You wouldn't want it stiff
I ordered my metrofiets 3 years ago and took possession of it 6 months later. I have one of the earlier frame designs. Since then I've ridden over 6000 miles on it. The longest ride has been about 40 miles. I've ridden in sunny weather, rain, snow, 100+ degrees and down to 20. I've brought home 3 Christmas trees. 20 bags of concrete in 4 bag trips. I take two kids to school most days. I hual other bikes on it. I hual groceries, recycling. And it fits kegs of beer well.

As for ride quality. I was able to ride it right away, but it took me about 10 miles to understand its quirks that all bikes have. My other bike is a brompton so I'm used to quirks.

Honestly the biggest problem I have with it is that it rides so well. My daughter cheers me to go faster, to catch the other cyclist or car. This gets me pumped up and I forget I'm riding an upright cargo bike, so when I take that turn too sharp and scrape the box on the corner I just think to myself how awesome it is to be ridding around in a giant cargo bike.

If you get on this bike thinking its like your $3000 carbon bike you will be disappointed. This is the bike to replace your minivan, but sportier.

Metrofiets...Amazing! http://momentummag.com/gear/bikes/cargo-bike-review-metrofiets-standard/ e6743e20-6925-11e3-ac26-1231380a02d9 Thu, 19 Dec 2013 19:22:04 GMT Mama cargo biker happy with the metro http://momentummag.com/gear/bikes/cargo-bike-review-metrofiets-standard/ 15888b38-6923-11e3-9c54-1231380a02d9 Thu, 19 Dec 2013 19:01:55 GMT I love my Metrofiets! It has needed very little maintenance, rides smooth, is a workhorse, and looks really stylish. I cant praise this bike enough.]]> http://momentummag.com/gear/bikes/cargo-bike-review-metrofiets-standard/ 2fb82140-6922-11e3-966f-1231380a02d9 Thu, 19 Dec 2013 18:55:29 GMT These bikes rock!
This is what I love about Metrofiets: their construction is top-notch and they come with high-end components installed. Sure, they are a bit pricer than some of the other options, but you really do get what you pay for - an awesome, all weather ride.

Frankly, I'm not sure that the comment from Zinguvok is legit. Anyone who has ever ridden a Metrofiets knows the high quality that I am talking about. These bikes look and ride like a dream!]]>
