Yuba's Boda Boda bike is officially here and released and there's a lot to like. According to what I've read so far, it was designed to provide "everyday transportation to riders with modest cargo needs and limited bicycle storage." It's a pretty good bet that this bike will be popular and the fact that both models have a much lower top tube is a huge plus for the shorter folks like myself.
There are two colors available and two different frames. Above is the step-through model, I was glad to see the Peanut Shell will still work on this bike, and below you can see both bikes, with the beautiful vibrant green model in the foreground. Notice those cork grips and plush saddle, looks pretty classy, hey?
If, and it's a big IF, I was to be able to afford one of these bikes I would probably get two panniers, add the optional bamboo fenders and a front basket. Of course I'd need another double kickstand too. It adds up for sure, but this bike has a pretty affordable MSRP of $999 (electric version, available soon at $2,697 - I would LOVE that up-grade!)
It sure is a pretty bike and I hope I'm able to get one. Of course the Mundo would be staying with us too, Kyle would ride it as his bike and as much as I'm reluctant to hand over my beloved steed, at least I could still enjoy it from afar and take it out when I plan to carry a ton of cargo.
I know it's odd fro me to have a blog post full of "other" people on bikes- but I had to share these great pictures, I hope everyone enjoys seeing the new bike as much as I did.
