Thanks for the great link, James. I want some of those white tires for my J&O. Todd says Schwalbe is making some. Did you ever sell your Pashley?

Richard,
I saw one of these about a month ago on top of a car on SE 58th near division. I've been wishing ever since that I had stopped and asked about it!

I think it must be made by Loeki. There are several of these on the Dutch Marktplaats.nl site...

A search of the Loekie site at http://www.loekie.nl doesn't yield any current Kinderbakfiets model, though a Google search on the term picks up a bunch of photos of little bikes like this... Does anyone know if production was discontinued for some reason? Maybe they weren't safe or didn't sell well???

You mean the cream schwalbe delta cruisers? A while back someone was selling the 635 and 590s on ebay. I should have bought some.

No. I haven't sold it yet.
I've started working on the replacement. It's going to look like a deutsche post bike.

According to Piet of eBay's Dutch Bikerstore:

"I know these ones,but Loekie has stopped with these selling.

It`s a very small very market here,so we also stopped selling with these
bikes a few years ago."

Hi Richard,

nice Cargobike blog with excellent pictures! I like it.

But this is not meant to be an "official" comment on your blog (please discard it...). I just wanted to draw your attention to my humble Long John workbike pages on http://tinyworld.de/fahrrad/index.html

Long Johns are (more or less) the Danish ancestors of modern Dutch Cargobikes, so maybe you´ll like some of the stuff on my website.

Cheers,
Christian

Yep, Loekie has stopped production of this cute little bakfiets. We keep threatening to make a kid sized transport bikes... but its not high on the priorities. First we'll get our new transport bike on the market, and then improvements to the Bakfiets Cargobike, and then...

You'll be able to follow (some of) the progress on our blog: www.bakfiets-en-meer.nl

Groeten,
Henry
