Yuba Cargo Bicycles!
Super Useful and Super Fun Bikes now in Auckland
Originating in the USA, Yuba has become known for their colourful, fun, affordable and user-friendly cargo bicycles with a fantastic range of accessories that make their bikes so useful. Yuba is imported into New Zealand by the Bicycle Junction in Wellington. The Electric Bicycle Hub Auckland (that’s us!) retails Yuba cargo bikes with a range of models and accessories on the floor and ready to roll. Come on in for a ride and put the whole whanau on board. We just love how they make everyday activities easy, whether that’s dropping an adult off at the train station, picking up the kids and stopping for groceries on the way home or picking up a wedding’s worth of beer and wine!
The Accessories for the Yuba really complete the picture. Going through each accessory you can see that they’ve really thought about the barriers to using bicycles in places like Auckland where infrastructure is patchy. There’s something just so fulfilling about finding that there is a purpose-built accessory to do the things that we used to have to knock up ourselves. It’s like finding out that we’re not so strange after all! Example – want your kids to be able to enjoy riding their own bicycles, but not all streets are safe enough or the distance from school to home is too far for them? Yuba has a ready to go accessory (the towing tray) that lets you tow their bikes while they’re not riding them. Arrive at the safe bicycle paths/parks and they can hop off your bike and ride their own! Or – want to carry three kids on your bicycle but there’s inadequate bicycle parking at home or at work for a box-bike? No problem, the Yuba is no wider than a normal bicycle and the Yuba monkey bars will cram them all in!
Yuba bicycles are compatible with Yepp child seats.
Yuba cargo bike models
Most famous for their Yuba Mundo long tail cargo bicycle in trademark Tangerine, Yuba now has many cargo bicycles including:
– The Yuba Mundo V4 is the staple of the Yuba range and is the cargo bike that made them famous. It’s light, affordable and tough as nails, with a 200kg load carrying capacity! Available in Tangerine and Black from $1999. We convert this one to electric using the awesome eZee electric conversion kit. While we are at it, we add top-end hydraulic disc brakes and puncture proof Schwalbe Marathon Plus tyres. The whole package comes to $5499.
The Yuba Spicy Curry is Yuba’s factory fit electric long-tail cargo bicycle. Drawing elements from the Yuba Mundo with the long back end and great accessories, it also uses a smaller rear wheel to drop the height of the cargo tray, making kid-carrying so much easier! It is powered by the Currie Electric Drive mid motor with a powerful 48V battery, making hill climbing a breeze! We have the Yuba Spicy Curry on our showroom floor in Auckland for test ride and purchase, at $5995.
– The Yuba Mundo V5 (chromoly steel) came out in 2016, offering a higher quality frame (stronger, lighter and with better finishing), a Shimano hub dynamo lighting system and better components throughout, including tektro hydraulic disc brakes and Schwalbe Big Ben tyres. Available in Metallic Gold or Army Green. It retails for $2999 in New Zealand. We do not have this model on the floor but you are welcome to try the Yuba V4 and we can talk you through the differences.
