Bakfiets Cargo (Box) Bike V.S. Longtail Cargo Bike

By: | Tags: | Comments: 0

Hey, We thought we would post this conversation, for those looking at different cargo bike options.  We sell both options but read on to see which we recommend the most for child transportation... We love all different types of bikes, but when we are strictly talking about child transport... We have a parents perspective.  Bakfiets or long tail, which is safest? Long tails are plenty safe in common use and in most situations, but when something goes wrong there is little margin for error. Balancing the weight and movements of two children [...]

Bakfiets.nl Cargo Bike Long Compared to the Milano Cargo Bike Long

By: | Tags: | Comments: 0

This is a comparison of the Urkai Specification bakfiets.nl cargo bike long with the Milano Cargo bike.  These are the only two brands of real Dutch cargo bikes or bakfiets in Canada – they are both manufactured in Holland. The quality is head and shoulders above the others making the Milano the best entry level model and the bakfiets.nl the best luxury model. The Milano is made under license of Bakfiets.nl so it shares the same geometry, dimensions, and the rock solid stand.  The Milano is compatible with all of the […]

Brompton Limited Nickel Edition

By: | Tags: | Comments: 0

We are so pumped that we are lucky enough have our hands on some of the Brompton Nickel Edition in Canada as they were very hard due to a limited production run of 1500 available worldwide and each of them have a special stamp and number to prove it. First question, why use the high phosphorus Nickel plating usually reserved for deep sea drilling and space ships? From a technical standpoint the high phosphorus nickel has very desirable properties such as anti-corrosion, high wear resistance and thickness uniformity and has a [...]

Dutch City Racer Bicycle with wood fenders

By: | Tags: | Comments: 0

New for 2015 – Dutch City Racer Jaws will drop at this vintage inspired Dutch City racer, with true minimalism and raw beauty.  It is fast and especially so with the two speed SRAM which shifts automatically to high gear when you reach 15 km/h.  With a rear coaster brake this allows true perfection, with no cables to mess around with – it is just you and the bike. It was amazing when we tested it earlier this year and now even more so with the stunning wood fenders.  The tough made in Holland […]

Getting your bike ready for winter

By: | Tags: , , , , , , , | Comments: 0

Winter is upon us again, but for many of us, we want to push the bike frontier and enjoy the fun and challenges of cycling in the winter.  I believe I would be letting both my Azor bike and my wife’s bakfiets.nl cargo bike down if we did not ride them through the winter as they were built for year-round use. The frame has two layers of tough powder coat paint with an anti-rust zinc primer, and almost everything else that is not painted is either stainless steel or aluminum, making it […]
