Even though it's easy to get transfixed by low forward cargo bikes, or specialty haulers, the fact is that a basic, diamond frame bicycle can be an incredible tool. If you have only perused the Current Classics, Singlespeed or Cyclocross galleries, take a while to see the diversity of design and use that can be found in the Working Bikes Gallery.
Jason's Schwinn Heavy-Duti
Across various airports, ridiculously large warehouses and assembly plants, you can reliably find bikes like these. They are the mine mules of our time; used interchangeably to get somewhere, get something done, and not have to fuss about it. They are load-carrying beasts, ready to roll with little preamble.
What inspires me about this bike is that it seems to have made a break for the daylight and kept running. Now it gets to roll around on the roads, breath in the fresh air and enjoy the elements. Because of its tough past, there's little now that can faze it.
Roll on, Heavy-Duti!
