The Skeppshult V Bike, an all-steel frame construction, 17 kilos (42 pounds), three-gear bike, makes for a great way to get around the city, and is designed almost like a scooter with its small balloon tires and low-rider frame plus lots of hauling attachments. This Skeppshult V Urban bike is meant for short trips and features extra-wide package racks that can be positioned into either frame end, and black or silver attaching boxes with lids that can take about a 20-pound load, as well as metal attachable baskets. The base base bike sells for a price around 4,800 Swedish crowns (US$775). Also look for the new Skeppshult V, which will be released later in March. Skeppshult Bikes.
