Buick, Ford, Mercedes, Geely, BYD, Acura, Infinity, BMW, you name it, they have it. A spot in a section of Shenzhen houses a plethora of car dealerships. This one stop shop of sorts, presents any car a person wants. They ALSO have bike too, YEAH. While talking to one of the security parking lot attendants, I saw a few of these bikes.
This particular M bike from BMW was a pretty sleek ride. A nice matte black color, coupled with smooth lines, makes this bike look very unique and very tempting to purchase. Then I took a quick peak at the dangling price tag. 22,000 rmb, which is roughly $3,400 USD quickly changed my mind, so I quickly put my credit card back in my bag!
But HEY, just around the corner I spotted another smooth ride. What, is this a Mercedes Benz bicicleta Why yes it is. This small wheeled cruiser is somewhat reminiscent of the traditional Chinese bikes commonly seen on the streets. However, this one is rust-free, attractive as well as efficient. I???m sure MB has worked out all of their bike kinks, so I'll assume that they've eliminated the pogo-effect that commonly accompanies these types of minis. I did not see the price tag, but comparing the two, makes for an awfully difficult decision if I had to choose.
While riding both of these 2-wheeled creations would be fun, the 4-wheeled versions would be just as exhilarating! Well, considering the gas crisis! I think I'll stick with the most efficient mode of transportation ever known to man, the unicycle!
