I don't have many pictures of the baby in the bike, they were usually under the cover of the chariot or I was concentrating on riding. I used to use a carseat or a bugaboo stroller strapped into the...

I used a chariot trailer for our first kid, I used it with the infant sling from the time he was about 3 months old. Our second kid was in a bakfiets from birth and then the Cetma when we got it. ...

I had a friend with a Madsen, and on my own CETMA, I find that the 20" wheel makes little difference except that it goes through bearings about twice as fast as the 26". The 20" rear wheel gives you...

I find that the dummy is sportier, like a mountain bike and the Mundo is more like a city bike. I have ridden a Yuba with an (total 250lbs) adult and a child on the back, and it was very...

I have some of the sks ones, and they work really well on any bike that they fit on. I also have some from Velo Orange that work well and look classic.

I didn't get my cargo bike because it was safer than a rack, I got it because I can carry a few hundred pounds of stuff in addition to the kids. Also, the cargo bike is much more stable to ride - my...

I have been using Schwalbe big apples. They last about 5000km on a Cetma cargo bike. Schwalbe marathons last even longer, but don't ride as nicely.

This is a fairly common problem with narrow rims and wide tires. 50 mm tires will work much better with a wider rim, 25c or larger. I would go with one of the 29er MTB rims.

The Linus Mixte is one of my favourite riding bikes, but the Boda Boda can carry a lot more stuff and is probably more versatile.
