Babboe: Big & Electric
What do you get when a group of Parents decide to develop a Family Cargo Bike together? The Babboe, that’s what. Back in 2006, this is exactly what resulted in Holland’s best selling Cargo Bike.
What they were looking for was something which could handle all manner of combinations of Kids, pets, groceries and toys, as well as anything else which might ‘turn up’, like fishing rods (and extra Kids), mud pies and still keep the whole Family rolling as before.
It’s Big …and it’s Clever
One area which many overlook in their Cargo Bike purchasing stage, is whether or not to ‘go electric’. It is after-all a Utility vehicle rather than a Road Bike, so it also needs to be useful when Grandparents step-in too. Which means they need to be able to ride it as well as you!
Electric assist is just that: you still need to steer, pedal, look where you’re going etc., however the motor adds a little boost to get you away from traffic lights just that bit faster, as well as to push you along just as your own Parents did when you started to cycle yourself: particularly useful up steep hills, of that there’s no doubt!!!
