Commuter options abound at Interbike
by Zach White
An encouraging number of casual around-town bikes and more serious commuter machines were shown at Interbike in Las Vegas this year. We also found a few good accessories that could improve your ride home from work now that the days are growing shorter.
Here is a look at some of the best we found.
Excerpt of the Boda Boda Cargo Cruiser review:
On the other end of the financial and weight scale of utility bikes from Bullitt comes Yuba’s brand new Boda Boda. With a price tag at $999 and weighing in at 35lbs, the aluminum bike is rated to carry 220lbs on its rear rack. It’s also one of the few utility bikes that offers a step-through frame model. The Boda Boda is available in medium and large sizes, with a claimed range between the two of 4’7”/140cm to 6’5”/196cm.
Another appreciated feature on such a long bike is that the ‘S’ downtube allows the front wheel to be turned 180-degrees, shortening the wheelbase enough to allow the Boda Boda to fit in a city bike rack much more easily.
