Second Hand Nihola Family

The nihola Family cargo bike is Nihola’s most popular model for families with children. The Family cargo bike can carry up to 100 kg in the cabin and there is space for 2 children of up to the age of 7-8 years old on the bench. The cabin, which surrounds and protects the children, gives extra peace of mind because the frame is built up of a closed double tube frame without corners consisting of top and bottom frame tubes that are welded together with 5 vertical steel sections


This bike is 6 years old (bought in April 2014). It is still in a very good condition terms of driving experience. The owners have been servicing it at least twice a year, but often more frequently.

Its primary purpose for transporting two children to and from the schools and other activities in the neighbourhood across the well-paved park (Clapham Common)


A list of wear and tears:

The metal screw-like on the front left that is used to hold the cover got a bit bended

The rain cover is usable but visibly tired

The box has scratches

The gear has gotten permanent steam on the window so you can’t see clearly which gear you are using

There is no front light on the left side

The saddle is totally usable for a foreseeable future but has a bit of a crack on it



The nihola Family cargo bike has, after testing, been called the best 3-wheeled cargo bike for child transportation by the Danish newspaper Politiken and the Dutch ”Fietsersbond” (Dutch Cyclist Union).
