I was recently at the Darebin Kite Festival with my small family, - 3
year old, 1 year old, and partner - and took time out to give my neck a
rest and turned to admire a cargo cycle, as in the ones that were until recently imported into Melbourne
from China, but not any longer.
We are tentatively considering a cargo
bike to transport kids/shopping/etc, because my 3 year old boy has
actually outgrown our Burely double trailer. He's tall for his age...and we still have two kids to transport around.
We can't afford a $3,000 Gazelle, which would be the 2-wheeled cargo bike alternative.
This 3-wheeled cargo box bike
is imported by Countdown Imports: it's a much cheaper alternative to the real-deal Christiania cargo bike. I've been in contact with Countdown to find out the amazing price (as in low) of these 'bikes'.
I'm looking for independent opinions from people who use them.
Does anyone in this group have an opinion about, or use the Countdown Imports bike?
