Don’t want a car but can’t get by with just a bike? Meet Yuba Bicycles, a company that sells bikes with motors.
The company markets the bike for “carrying large objects or passengers greater distances than possible on a regular bike.”
Said founder Sarrazin, “The BionX is really helpful when in traffic or setting out from a red light because it gets you up to cruising speed quickly.” He added: “If you live atop a hill it allows you to pedal up with a full load while barely breaking a sweat.”
The steel-frame bike has an extra long wheel base and 21 speeds. The integrated rear rack lets you load on gear, groceries, or children needing a lift.
Sounds pretty awesome! But does it count for Charity Miles? Hmmm.
