I ride all over town and I am not intimidated by hills anymore! Also the large Baguette Bags have been so great for riding with big bags of groceries.

IDEAL RIDER

A great bike for people who don’t have a car in the city and who want to carry heavy things. Great for moms who ride long distances with their kids.

OVERALL

I loved the bike and found it to be a nice, smooth ride and would bike for long distances. I loved the huge pannier bags and would carry a lot in them. The bike was a bit heavy and would fall over sometimes, but I did love being able to ride with my daughter.

    We went for a test ride and my son couldn’t believe that it didn’t have panniers (leaving him muddy when we had to cross a puddle. Surprised that Yuba hasn’t added them yet.
