The Billy Bilsland Cycles Verdict: "Made for Kids, can be enjoyed by big kids too. The Makki Load is a fun, versatile e-cargo bike from Dutch masters Gazelle. Everything about the Makki screams simplicity and ease of use, from the uncomplicated cargo section to the ride quality. Easy to manoeuvre and a joy to ride, whether round the park or on city streets."
Makki has been designed with input from parents and children as the starting point. As a result, the Makki is no ordinary electric cargo bike, rather it is a cargo bike you and your children will derive a great deal of enjoyment from every time you use it. Safety and comfort have been given complete attention, for you and the kids. With a well-thought-out package of accessories, you can dare to replace your second car with a Makki. The front bench, the Maxi Cosi adapter, the adapter for a child seat and the storage drawer mean you can take everything with you. And the rain hood and cover protect you against all weather. Your kids sit safely and securely thanks to the high EPP box. Children can get on and off easily thanks to low step-through. Comes off the stand effortlessly. Iconic design, a bicycle you'll like to be seen on.
The Makki has a high box. A number of children can be very easily transported at the same time in this. The high construction increases safety while cycling. The recess in the middle of the box and the step allows children to easily get on and off. This provides extra convenience. The box is made from impact-resistant EPP and enhances the Makki's durability.
If you want to cycle off on the Makki, you first have to release the stand. No hard pushing or pulling is required: the stand is released with a simple foot movement. This is easy even if the box is full. Once you arrive at your destination, it is simple to then fold out the stand. Thanks to the twin-leg structure, the bike is very stable when parked.
Gazelle provides the Makki with a fine package of handy accessories. This makes the cargo bike a more than suitable replacement for a second car. The front bench set, the car seat adapter, the adapter for a child seat and the storage drawer means you can take everything and everyone with you. The rain hood and cover protects the passengers and things in the box against all weather conditions.

Every bike we sell is fully assembled and tested for safety by our trained mechanics. We then partly disassemble the bike and carefully re-pack to prepare for shipping.
Depending on the model, upon receipt you may be required to straighten and tighten the handlebars, reattach front wheel and attach the pedals. Please ensure that the pedals are greased and fitted correctly - the pedals will be marked L and R and have to be fitted to the left and right cranks respectively. Pedal do not come with every bike and need to be bough separately, especially on more high-end models. Please check when you are ordering.
There is a guide in the box telling you which tools you will need and the steps to follow. This will require some degree of mechanical skill to put together and can need some minor adjustments. The less confident you are in this field the more we'd recommend having it checked over by a professional mechanic.
