The making of Azor Dutch Bikes

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

It is no secret that we are huge fans of Azor bicycles and Bakfiets, so being able to visit the factory while we were in the Netherlands was a treat and an honour. Heading to the industrial area of the Netherlands is nothing like any industrial area in Canada, the huge difference, there are bike paths! As we headed into the building, the first thing to see is the showroom of beautiful bicycles, and there are a LOT. Pick a frame, any frame! As you will notice Azor does not […]

A car is an inanimate object, and so is a bakfiets, but because I pedal it, I bring it to life, and I become more alive. Before I became pregnant, […]

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 […]


Yepp Jr. Bicycle Seat Review

As many of you know, we test all of the products personally before we decide to carry them in our store. It is a fun job, but someone has to do it! One of the products we tested recently was the Yepp Junior, which is designed for children from 5 – 10 years old, with a weight capacity of 20 -35 kg.  Which is very similar to the Bobike Junior and Qibbel Junior seats we sell. For this test ride, we found ourselves in one of our favorite places Holland […]
