Silver Babboe Toddler Seat in Babboe City Cargo Bike

Cradle your littler ones in comfort and safety with the Babboe Cargo Toddler Seat. Available in silver, blue, or dark grey and specifically designed for Babboe Cargo bikes, the toddler seat shell is made of dense but cushion-y foam that can withstand the impact of a collision should one occur. It also provides neck and back support, super important when sleepy heads nod off. Its easy to install, just make sure to leave some space for the rain tent, but we can always do that for you. And, as a heads up, another Babboe Big Cargo Tricycle and Babboe Big Raintent are on their way!


Meanwhile in the Netherlands... March 05 2016

Parent and child riding on bike past flowers

Spring flowers have started popping up in Holland and Dutch people are out riding their bikes enjoying this sensual feast. Here, the Philadelphia Flower Show marks the unofficial beginning of spring. Thousands of people flock to the show because there's nothing like looking at and smelling flowers to put one in a seasonal mood. The actual first day of spring isn't far away though, just another 15 days. Now's a good time to get your bike tuned up or buy a new one so you're ready to go when the warm weather decides to stick around. We carry a large assortment of products to make your bike practical like the one pictured. We have oodles of baskets and panniers (a great way to transport your garden flowers) from Basil, Ortlieb, Wald, and more.  Since you'll want to bring your kid along to help you choose between red tulips or pink hyacinth, we have seats for one year olds on up (like the one pictured above) from Yepp and Bobike. And we get new stuff in all the time.


Yepp Mini: Try Before You Buy January 30 2016

The Yepp Mini front mounted child seat is a great way to travel with your littlest kid. Attached to your stem and nestled between your arms, your toddler will have a great view of the journey while enabling you to chat with him or her along the way. Not sure if it's the right seat for you? We have one set up to test ride on a Simcoe Classic step through bike. Don't worry about the weather because you can give it a quick spin around the shop. We have plenty of room! Need more time to decide? We can attach it to one of our rental bikes. It comes in a range of colors (the purple one above was spotted near Rittenhouse Square this past summer) and will carry a child up to 33lbs. And it comes with an integrated lock so you know it will still be there after stopping for a diaper change. We also stock Yepp Mini accessories like the wind screen and sleep roll.
