My (Relatively) New Bakfiets

I asked a lot of questions about gearing, lights and other stuff related to my bakfiets, but I never gave back to the forum and posted anything about it. Iím fixing that now.

Its a knock-off short version that I bought used on Craigslist a few months back. I love it, and ride my kids to school every day. Itís become my favorite bike and I just live it. I really donít know why they didnít catch on more in the US.

I used to have that same bike (or a very similar one), it was my first bakfiet. I loved it too. I found the cockpit was a little small for climbing the hills in my hood so I moved on to a different bakfiet but still hold a place in my heart for what started it all.

P.s. not sure if things got turned around in the mess of box riding but your kiddos helmet is on backwards.
