Taga is a new style of bike, which just scored a Eurobike 2008 Award and the Kind and Jugend Innovation Award.
This looks pretty good – though I’ll probably always worry about the combination of kids and urban traffic – but it’s hard to beat the wonderful Copenhagen tricycles:
If only every town were planned to accomodate them…
The combination of having the child in front and the extra strong harness looks like it may be ideal for a disabled child; they don’t list any specs on child weight, etc. that I’ve seen on their site. They also don’t state about US availability. I would love to take my son on a bike ride.

but more expensive, and more dangerous?
That is fantastic design.
wow! that’s fantastic.
maybe the design was inspired by the cyclos in vietnam and cambodia :)
Your picture doesn’t show that the Taga bike folds into a baby carriage in 20 seconds. It also won first prize at the huge Kind+Jugend exhibition in Germany. Here is an example of the publicity it received: http://www.puericulture.tv/velo-poussette-taga.php
