      Hi Juergen. Something I added to my list is a - chopper for sculptured
      beauty. I've been looking at chopper cruisers for several years and
      just last week I picked up a Christmas Special, a PhatCycles.com
      Modified Stretch for half price at my local bike shop. Its a single
      speed. I suppose that falls into the simplicity category. I went in
      for a XtraCycle and couldn't pass up the deal. I plan on getting my X
      cargo bike sometime when its warmer out. To satisfy my interest I've
      been collecting some online photos for my home slide showing of the X at
      work. I hope to put the X into overtime duty this summer doing some
      trail building. -Mark
