it's a bike. it's a stroller. it's a taga.

christmas is long gone & my birthday isn't for months, but i'm currently lusting after THIS piece of fierce machinery. it's part bike, part stroller, part wagon, part grocery cart, part trike, part people mover... & i'm looking for any excuse to park it in my garage. i'm already imagining the possibilities - trips to the grocery store, dropping the kids off at school, biking down the hungtington beach boardwalk, & "wheeling" around the neighborhood in general.

what amazes me most about this bike/stroller/wagon/grocery cart/trike/people mover is all the options! seriously, it really & truly is amazing... you can make it a double (which is perfect for ME... i can strap charlie & owen in, while gavin rides his own bike), there's a car seat attachment, a shopping basket, or even this crazy covered wagon type of wooden double seat. plus, did i mention that you can convert the BIKE to a STROLLER in about 20 seconds FLAT?! hello, A-MAZING!

i know, i know, by now you are thinking THIS is way too good to be true. but honestly, i've seen it myself... all up close & in-person, & THIS is the real deal. in fact, i've even taken it for a spin - & i'm here to tell you, that it is one amazing ride. of course, i was wheeling it around a hotel ballroom (i still can't believe i rode a bike/stroller/wagon/grocery cart/trike/people mover around the ritz carlton! but seriously, don't we look good together? this bike/stroller/wagon/grocery cart/trike/people mover definitely "suits" me!), but even with another adult in the "child's seat," it pedaled like a dream. (it probably has something to do with that "shimano nexus inter-3 internal gear hub" it's sporting. THIS definitely isn't your typical "beach cruiser.") it probably also helps that it's european. dutch to be exact. & the way i see, almost everything is better when it comes from across the atlantic.

so, i have to admit - i've already cleared out a space in my garage, to park my new taga... sure, you might think i'm being a little overly optimistic. but, the way i see it, if i put enough positive vibes out there, then the universe, my fairy godmother, or maybe my extremely loving hubby will ensure that one arrives on my doorstop - with or without a big red bow. however, until then, i'll be saving my pennies. because with a price tag of $1495, it is definitely something i'll have to budget for. although, when you think about it - buying a nice double stroller (like my personal favorite, phil & teds' dash), a bike & a bike trailer, makes $1495 seem like a steal. do you think my hubby will buy that logic?

ps. don't believe me that you convert the BIKE to a STROLLER (& vice versa) in 20 seconds FLAT? watch this demo... she doesn't even break a sweat.

pps. if you've got an "in" with the universe, a fairy godmother, or even my hubby, will you put in a good word for me? the taga is definitely calling my name, & boy is she loud!

OH MY GOODNESS! That is genius! I totally need one, that is awesome. Can you put a good word out to the Universe on my behalf? And I'll do the same for you.

PS We miss Gavin.. AK is still convinced Gavin is "her one true prince, and we will get married, and I will wear a pink dress"
