Not that we have a Bugaboo, mind you. Why blow that much on a stroller when you could spend it on bikes? But folks, the world of high-zoot strollers is about to have its tuchus handed to it by this new Dutch-Israeli stroller-bike transformer:
Oh - your Bugaboo seat can flip around? That's just super. This Taga stroller? It turns into a freaking kid cargo trike! Shazam!
The quick conversion looks particularly nifty - kind of like a backwards Brompton fold. Internal 3-speed hub, full chaincase, tasty planned double-seat options (I like the wooden covered wagon one below), fully nappable, nice-looking safety considerations, and just plain fine-looking design. Poke around their gallery for the options.
Of course, it all comes down to the ride, and I haven't been a big trike fan, and wonder about tipping in corners and when older kids are trying to climb in and out. So does Henry, who noted this company in his Eurobike writeup. But still, I've never had stroller lust ... but I do now.
Henry and Dr. Mekon have both had quick test rides, and report that while it is well-built, it seems more comfortable for short rides, and should be thought of as a really big stoller that you can pedal rather than a bike that you'd comfortably ride for more than a mile. I agree with both of them that a bakfiets with a baby and umbrella stroller (or sling, etc) would be preferable, but hey, all three of us are bike nuts. I'll be curious to see how the Taga does in the market. I'm afraid it'll be quite expensive ...
