“I do not mean to say that it fits all of the circulation delivery problems because it does not, but for certain types of delivery where carriers live far away from the routes or for scattered suburban routes it is the most economical form of delivery I have seen come into circulation operations in many years and I think is well worth while anyone looking into who might also be interested in using it as a prize for boys and while it has a working operating speed of 20 miles per hour and a maximum speed of 30 miles per hour, I think that you will agree this speed is plenty fast enough for a boy and will, generally speaking, keep up with traffic.
“I am not connected in any way with this company nor did I have anything whatever to do with the evolving of the machine and I am writing this article for circulation managers after having looked into the machine and putting it into actual service to see what it would do, believing that it will be of help perhaps in solving some of the problems you are frequently confronted with in scattered deliveries over distances beyond bicycle range.”
The Servi-Cycle has been on the market about a year, which means it has endured the test of public use. Today the Simplex Manufacturing Corporation is selling an increased production. That seems to back what the several individuals quoted above have had to say.
After all, seeing is believing. Why not look up the nearest Servi-Cycle representative and see for yourself whether or not we are right in our judgment of the new lightweight.
