Dutch Bakfiet test ride

My friend is selling his like new Bakfiet. So I got to test ride it around his neighborhood. This is the family cruiser cargo bike; a rideable wheelbarrow. A robust family vehicle that is eco-friendly.

It is just over 7 feet long and 90 pounds. It barely fits inside the Transit Connect.

I carried my very heavy toolbox that weighed in at 80 lbs but it only made the bike ride more solid and stable. The low center of gravity has a stabilizing effect when there is cargo in the bike.
