Tired of Online Dating? Maybe you Need Some Two-Wheeled Love


Tired of Online Dating? Maybe you Need Some Two-Wheeled Love
June 27, 2012 – Sausalito, CA

Is there anything more annoying to a concupiscent cyclist than realizing that the hottie they’re about to leave with doesn’t have a bike and is expecting them to walk twenty blocks? In the rain? When there’s a bike at hand ready to ride?
Today, Yuba Bicycles revealed their solution to help bike lovers get where they need to go, in style. The newly launched Boda Boda Cargo Cruiser, takes its name from the ubiquitous bicycle taxis in Africa that reunite lovers separated by distance. Similar to its namesake, Yuba’s Boda Boda Cargo Cruiser is no lightweight when it comes to hauling. Giving a friend a lift or scoring a couple of flats of strawberries at the farmer’s market – this aluminum bike neatly fills the gap between classic townies and mega-hauler cargo bikes.

“We are committed to designing and manufacturing bikes for ordinary people to ride everyday.” Said Leif Bansner, one of Yuba’s designers. “We wanted to make a bike that would enable people to get their kid to school, take someone out on the town or pick up a week’s worth of groceries, yet still be light enough to carry upstairs to an apartment.”

The Boda Boda Cargo Cruiser has an MSRP of $999, and will be available to consumers in July. An electric version will be available and retails for $2,697.

Yuba Bicycles has been producing bicycles and accessories designed for everyday trips since 2006. Yuba’s first offering, the Yuba Mundo cargo bike is loved by parents and entrepreneurs seeking carbon-free transportation. The electric elMundo has enabled people to go further, faster, and transport more cargo by bicycle. The addition of the Boda Boda Cargo Cruiser to the line enables Yuba to offer bicycles designed for everyday transportation to riders with modest cargo needs and limited bicycle storage.
