delivering groceries in Denmark. As far as I can tell, the primary design
consideration of these is the ability to carry 24*300ml cases of beer, or
soda pop. At least the cargo bay is sized to fit these cases. Of course they
still allow for carrying of other goods. I wish I had a picture. They are
elongated with the cargo carrying area down low and in front of the rider.
