Zigo

Is an American maker of tadpole style tricycles for young families, where the children sit in front of the driver. It has Ackerman steering similar to the Nihola tricycle. However, what makes it unique is that it can quickly be converted into either a single person bicycle or into a jogging stroller. The cargo area is made of fabric and tube construction similar to most bicycle trailers.

We noticed they were selling these through Target’s online store for a while. Which is an amazing approach because it means that there’s a possibility that these could become more mainstream in America. Not just for bicycle geeks like us.

Of course the early adopters would have to pay a premium price ($1399 base model), but as sales increase, quantities of scale would hopefully kick in. If they could get these into stores like Costco or Sam’s Club at around $700 or less (combined cost of a medium quality bicycle and bicycle trailer), MyZigo could become more commonplace. This is the first real attempt at bringing a refined factory built cargo tricycle to the masses in the US. The Zigo team should be applauded for their efforts.

As for the trike itself, here are some quick thoughts.

Pros:
Factory built
Unique convertible design (Bicycle/Stroller/Tricycle)
Folds flat for transportation
Weatherproof cargo area for kids
Safety harnesses for kids
Ackerman steering (stable ride)

Cons:
Small cargo area due to Ackerman steering. Families with more than one kid might find it cramped when grocery shopping or running errands.
Fabric style cargo area, difficult to customize.
Complex converting system.
High initial cost.

Comments:
If not for the price, this could be a great cargo tricycle for a lot of families. It’s safe, looks refined, the kids are comfy, and they are in sight of the driver. Also, the Ackerman steering design means it has better stability vs. pivot style tricycles. However, having the convertible design adds complexity and cost to the design. Some families might even find that they don’t convert the tricycle into a stroller at all.

For a first round, the MyZigo has a the makings of real hit. However, families on a budget will most likely have to go with a China made Christiania style trike. However, for those with large discretionary income, MyZigo is definitely a good option.

    I believe everything composed was very logical. However,
    think about this, suppose you composed a catchier title?
    I ain’t suggesting your information isn’t good., however suppose you added a title that makes people want more?
    I mean Zigo | cargocycling.org is a little vanilla.
    You might peek at Yahoo’s home page and note how they create article titles to grab viewers to
    open the links. You might try adding a video or a picture or two to grab people excited about what you’ve written. In my opinion, it might bring your blog a little bit more interesting.

    Professional and singer Patrick Bruel ended up being among France’s biggest stars through the ’90s, first making their
    name as a teen idol and leading a positive to traditional French chanson inside the
    new millennium. Bruel was created Patrick Benguigui
    with Tlemcen, Algeria, on May 14, 1959. His or her father abandoned the family unit when Patrick was simply a year old,
    and 1962, after Algeria acquired its independence, his mother moved to
    France, residing inside the Paris suburb regarding Argenteuil.
    A great soccer player in his youth, Patrick first settled on the
    idea of as being a singer having seen Michel Sardou perform in 1975.

    As fortune may have it, acting would bring him his first good results; first-time overseer Alexandre Arcady ran an advertisement seeking a new
    man having a French-Algerian (or “pied-noir” in France slang) accent for his movie Le Coup dom Sirocco.
    Benguigui (as having been still called) responded and gained
    the business. The year, he spent a in Ny, where he met Gérard Presgurvic,
    later for being his most important songwriter.

    check the spelling on quite a few of your posts. Many of
    them are rife with spelling problems and I in finding it very bothersome to
    tell the truth on the other hand I’ll surely come back again.
