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.
