Trio in the 'hood

I was cycling around Copenhagen with a friend from Japan, Hiro, and we spotted this Triobike - the Mercedes of cargo bikes. We stopped to have a look and while I was explaining how you drop off the kids at kindergarten, take off the bike, take out the wheel under the cargo bay and put it on the bike before riding off to work - the owner came back. She was kind enough to pose for a photo.

Hiro has the coolest skate and snowboard shop in Osaka - see more at Proty.com.

Read more about the Triobike at Copenhagenize.com or go straight to their website.


Women's Wear Daily - WWD - has a piece about luxury brands hopping onto the 'let's produce a bicycle' trend. I was asked for my opinion but upon reading the piece I realised... 'oh, shit... I'm a 'pundit''. :-)

Be sure to check out Bike Skirt - Girls, Bikes, Their City and lots of skirts. Funky little blog.

Wow, what a bike to cruise through the city with. Elegant design, good and solid looking technical equipment but I guess I'd rather prefer a seat than a saddle, like on a recumbent bike.
Then you can pack the children to the back of the bike and you're on the front again, you're the boss!
