A long long time ago, a young boy in Germany named the wooded area behind his house KOKUA. The fond memories of free play in "KOKUA" would become the name for the bike company that Rolf formed in 1997 as an adult with his wife, Beate. Kokua Bikes GmbH, of Roetgen Germany 52159 has been built across many years of continual progression. From the LIKEaBIKE wood series to the LIKEaBIKE aluminum "Jumper", and then to LIKEtoBIKE aluminum pedal bikes. Now we see the basic colors expanding to meet market requests and enhance the individuality of Kokua riders. After hours, Rolf creates beautiful ceramic bowls and Beate paints/ glazes them. What a team!
It's a nice coincidence that Kokua in the Hawaiian language translates to "help". Kokua Bikes are "helpful" bikes as LIKEaBIKE help children learn and love to ride, provide hours of gross motor development, and the LIKEtoBIKE pedal series help children with active transportation and athletic fun.
