Bakfiets!



We ordered it just before our trip to the States. What a great way to get around!

that is so cool! How do the handle bars control the front wheel for steering? are there cables or something? (i know I am a geek) :-)

The handlebars control the steering of the front wheel via a steering rod underneath the box. The turning radius isn't half-bad! It's very well-balanced and handles even better than the MotherShip. I was pleasantly surprised!

Check out our Flickr group for a bunch more photos of bakfietsen.

There are also a couple of blogs that talk about them:

Sorry... to blitz you with posts, but can you post this image on flickr and add to our bakfiets group?

That would be great.

Thanks.

Wow, Scott! That was a lot of commentary! ;)
The photo is uploaded. Thanks for including us!

Mimi, we're sure there's room in the box for you! We love you!
