I just need to enter the National Cargo Bike Championships here in Copenhagen on April 18th.
And when you get a new bike like this one, your friends want to try it out.
With all that said, my Scrap Deluxe from Velorbis ain't going nowhere. It's my daily bicycle for looking dapper in the urban landscape.
And you won't convince Wifealiciousness to give hers up, either.
