Taga Stroller and Bike Hybrid Now In The United States

Taga Stroller

Taga Bike and Stroller

The Taga Bike and Stroller, which we previously wrote about [See: http://carrierbike.com/2009/10/18/taga-bike-and-stroller/], is now being offered in the United States by SJS Cycles, joining market leader Zigo in the U.S. carrier bicycle market. The Taga stroller is being offered for $$1,414 on-line, as compared with $1,399 to $1,550 for the multifunctional Zigo Leader Carrier Bicycle. The Taga Bike and Stroller can only be ordered on-line at this time, but it seems likely that Taga will be in stores in the future.  As noted previously, the Taga is a slick design, converting from a 3-wheeled carrier tricycle to a stroller.  Unlike the Zigo Leader, the Taga doe not uncouple from the stroller but rather the rear wheel flips over to become the front wheel.  That is why the Taga stroller has the unusual split handlebars–to make room to pivot the beam over the top.  This also means you need to move the baby seat out of the way to do the conversion.  Taga is a fun ride, but with 16 inch wheels and 3 gears, it is not suited for longer outings.  The split handlebar takes some getting used to.  The Taga handlebar does not feel quite like a regular bicycle handlebar, nor a regular stroller pushbar.  In stroller mode, the lack of a central pushbar makes one hand pushing difficult.  Taga is a welcome addition to the U.S. market and will hopefully expand the cycling culture here in the United States.

The Zigo Leader Carrier Bicycle System is now available Down Under.  Zigo…it’s Australian for really cool bike!  Actually, it’s American for really cool bike, but it’s now being sold throughout Australia through a number of local dealers, which can be seen on www.myzigo.com.au.  To ride a Zigo Leader across the Australian Outback must be awesome, but the one pic we’ve been sent of a Zigo Leader in Australia is more urban [See http://tweetphoto.com/6863649]

We hope to see the Zigo Leader featured next to kangaroos and bedecked in kiwis for its next photo op.  One small step for Zigo…one giant step for Mums and Bubs everywhere.

Zigo Carrier Bicycle System

The Zigo Leader Carrier Bicycle System  operates as a three-wheeled carrier bicycle optimized for transporting children.  It is uniquely designed with a forward-located ChildPod that allows parents to keep their children in site.  The Zigo Leader, using LeaderLink technology, converts into a stroller with caster wheels for walking, a jogging stroller, an ordinary bicycle with 20 inch wheels, or a conventional bicycle trailer for carrying children.  No tools are required for these conversions and they can be accomplished in under 30 seconds. The Zigo ChildPod weighs approximately 19 Kg (42 lbs) while the bicycle weighs 14 Kg (31 lbs).  It folds into a compact package that can fit in a car or closet.  It is also designed to fit through standard ADA doorways in the United States.  It comes in 3-gear and 7-gear versions.  At only $1399 in the U.S. it is very affordable compared to other carrier bicycle products.  Visit www.myzigo.com for more information.
