Looking for make/model of this cargo bike

Hey all,

Iíve been looking for particular type of cargo trike for my wife. I want an upright tadpole trike, cargo box in the front, and regular handlebars (not the cart style).

I found these two images that are exactly what Iím looking for. Who can name a make/model or a specific subtype?

The one in your links is a Nihola. If you're considering an electric option, then also check out Butchers and Bicycles MK-1.

Having tried both a Nihola and a B****e curve at the International Cargo Bike Festival, both my wife and I concluded the Babbeo curve was the better of the two.

Thank you both for pointing out the Nihola brand. And thank you, Gareth for the Babbeo reference. It meet my requirements and is a far bet cheaper.

Also consider a trike kit, the two I know of are the French AddBike and Israeli Trego, both can fit various size boxes to the front, both attach to the front fork of a standard bicycle. AddBike have a Montreal dealer, Trego will ship anywhere.

TReGo, upgrade your bike

Can you elaborate? We are going to buy either a B****e Curve or a Nihola family this spring.

We were leaning towards the Nihola because it is lighter, it has better handling (according to online reviews and our LBS), and we are not planning to have more than 2 kids. Also, it is prettier. But we also like the B****e, and it is a bit cheaper. Can you please tell me what you like about the B****e Curve or what you don't like about the Nihola Family? Thanks!
