Why cargo? So you can carGO! My Yuba Mundo is arguably the most versatile bike that I own. It can drastically reduce your use of an automobile. It rides exceptionally well unloaded, so much so that you will all but forget you're on a long wheelbase bike. Carrying children and other substantial loads are handled with aplomb. Sure, it can take a little while longer to get the steed up to speed and yeah, you may have to build up the stamina to make the biggest hills, but overall...it's just like riding a bike!
Don't quite need the full long tail for your needs? The Boda Boda is a shorter tail version built with the same utility spirit. They are both great bases for all of the accessories that Yuba offers to personalize your bike to your needs. Yuba makes quality accessories that are built to last, just like their bikes. Both models also have an electric option, so you can go further and bigger with pedal assisting watts.
Everyone I encounter when I'm out on the Yuba Mundo is intrigued with the bike. It seems to relax people and they become more social and ask lots of questions. They all smile. It's a great social tool. Like any bike, it connects you with your surroundings, but this one seems to really bring out the conversation like no other. However, some people seem intimidated by it, as if it's not attainable for them. It really is just like riding a bike though. If you can ride a bike, you can ride a cargo bike, and I bet you ride more than ever before, because it can replace trips in your automobile just as easily as it can cruise around the neighborhood. Next time you see me out around town, let's talk. You need to take the Mundo for a spin. It's time to carGO!
Rider or is it writer?
