Just heard this family cargo bike is coming to the States – got a email out to Henry to verify that it’s “awesome” or “the suck.” Looks like another take on Bakfiets.

Interesting look but those wheels are
small (and therefore not as efficient or smooth riding as a 700c, 650c or 26” wheel) and possibly even worse- look proprietarily sized. I’d never buy a bicycle for myself or significant other to haul our kids around town that couldn’t be quickly serviced by in stock items at a LBS.
I ride little wheels now with folding bikes, so not that much of a concern. Henry had one in his shop for a few months and [reviewed it as](http://www.flickr.com/photos/henryinamsterdam/4348484072/comment72157623621432237/)
> The Taga has been at WorkCycles for several months, gets many looks and has generated much discussion. We’ve done our best to represent it fairly but there are just no buyers. Meanwhile we sell several Bakfiets.nl Cargobikes per week and a handful of [Niholas](http://www.nihola.info/) as well.
What I’m appreciated here Henry also noticed that millions have been spent on industrial design, a spend that’s lacking in what US-based companies will tell you is Cargo. Bending lawn chairs, tent poles, and skateboards into a trailer and then plopping a baby seat on top is not anywhere near what a Bakfiet can do to transport a family.
That is cool. i could use one of these to take my kids down to the beach.They would love it…
