Family Triplet: A bicycle built for five

The Dutch Fietsenmakerij Onderwater created this Family Triplet tandem bicycle for large families on the move.


To be available in limited quantities through Work Cycles. According to Work Cycles, one parent and two kids pedal, and if needed a child seat can be fitted on the rear carrier and a third kid's saddle with stationary footrests behind the parent's handlebar, for a total capacity of four children. The whole rig is about the same length as a Bakfiets Cargobike Long.

Other features include Basta Pilot LED headlamp, hub dynamo, Schwalbe marathon tires, Shimano IM70 rollerbrake, wheel with 12 gauge stainless spokes, stainless fenders, triple rear stays, chain case, special wide double stand, and Shimano Nexus 8 speed hub.
