I read this article over at gizmodo, which I loved, however the part that I loved most was Mat’s description of his choice of family bike and why. It made me smile.
"When it came to buying a bike for our family, after shopping around, we went with a cycle truck, the Civia Halsted. It’s fast and responsive and great on hills. We put a Yepp Maxi kid carrier on the back, and even when we load the front up with cargo and the back end with an extra 25 pounds of miniature human, it still rides pretty much like every bike you’ve been on since you were a kid.
And what’s more, it makes me feel like a kid. It makes me feel alive and powerful and like I’m in control of my own fate. I ride it almost every day. I make up excuses to go do things. I can’t get enough, I just can’t get enough. Simply put, it’s a blast.”
