Who we are

Benjamin Sarrazin


Ben started Yuba Bicycles out of a shipping container in Northern California putting together steel-frame, long-tail blue Yuba Mundos.  Fourteen years later, supported by a whip-smart, passionate team in the U.S. and Europe, our aspirations are still the same: To better the planet by promoting the bicycle as an efficient transportation tool.

Yuba Team Justin

Justin Gottlieb

Director of Sales & Marketing
With more than 15 years in the bicycle industry, Justin has a wide range of experience with premium brands and events in the cycling industry. He’s a college football junkie, loves watching his daughters compete at soccer and taekwondo, and can be found riding his road bike up and down the So Cal coast on most weekends. His favorite way to commute around town? Aboard a Supercargo CL with his youngest daughter keeping him company.
Dan Profeta Yuba Bicycles

Dan Profeta

Operations Manager
Dan joined the Yuba team after 11 years owning and operating a local bike shop in Southern California. Being a lover of all things on wheels, Dan mostly enjoys riding MTB, gravel, and if you can talk him into it, the occasional road ride. If he could be anywhere in the world right now, it would be in the eastern Sierra Nevada mountains riding bikes, snowboarding, or soaking in the hot springs. Dan’s favorite bike in the line-up is the Electric Mundo, which carries the family on the weekends.
