It’s also good to note that while Taga bikes does offer two in one of a stroller and a bike, it’s mainly meant to be used as a bike, with the option of using it as a stroller. When in stroller mode the front two wheels don’t turn and it steers just like a jogging stroller, so you have to push the handles to lift up the front two wheels every time you want to make a turn. The bike is quiet heavy already at 52.9 lbs. so with a child in the seat on top of that makes it a little tedious to go about and maneuvering through the stores and the aisles. But take into account the hassle of bringing a stroller with you when you want to bike with your child instead of driving in a car, and the complaint quickly goes away because it just ain’t possible to bring a stroller with you when biking. My husband would say otherwise with his guns and all but I say that ain’t ever happening with me! So if you plan on using this as a stroller more than a bike, I think you will be disappointed and I wouldn’t recommend getting one. But if you plan on using it mostly as a bike, you will absolutely love it!
My kids LOVE it and always beg me to pick them up from school with it. If you love the attention, you’ll love riding the Taga Bikes, and if you don’t, you are going to have to step out of your comfort zone by a lot because this will turn heads from almost every person and people will stop and ask you questions. Every place I have taken this bike I have had people stop and admire and ask questions. One time at the BCBG store in Park City, I was pushing my child in the Taga in stroller mode and every single lady in that store(there were about 8) all stopped and admired at it and told me it was the coolest looking stroller they have ever seen. I wish I videotaped their reaction when I told them it also converts into a bicycle in 30 secs.! You can’t just leave it at that and leave it to their imagination so of course I happily converted the stroller into a bike right inside the store. The ladies went wild taking pictures and sending it to their friends/husbands/boyfriends. I love meeting new people and getting to know many variety of people so I am always happy to answer their questions or convert it into a bike or a stroller mode for them right then and there.
Thank you Taga Bikes for sending me a sample for this review! I was not compensated to write this review and as always, all opinions are my own.
