Our other car is an e-bakfiets

our bakfietsWe just bought a bakfiets (or box bike in English) from Urkai. t's quite a bike. It's large, long, heavy. But it rides smooth and easy even when the box is loaded with a kid and everything for an outing.

We've wanted a Dutch-style box bike for a while. We've already got other Dutch bikes and appreciate the low-maintenance and comfort. The Bakfiets.nl cargo bike with electric assist that we got is really well-built. Urkai is based in Burlington, Ontario, but ships anywhere in Canada. Read more about our deep dive into cargo bikes.

Full disclosure: I approached Urkai about getting a discount if I wrote up my experiences, and owner Andrew agreed.
