      It looks like she has training wheel on the front. What are they for?

      Haha, yes, they could resemble training wheels. But they're actual a clever design feature. A kickstand. When you stop the bike to deliver post, you merely kick up the wheels and the bike is supported. All that post makes the bikes very heavy.

      The great thing is that when you're ready to ride you just push the bike forward and the wheels pop up again. Off you go.

      Have you ever seen one of these kickstands sold without the bike? This looks like a great Xtracycle accessory. Easier to use than kickstand that is in the back because you don't need to dismount first. Especially with kids on the back!!

      i think i have somewhere. i know they are standard issue on bikes in japan where mothers routinely transport two or three kids on their bike.

      I'd be interested in seeing how the mechanism works, and if it could be adapted to work with the Yuba Mundo. Any idea why it stays up?
