The Yuba Spicy Curry, what a great name for an electric cargo bike.
The name is a play on words because this electric cargo bike has been developed with a partnership between Yuba Bicycles (cargo bike experts) and Currie Technologies (e-bike experts).
Yuba Bicycles is well known for their popular Mundo and Boda Boda cargo bikes that come in their traditional configuration or with electric assist.
The Spicy Curry is their new e-cargo bike that has been designed with the Currie Electro Drive 350 watt mid drive system so that it can haul heavy loads up steep hills.
Mid drive systems have ability to leverage the gears of the bike to climb steep hills in the lower gears and cruise up to 20 mph in the higher gears.
The Spicy Curry also offers a 20″ rear wheel (26″ front) to keep the cargo weight lower for better handling and stability. In addition the rear cargo rack can be adjusted to handle all sorts of loads: a flat rack for boxes or lower the side bars for carrying passengers and there many more possibilities.
