Some ordinary-looking bikes deserve a second glance, like this cruiser with AutoShift we saw on Caltrain.
We sat next to its owner, who fell in love with his first AutoShift bike on first ride. So when the cops repossessed it for being a stolen bike, he searched until he found a replacement. He plunked down a whopping $40 on it used, a huge discount over the original price of 4 payments of $99.95 each (a special TV offer!).
How could you not love a bike with an infomercial like this?
Location: Bicycle car on the Caltrain commuter railway, Mountain View to San Mateo, California, USA
