Double Dutch Bikes,Junk?

I ran across the website doubledutchbikes and they have 3 models of cargo bikes for cheap.I probably already know the answer but thought I'd ask anyway.Are these bikes your typical Chinese garbage? Should we STAY AWAY from these at all cost?

What say you?

"We build our frames in China and have them shipped into the USA"

I can see why you are doubting the quality of these bikes.......China frames.

Which means questionable workmanship as well as questionable quality steels used for the frame tubing.

FWIW, I didn't like that part either.
