Babboe Cargo Bike: How it all started!

Babboe Cargo Bikes was founded in 2006 as an initiative by parents, for parents. At that time there were many young parents looking in vain for a good, affordable family cargo bike. Because we were (and still are) young parents ourselves, we decided to do something about it. But what makes a good cargo bike? And what can people afford? We posed these questions to many parents, and then we got to work with the answers. 

Within two years we had developed our first cargo bike together with an engineering company. It was a period of trials and errors. In 2007 the first Babboe cargo bike was ready: the Babboe Big, a robust three-wheel cargo bike that met all of our requirements. Was this the beginning of a flourishing business?

Babboe cargo bikes take over the Netherlands

The first Babboe cargo bike quickly took over the Netherlands. With the Babboe Big, affordable quality got a ‘face’ in every city. Thanks to the many Babboe-pioneers, we were able to rapidly improve our original model. Meanwhile the Babboe Big grew up, which you can see in the comprehensive guarantee and service package as well as the growing number of accessories. But could we sit back and take it easy? Obviously not.

Electric cargo bike revolution

Imagine this: a constant tailwind, much larger range, feather-light cycling even with heavy cargo, grandparents effortlessly riding your children around, and so on. Was this feasible and affordable for young parents? We sought direct collaboration with a number of top suppliers. They quickly saw it as the ‘green alternative to cars’. In 2009 we introduced the electric cargo bike: the Babboe Big-E, a revolution in the cargo bike world! Since then, all of our cargo bikes have also been available with electric pedal assistance.

Im glad I spoke to Steve at the eBike Centre as I was all set to buy a bike from a company that make Vacuum cleaners. I was alerted to certain possible problems with this route so I tried a few bikes at the eBike Centre and went away and mulled over the price of the bike I was the interested in against my original plan. I then checked more reviews for my original possible purchase and the issues I was informed about were peppered all over the review sites. I had to re adjust my finances on this but Steve was more than flexible on options for the sale. So although I may have to eat beans for a month, I am happy with my purchase as this morning I cycled 15 miles to work and I can still walk. I relish the many hills I encounter and am enjoying the assistance the bike is giving me along my rides. Ive been on it all weekend and have actively been finding steeper and steeper hills to play with and trails! I cant recommend an eBike from the ebike-centre more. They provide a great service and advice with no pressure to buy.
