Today the car stayed in the garage. I took my two kids to preschool and daycare with the bakfiets on the way to work. Meanwhile, my wife had taken the electric Yuba Mundo to her job. Later, she would pick up our daughter from school then they would both pedal over to daycare to pick up our son.
This bike now offers a rather compelling combination of features for my family. Our 5 year old much prefers pedaling on the Piccolo to being strapped in, and we appreciate the addition of her “little motor”. Besides carrying two kids, there’s a large amount of cargo space, a drop-in-and-go basket, and electric assist to help with the overall weight.
Here, the family was preparing to escort me part way to a meeting I was riding to, but as soon as she took bike off the centerstand, the front wheel apparently popped and went flat. Perfection remains elusive.
