I'm with one of the posters when I say where do you keep the diapers and 20# of other stuff you drag along with your little blessing?

Also, I don't like the termalogy of "the child is trapped in". And the poor kid looks like she is too!

Forget 20 pounds of stuff, I travel pretty light with my kid, but there is not even any place to put a water bottle. So add a big backpack to that lady's outfit. Other than the weird head gadget for the kid, it's actually a pretty cool contraption, though.

i love the Zigo... very nice. and for the price of a Chariot+necessary Chariot add-ons+bicycle it begins to have some advantages. just wish it had disc brakes.

Remember, the bicycle and stroller sections come apart.

I hear say, they have a few new things coming in the future. The Pod now has more then ample space for a pet and Groceries 80 lbs capacity. I'm sure the right person could tweak the pod for larger items. I'm a Zigo rider & I work for them as well.
