The Taga is a brilliantly designed bike which can carry one or two children, in front of the adult rider. It is a fun way to explore the countryside whilst being able to easily chat and see your child(ren). However the Taga boasts a secret: it also converts into a single or tandem pushchair! It is easy to ride up to your destination, convert the bike into a pushchair and simply walk into your destination! There is no need to leave your bike outside, and the children are still safe in their seats.
A really lovely way to bike with children. Having the child(ren) in front means that the adult can easily see and interact with them. A baby can be carried in a Maxi Cosi car seat, but also can be carried sooner in the main seat than in a say another bike seat. There is less worry about the child being hit from behind by a car as with a trailer. The easy conversion into a pushchair in approx 20 seconds makes it easy to nip to the shops without needing to take a pushchair as well. A very well designed bike / pushchair that works well and easily, and is a lot of fun. There are also options for carrying groceries. Eco friendly transport!
The children need lifting off to do the bike conversion. The seat units do have a stand at the rear but an older child can be heavy. There is no hood for the second seat. The second seat is smaller and space between the seats is restricted. Only 3 gears means that the Taga can be a sluggish ride at times. The Taga feels quite large in pushchair mode, and is best stored (ie smallest) in pushchair mode, which means converting the Taga to store if space is an issue. The weight limits for the children are different in bike mode to in pushchair mode.
