Babboe

I was browsing the New York Times this past Sunday, and when I saw this picture I instantly ripped it out:


She's got three kids in there!

I did a little google search to try and find out more about these Babboe cargo bikes, and unfortunately, most of the info is in Dutch. It's always the Dutch that come up with these cool bikes! I did find out some more info on the bikes at Spark Design.


And a YouTube video of one in use loaded with kids:



Does anyone out there know more about these/how to get one in the states??

Hey - I am a friend of Missy Negri Shinall's. She had sent me a link to your blog and I really enjoy reading it from time to time. Saw this post today and I agree with you...this bike rocks. The Dutch word for the cargo bike is bakfiets. For a pretty penny, you can order one from here - http://www.dutchbikeseattle.com/html/bikes/bakfiets.html
Here is a blog I just found dedicated to bakfiets http://bakfietscargo.blogspot.com/

$1066.65

Ouch.
