Andres Bertin 1976 three speed concept

A wonderful ride so tall that one truly sails on her. For my winter commutes on a quaint dirt path to the celery factory.

three speed

More Info:
Bell is essential for my town's lovers on the trail, the brace keeps the triangle straight. There is a species of elderly woman in my town who takes offense at bell, and so they purposely block path until make me stop, and if I get angry then the town will put glass and thorns in path. I'd begun to gain popularity upon the trail until I never changed my attire, then immediately lost popularity and am called vulgar names. When it rains the cars drive in gutter and throw water on me.

Not that tall but I wanted a bike too tall, I was scared at first to stop and had to circle at every red light then I seemed to hit them all and soon lines of children were in front of me laughing because I couldn't put my foot down.
