Bella BikeBella Bike is another Danish carrier bicycle product. It seems the Danes love their cargo bikes. It is a box style bike with a large front carrier for children or cargo. Bella bike has a unique rear-wheel steering. We have not tried it but have been told it take some getting used to. The Bella Bike comes in a staggering array of colors and designs, so it is easy to express your personality with it. It is rather large, and can carry up to four children. This seems larger than needed for most; certainly it is over-sized for the U.S. market. It has a reinforced aluminum frame, wooden floor panels for the box, an internal Shimano 7-speed hub for the bike, a front hand brake and rear coaster brake. The rear wheel has suspension and it comes with lights and bells, as do many European products. Bella Bikes also makes the Bella 2, which is lighter and designed to carry two children. The Bella 2 costs about US$2500 in Denmark. In the UK we found it listed for the equivalent of US$2610 plus the cost of the seats, which will add another US$240. [In the UK, the same company also offers the Zigo Leader at equivalent of US$2230, or 22% cheaper than the Bella 2.] Overall, a nice look with a lot of design options. It is priced in line with the boxy type of carrier bikes common to Northern Europe, and like others it looks quite heavy. Still, another nice carrier bike from Denmark.
