Does your school run follow alongside a mountain bike trail or do you just want to hit some gravel on your way to the grocery store? Now you can with Yuba’s new Boda Boda Macho–designed for carrying cargo, including kids, on rugged trails.
The build and components on the Macho help add a bit of adventure to your everyday errands. The off-road cargo bike is both trail and city friendly as it is spec’d with WTB All-Terrain Sport 26 x 1.95 wheels, a SRAM X5 2×10 drivetrain, hydraulic disc brakes, and an all-aluminum frame decked out in Special Ops Black. It’s built around the Boda Boda chassis and includes a bell, side stand, wheel skirts, and the standard Yuba cargo rack allowing you to carry up to 220 pounds of cargo, including the option for an additional adult passenger or two children.
The Boda Boda Macho is available to order from the company website for a retail price of $2,099–I am guessing REI might eventually sell the Macho as well. The off-road cargo bike comes in one size, suitable for riders from 5’5″ to 6’6″. Compatible accessories include the Baguette, Bamboo Boards, Bread Basket, Child Seat, Deflopilator, Double Stand, Hold-Ons, Mini Monkey Bars, MultiUtility Deck, Pin Lock, Ring, and Soft Spot. The launch follows the 2015 release of the Spicy Curry, Yuba’s electric-assist bike (I need one of those for errands around Marin).
I can see all the parents in Eagle, Colorado getting one of these as thanks to the Singletrack Sidewalks initiative, they can ride from their driveways to town or their kids can ride from home to school—all on singletrack. Wouldn’t that be awesome.
