"Hi Mark I'm sure you will find the Christiania 2wheeler very easy to steer around corners if you are used to the cabby. No doubt the trike takes a bit to get used to and should never be considered as a standard 2wheeler, they all have their…"

"Thank you for your advise. For now children are to young to ride by themselves (one is 3 years old and 2 twins are 1 year old). I've never been in Sydney. My husband told me it would be difficult to carry the children because of the hill but I…"

"I ride to and from Balmain a couple of days per week (with cargo bike but without kids) and the hills and the sometimes ridiculous cycle shared paths would make it a challenge for a 3 wheeled bike. 3 Kids on a longtail would also be a challenge even…"

A cargo bike in Sydney

Hi, I'm a new entry on Sydney Cyclist but just because I'm moving from Italy to Sydney (Balmain area) in few weeks. I've 3 children to carry everywhere and I would like to buy a cargo bike there. Does anybody can tell me  where I can find it? Also, the best I've used is the Christiania one but of course any suggestion about that is more than welcome. Thank youCaterinaSee More
