Yuba Boda Boda

A bike that can carry stuff is a useful bike.  A bike that can carry a whole lotta stuff is a whole lotta useful. The Yuba Boda Boda is a whole lotta lotta useful.

Cargo bikes are well-established as a great option for those who wish to live carfree. The problem with cargo bikes is that they’re heavy. You wouldn’t want to lug them up and down a flight of stairs. Yuba tackled the flight-of-stairs problem with the Boda Boda by making the frame from lightweight aluminum and more compact than the typical cargo bike. In 2012, Outside Magazine named it the best $1,000 utility bike.

Oh, and we can add the Boda Boda to Edwin's list of bikes that come with dynamo lights.  The Boda Boda LUX comes with Shimano dynamo-powered Spanninga LED headlights and taillights.

Here is my 2013 write-up on the Boda Boda.

Honorable Mention: Yuba Mundo.  The Mundo is a full-fledged cargo bike that David wrote about back in 2008, and Tom did an update on in 2010.
