Test Drive: Cargo Bike

I went to Dutch Bike Co Seattle and test drove the Bakfiets Cargobike with my son.  I wanted to hate the Cargobike but I love it and it will work for want I want and what my goals are.

I am a bike cheapskate so this is totally out of my budget and it was not in the plan.  I am just starting to think about a Spring bike commute.  I wonder if a Box Bike is in the stares for me.

This bike is considered heavy but compared to my old bike, this bike is GREAT.  I even tried a hill and it was not too bad.

I am looking forward to Spring biking and a little blogging.


  1. See also CETMA cargo bikes. Mine is currently being built; you're welcome to try it out when it gets here in a month or so. I'm in the Ravenna area. My email is dilinger at queued dot net

  2. Thanks, I will take you up on that. I am really green about my bike options but I do know what I like. Also, thanks for responding, makes me love the Seattle Bike Community.

  3. One of the women I work with has a trailer which she uses to haul her kid to daycare and then leaves the trailer there for the return trip. It's another option.

    Also when your son gets larger, their is a rear attachment that lets him pedal and ride as if it were a tandem. Makes the hills a lot less trouble.
