Babboe City Cargo Bike


Babboe City Cargo Bike

The Babboe City is the bike to replace your car. With its huge front wheelbarrow style box for two kids or anything else, you will never want to drive your car again. It rides surprisingly easy for an 8ft long bike and actually better with some weight in the front.  The striking beech wood container has smooth, curved corners and a high edge for added safety. The tires are extra thick, making the cargo bike even more comfortable. The color combination of anthracite grey/cognac together with the cool varnished wooden container gives the Babboe City cargo bike a contemporary and chic look.

Why so suitable for transporting children?

  • No more swaying with children seated at the back and front with shopping hanging from the handlebars
  • You can always see what your children are doing; they are not seated out of sight behind you such as in a bike trailer
  • Safer than a child’s seat on the bicycle (source: ADAC survey 2011)
  • You can cycle with your baby as of 3 months of age
  • You can leave your car at home; healthy and good for the environment
