The Wehrmacht, focused on mechanization during WWII, was accelerating the
deployment of bicycles as a simple means of transportation. Many bicycle
manufacturers in Germany produced bicycles for military use, so various types
could be seen. However, the main parts of the bicycles were standardized to
facilitate the easy replacement of parts. Most of the bicycles were equipped
with a luggage carrier at the rear and a storage box for ammunition and
grenades in the middle of the frame.
