Boda Boda FAQ

Can I install pedal assist?

Yes! Over 70% of our bikes eventually have pedal assist systems installed. Whether front or rear hub motor or bottom bracket-mounted mid-drive, the Boda Boda is ready to be converted to the system of your choice. We’ve even provided extra room under the rear deck to mount a battery; check out our battery bracket for an easy mounting option.

Here is an example of our elBoda Boda that we build with the BionX pedal assist system:

What are the differences between the SO & the ST versions?

The main differences between the Step Through and Step-Over frames are a few key measurements, allowing a wider range of people to fit the bicycle. As you can see in the chart below, the Step-Through has a shorter reach from the saddle to the handlebars, a shorter steer tube and a much lower top tube which creates the step-through portion of the frame.

How much assembly is necessary?

Our bikes are shipped about 85% assembled and securely packed. When your bike arrives, final assembly and tuning should be performed by a qualified bicycle mechanic to ensure the safety of both the rider and passenger(s). The mechanic should have experience with headset bearing assemblies, derailleur systems and either rim or disc brake systems.

Can the Boda Boda have multiple front chainring for better gearing?

Yes, it’s definitely possible to add multiple chainrings and a front derailleur to the Boda Boda. The following are the stock specs for its bottom bracket:

Do you have Monkey Bars for the Boda Boda?

We do not currently make Monkey Bars for the Boda Boda, but it’s possible to convert the Mundo’s Monkey Bars for use on the Boda Boda’s shorter deck. You can find the step-by-step process and materials list.

Serial Number location?

The serial number of your Boda Boda (or elBoda Boda) can be found under your bike stamped into the bottom bracket shell between the pedals.
