Originally "bakfiets" in Dutch, literally "box bike" in English (pronounced "BUCK-FEETS"), this bike is structurally similar to the long john but has a wooden or plastic container on the flat bed on the front. This variety is popular for schlepping children and often comes equipped with seats, seat belts, rain covers and other things to increase the comfort of children.

Popular brands include Bakfiets.nl, Bullitt, Workcycles, Babboe, Riese & Muller, Urban Arrow. Even Yuba is getting into the game.
