Yes, another example of corporate greed which ends up with ordinary folk being seriously injured. Selling a product that you know will brake is bad, selling a product that you know will break in a very dangerous way - in this case it appears to be Babboe cargo bike - is truly shocking. I doubt that it will happen but the board of the company concerned should be asset stripped and in jail.
… the Dutch Food and Consumer Product Safety Authority (NVWA) ordered the company to stop selling its bikes due to safety risks. The organisation further stated that Babboe had received hundreds of reports about broken frames, but had failed to report them to the regulator despite being required to do so by law.
Don’t fret, it’s OK to: ride a simple old bike; ride slowly, walk, rest and admire the view; ride off-road; ride in your raincoat; ride by yourself; ride in the dark; and ride one hundred yards or one hundred miles. Your bike and your choices to suit you.

A further link to reports of this shocking behaviour: https://nltimes.nl/2024/02/15/babboe-or ... fety-risks
Babboe will have to stop selling cargo bikes for the time being by order of The Dutch Food and Consumer Product Safety Authority (NVWA).
I hope that the OP will modify his thread tittle to add the manufacturer’s name, someone searching the forum will want this information - well I certainly would.
