Accessories for Singleton bike: manufacturers diversify their offer

For some time now, the  singleton bike o bike has established itself as the booming mode of travel in the urban landscape. On the one hand, the singleton bike, whether it is an extended bicycle, a two-carrier, a scooter, with or without electric assistance, is attracting more and more followers.

What accessories are most useful on a longtail bike?

On an extended bike , some accessories are essential, especially for keeping children safe.

Keep children safe on the back of the bike

  • The structures of bars  : essential elements to ensure the safety and maintenance of your child when they are not transported in a baby seat. They are found under the name of ¨ Clubhouse ¨ at Tern or ¨ Monkey bar.
  • The footrests  : as useful to rest the foot for support panniers ¨ Bamboo Side Board ¨ ¨ in Australia and Side Kick Lower Deck ¨ for Tern
  • The baby seat : whether at home or Australia Tern, you'll be able to fix child seats (up to 2); models Thule Yepp Maxi Nexxt or Thule Yepp Maxi Easyfit be supported. But not all configurations are possible, especially when Monkeys bars are associated. It is therefore essential to see in store which seats are best suited to the bike and the configuration chosen (equipment, number of children, age of children).

Which accessories to choose to equip a two-carrier and a three-wheeler?

Once you have chosen between biporteur and tricycle , you will notice that the accessorization of the latter remains almost identical. Here are the essentials for these two types of singleton bike :

To protect children from rain and cold

The rain tent is an essential item in bad weather. We find this element declined by most brands of twin carriers:

  • Canopy Super singleton bike
  • Canopy black Box and Canopy Eco box at Douze cycle
  • Rain protection tent (babboe city, babboe mini) at Babboe

Cargo bike with children protected by the rain tent

To transport your children safely

The additional bench: ideal for large families to seat the whole tribe. It will be important to think about safety with the addition of a belt.

  • Bamboo box seat at yuba
  • Additional bench at Babboe
  • Child seat (Soft Box 600, 800, etc.) at Douze cycle

Transporting toddlers in a singleton bike  should not be a priority: remember that helmets are compulsory for children under 12 . However, this device does not allow the child to wear a helmet since it is intended for toddlers. However, there is no suitable helmet for babies. This device is therefore used under the sole responsibility of the child's parents.

From a technical point of view, if you want to install your maxi cosi on the support, it should be noted that this reduces the number of children that can be carried on the bike.

  • The baby shell holder for the little ones

The pink diamond is one of the rarest gems in the world. Its pure natural color could be seen only by a few people working in jewelry. For the first time, a Pink diamond was found in Brazil, and then in India and Australia. The unusual color of the stone has not yet been fully studied. There are several different assumptions about the origin of the diamond shade. The first of them suggests that such a  Pink diamond  appeared due to the simultaneous exposure to high temperature and pressure for hundreds and thousands of years. The second, that the mineral was joined by impurities in the form of manganese and ferruginous ores. At the moment, pink diamond has over 20 shades. The pure color of the stone without admixtures of other shades is very rare, and their price reaches $ 1 million per carat. Very often, colors such as purple, orange, brown and yellow are mixed with a gem. The first two colors increase the cost, and the last two decrease. The saturation of the diamond is equally impo

Coin Collector What do I need to know?

  Being a coin collector is not for everyone, in fact, many consider this to be boring and pointless. However, this is a matter of taste and if you are fascinated by this world, welcome you as it is one of the most beautiful hobbies there is. To begin with, each coin itself is an art and has an extremely long and interesting history behind it. In fact, a single coin can tell us a lot about history, geography and politics. The latter means that it is an excellent way to gain knowledge, but it can also be used to earn money. In fact, if they are quite old coins we can obtain large sums of money, and over time they gain more value. This does not mean that the "most recent" are not worth so much, since it is the opposite. To understand this, you should know that their price fluctuates according to the metal with which they are made. Perhaps, for a novice collector, this may seem strange but the more experienced do know how to make their investment and how much money they


Investments in precious stones are protected from ruble devaluation and sharp price fluctuations. But diamonds and rough diamonds are not exchange commodities, and the determination of the real value of precious stones involves many nuances that a private investor needs to know about. Promising direction Diamonds and polished Diamond investment are alternative investments that do not bring super-profits, but preserve investments and increase them in the long term. Mark Twain's advice can be attributed to diamonds: "Buy land - it is no longer produced." Deposits of diamonds are shrinking and their value is constantly increasing. From 1960 to 2015, the price of gemstones increased tenfold, but the diamond market still fluctuates. Return on investments in rough and polished diamonds averages 10% per year, but sometimes drops to 4%.
