Rumor Mill: Taga Drops Its Chain? Or Just Switching Gears?

Ruh, roh, family biking fans…  We’ve covered Taga Bikes a bunch on GaGaGear, and recently learned that the convertible bike-to-stroller pioneer is notcurrently out of stock” (as indicated on their web site) – they’ve hit pause as a business, awaiting new ownership.

From a partner at Taga, in response to our email:  “Taga is not out of business.  The company is changing owners and the production is currently on hold until the complicated transition is complete.  In the meantime we provide support to our existing customers.”

That there is new ownership in the wings is most likely good news for Taga fans – certainly better than the alternative.  We’re hoping new management brings their stroller-bike transformer concept out here to Portland Oregon!  Portland would absolutely embrace these sort of bikes.  Though recent U.S. economic news might mean some belt-tightening around the nation, you’d never know it from the popularity of bakefiets in our town.  (Check out our favorite family cycle shop Clever Cycles, which just expanded its space for the third time in four mostly recessionary years!)

GaGaGear thanks The Rumor Mill for the tip, and the fine folks at Taga for the swift explanation.  Good luck to all!

Telling a customer that bought a 1500€ “toy” that there´s no stock for a second seat (as published in all their marketing material) is far from “supporting existing customers” I think. The new owner deserves all the candid people that bough this stroller to send them back for a refund…
