One downside of bicycles is that they don't come with spacious passenger seating or trunks to haul precious cargo across the city. Fear not, the Babboe City cargo bike is large enough to carry three kids, a mountain of groceries, lumber and enough two-fours to get you through a long weekend. Its galvanized steel frame can take pretty much whatever abuse you throw at it.
The best part is that, despite being able to lug around 250 pounds of stuff, the bike has a seven-speed internal gear hub that gets you up to speed quickly. The cargo box's low position also makes for a surprisingly stable ride.
