Ever heard of Mekaroo?

I'm looking into getting a real cargo bike, although not until spring, at the soonest. I recently came across a bakfiets style bicycle called the Mekaroo. I'd ruled out bakfietsen because of their price, but these ones seem relatively affordable. I am, of course, suspicious. Have any of you seen one, tested one?

I don't know how far you are from Toledo where this company is based, but for that price, I'd make a road trip and try it out! It appears to be an elegant design, and I'm glad there are more bikes like these being made stateside.

Its more than what I paid for my Madsen, though.
