I had a bad day at the office so I drove down to Nogales . . .

. . . and I bought this.

My new favorite bike. It handles like a drunk camel, would easily carry a refrigerator, and stops about as fast as you can recite the Book of Leviticus. Cost: $225.00 right off the shop floor.

  1. …donno what i’d use one for but i dig truck bikes…mike flanagan of Alternative Needs Transportation (ANT) builds some custom beauties…

    …but, senor e.b., that looks like a great one for the price…can you say beer run…

  2. so awesome. I bet I could get 3 cases, a grill and whatever else i needed to the river and back, no problemo with that one.

    Nice purchase.

  3. A few plant’s I’ve worked in have the Workman trikes.

    You gotta ride solid rubber tires to call yourself a man.

    Great way to fuck off at work.

  4. You need to figure out how to get discs on the front of that. Seriously, that could be a new sport… some sort of midget-frontal assault machine or something.

    Discs, dude… Discs.

  5. YEA YEA let’s spend more on new brakes than on the whole bike, it’s more fun not being able to stop quickly, kind of like desending on a fixie without any of those girly brakes. weeeee

  6. Whoa! That is cool! I’d get one of those just to have it but I smell a business opportunity…a propane keg fridge and grill and you’d be the da man at local bike races!!!

  7. Keith, it says “Mercurio” on the top tube. I think it means “Warlike.” I know Benotto Mexico makes a lot of these bikes. They are easy to find in Mexico . . . but I’ve never seen one for sale here, and even here in Tucson they are a real oddity.

    Bikepunk, there are no need for disc brakes. You can just flip the thing in a real hurry should you ever need to stop faster than your rear wheel will serve. I’ve already covered nearly as much ground on two of its wheels as I have on all three.

  8. While carrying fat chicks who needs brakes? I’d be riding as slow as I could just so all my friends could see and laugh their asses off! I guess mopeds, this bike, and fat chicks all have something in common…your friends will think your the shit for riding ‘em.

  9. Oh my gawd….what is going on here ??

    Tri-cycles, disc brakes, pink bikes, etc.

    What is this place becoming ?? A rest stop for the “Pansies of America Foundation” ??

    Next thing ya know someone will shell out good beer money for a fucking Big Wheel.

  10. Two wheels good, three wheels better? Four? Five? Fifty-five? Fuck, I guess as long as you’re driving ‘em with your own beef, plus beer, brats and a brain-damaged bimbo in each saddlebag, it’s all good, qué no?

    All good except for the brats. They make me fart.

  12. Discs, dude… Discs.

    Not necessary. All that’s required to halt your forward progress is to overthrow a wide open receiver with the goal line at his mercy……

  13. Are you saying that this is a production bike and more are available?

    i want one, what size seat tube> I have a 27.2 rock shox post i was going to ebay but now…

  14. Prolly not a good idea to ride that thing naked down hill in the rain. although you could put a matress up front in case you brodie over the bars

  15. I am already dreaming what i can do with that. Gears, amp, home built speaker system, IPOD, and a case of Fat Tire. Here I come high school girls. Or if I every go broke I can make it into a taco cart. Dos tacos el pastor, con salsa rojo.

  16. That thing would suck something awful to stop on the hills around here, much less with an actual load on it (other than myself being loaded, naturally). Heck, I wish my road bike had discs on it around here.

  17. I just have visions of David Lee Roth singing “I’m your Ice Cream Man” outside the local tan-in-a-can.

  18. We had these in the air force. I loved riding to the supply building and back on just two wheels. Very smooth. Three ways to take a curve.

  19. That thing certainly eliminates the issues of how much beer can be hauled back in one back trip.

    Now drag it up to the top of Swan road in Tucson, pound a few and let it rip.

  20. yeah…it would pay for itself if you had a hooker kneeling in the basket giving blowjobs as you rode around. Pimp daddy!
