SIOUX FALLS, South Dakota - It's literally the Mercedes Benz of bicycles.
The German company has teamed with the International Police Mountain Bike Association to donate $2 million worth of bicycles to police departments across the United States.
The police version of Mercedes' all-terrain mountain bike comes complete with a version of the famous three-prong hood ornament.
A police officer in Sioux Falls says the $2,000, 24-speed mountain bike is "neat" and "rides really nice."
