A multitude of Bakfieten to choose from.

We have learned about a few more Bakfiets makers in the Netherlands, with even lower pricing than Babboe.  What is the difference in quality and components, we want to know.

Tuk Tuk Bakfietsen sells a basic unit starting form 495 Euro .  The Tuk Tuk name is taken from a class of motorized tricycles popular in Thailand.  The Dutch version is not motorized, but it is a tricycle.

The Tuk Tuk ‘Basic’ is equipped with: SRAM Spectro with 3 speed, coaster brake, a plywood cargo box with a bench  and SRAM drum brakes. All Tuk Tuk trikes come with aluminum wheels and a powder coated frame.  It seems from the photo to be tiller steering.

The Tuk Tuk Bakfietsen do look rather industrial, but at that price you would not expect it to have the style of a Zigo or Gazelle.

Bakfietsweb.nl is another provider of lower-priced bakfietsen.  The Model 030 tricycle is 699 Euro, which includes a light color wooden box, 3-speed Shimano hub, and coaster brakes plus V-brake.

In two-wheeled Bakfiets they make several models, also with a wooden box and similar components on the cycle.  It comes at two price points: 599 Euro and 699 Euro.  He more expensive Model 020 LB is longer with a bigger box as compared with the Model 010 LB.  We have also heard that Dutch bike maker, Dutch ID, has stopped production of their Bakfiets, called the Cargo XL, pictured below.

And on the subject of Bakfiets manufactuers stopping production we have been informed that de Fietsfabriek stopped production due to financial problems but has now started up again.
It seems that in the country with more bikes than people (the Netherlands), there is naturally no shortage of choices in Bakfietsen.
Please let us know your opinions on these products.  Which are good, which have problems, why some sell for 599 Euro and some for 3,000 Euro.
