For those looking to leave the car at home, Yuba has some interesting new options for both cargo and kiddos. Cargo bikes can be awesome tools for carrying bulky items around on two wheels, but if you’ve ever tried to park one fully loaded, you know they can be a handful.
That’s where Yuba’s new Roots Double Kickstand comes in. Calling it the widest on the market with a 30″ stance, the Roots stand is meant to offer stability for a full load.
Even better, you don’t even have to get off the bike to deploy it thanks to the cable actuated hand lever up front. The unique design of the lever allows it to drop or raise the kickstand with the flick of the lever. Unfortunately for other cargo bikes, the Roots stand is only compatible with the Yuba Spicy Curry and Sweet Curry longtail cargo bikes. Sold as an accessory, the stand is priced at $200.
If you’re hauling around your kid on the back of your Yuba cargo bike, their new Pop Top looks like a cool accessory. Designed to offer all weather protection to your passengers, the Pop Top is compatible with any Yuba bike with their Adjustable Monkey Bars. The inside can be ventilated with zippered windows, or run with the side panels wide open as well.
Pop Tops will sell for $200.
Finally, if you don’t yet have a Yuba cargo bike, their new Kombi makes that an impressively affordable proposition. With prices starting at $999, the Kombi includes a one-size-fits-all steel frame and fork capable of carrying up to 440lbs (including rider). Technically, this bike has already been available in Europe since the fall, but now it’s making its U.S. debut.
Built with mechanical disc brakes, puncture resistance tires, and a 1×9 Shimano Altus drivetrain with an 11-40t cassette, the bike also includes Yuba’s Stand Together double kickstand, front and rear battery operated lights, a front fender and rear wheelskirt, and bell. Other accessories like front baskets, Monkey Bars, or child seats can be added to the build.
