Dutch bike on steroids

My friend sent me this link to a Portland woman--and mother of six--who transports her entire family using a Dutch bakfiets. It's pretty incredible.

I've been dreaming of adding Dutch child seats to my own bike so I can run errands on bike with all 3 kids. This woman takes it to the next level, though. Click to read the article: With six kids and no car, this mom does it all by bike.

If you want a cargo bike but don't want the cost or weight of a bakfiets, I love these Madsen cargo bikes. Some day...

Do any of you ride a bakfiets, a Madsen, or other type of cargo bike? What do you like or dislike about it?
