When you ride a bakfiets cargo bike long, you get stopped a lot.
Things people stop Kendra to ask (sometimes in the middle of the street)
- Is it hard to steer? Nope, it takes 20 seconds the first time on a bakfiets to get used to the wheel being so far away, but other than that 20 seconds, it is super easy and a lot of fun.
- Is it heavy? A bakfiets is not fast but is smooth and easy to ride. If you are looking for light and fast, you probably shouldn’t be looking at any cargo bike. A bike should be the right tool for the task.
- Can you carry kids? – Yes, yes and yes – we have trouble getting kids to get out because they are having way too much fun! The long version can fit 3 in the box strapped in. There are many configurations, including putting a seat on the back!
Life is too short not to love your ride!
Kendra has many bicycles, but the bakfiets is the only one she cannot live without.
