Suitable for newborns right up to six years (54lbs/25kg) in bike mode and up to 33lbs/15kg in stroller mode, the Taga can be adapted to hold two children at once and still has room for groceries. Accessories include side baskets, a Graco and Maxi Cosi car seat adaptor, a rain cover and a double wooden seat.

Monika Moni adds: “Many greetings from Germany :) Me and my son Fredrik luv ur bike!”
