Yuba:  Curry Series

Yuba: Curry Series

The Spicy Curry Series are Yuba’s lowriders, each designed to keep your rear cargo rack as close to the ground as possible. To achieve this, they tuck a 20″ wheel akin to a tough BMX bike’s wheel way back and below the height of the pedal stroke. It is a simple yet extremely effective solution, paired with a conventional 26″ front wheel Of the many advantages, a low rack is quite a bit easier for your little munchkins to clamber up on by themselves. You have improved stability over a high rear rack too, which works for any cargo you… Read more →

Yuba:  Supercargo Bosch & Classic Series

Yuba: Supercargo Bosch & Classic Series

Yuba’s Supercargo takes a decade of experience with Cargo Bikes in a whole new direction: up front! A frontal load keeps your cargo as low as possible and right where you can see it. This is particularly fun when your cargo is 99kg, giggling and/or jiggling about! It could be a couple of kiddo’s and a box of toys, a cello or a washing machine. You decide. The bay has a number of options as well: add the ‘rail & sail’, or bamboo box, as well as a pair of bamboo seats. Any cargo which can be strapped down securely… Read more →

Bicicapace:  Compact Classic Series

Bicicapace: Compact Classic Series

This beautifully modern bicycle blends function with pizzazz, to create a thoroughly practical and agile option for everyday use. Having a short wheelbase can really help for parking indoors, so the Compact measures between 168-176cm long, depending upon which model you choose. The two frame options are the Classic and the Sport. The Classic is a ‘one size fits most’ step-through frame, suiting smaller riders and sharing between family members. The Sport has a step-over frame which comes in a 56cm, with the 64cm to suit taller riders. Both styles can fit a Steco Rear Rack behind the rider and/or… Read more →

Bicicapace:  Justlong Series

Bicicapace: Justlong Series

Italian style comes in many forms and the Justlong from Bicicapace is a lowrider with a difference: it is as nippy as it is rigid, whilst keeping the weight down ensures your family and cargo are stable as you ride together. The curvaceous frame flows between the massive bag up front which keeps school bags, shopping and laptops dry, with a combination of bench seats for up to three kiddos, two in dedicated seats, or one large box on the longtail. You can switch from one to the other as you require too, refining as your needs grow. In the… Read more →

City Cycling: Health Versus Hazard? Cities Compared Internationally.

© Sarah Maycock/Handsome Frank http://mosaicscience.com/story/city-cycling-health-versus-hazard Are the fitness benefits of riding your bike worth the risk of an accident? Lesley Evans Ogden takes a tour of seven cities on two wheels to find out. It was just another morning commute. That is, until a bus driver ran a red light, turned right, and drove straight into Ann-Doerthe Hass Jensen. The bus knocked the social worker off her bike, trapping her underneath, a wheel pinning down and crushing her left foot. It was a school bus heading to a Copenhagen kindergarten, and the children aboard were screaming. Ann was rushed to… Read more →
