Yuba Cargobikes New "Spicy Curry" E-Cargobike!

Yuba has just announced a brand new electric cargobike developed in conjunction with the e-bike experts at Currie Technologies and the final result, called the "Spicy Curry" looks fantastic.

From the Yuba press release -  

“The Spicy Curry is a smart transportation solution for families, tradesmen, entrepreneurs and small business owners who want to ride more, drive less, live healthier and lower their carbon footprint,” says Benjamin Sarrazin, founder and owner of Yuba Bicycles. “Shop for a week’s worth of groceries. Pedal kids to school. Lug your tools to the jobsite. Deliver pizzas. We designed the Spicy Curry to be the most practical, safe and powerful cargo bike on the market for the widest range of people. The strong rear rack is like the deck of a minivan or pickup truck that allows you to carry children, groceries, tools, packages or any large object that normally requires a car. The high-torque mid-drive motor from Currie Tech provides more power than other eBike drives on the market. Glide up hills and safely navigate city streets at 20-plus miles per hour without breaking a sweat. That’s spicy!" 

Green curry flavoured electric deliciousness!
3rd generation mid-drive electric system keeps the motor and battery weight way down low for very stable handling.
Expected availability is June 2015.

New Brand Announcement - Breezer Bikes

A little bit about Breezer, pulled from their FB site - 

Breezer is also the original US transportation bike brand, winning more "Editors’ Choice Awards" for their commuter bikes than all other bike companies combined. Breezer transportation bikes represent the pinnacle of modern transportation bike design.

Each and every Breezer today continues to be designed 100% by Joe Breeze. Applying over forty years of engineering and design expertise, Joe makes cutting-edge mountain bikes in carbon fiber, aluminum, and steel, and puts this same critical focus into Breezer transportation bikes that are fast, light, and fun. Joe Breeze - one of the last authentic innovators in the bike world today."

The Breezer Bicycle Company was founded in 1977 when Joe Breeze welded together the first ever mountain bikes. Since then, he has continued to exert a powerful force on the bicycle business creating standout bikes for the urban market too.

Breezer's range of urban bikes offer incredible utility, practical good looks, and a ride quality that is fun and sporty. Every Breezer transport bike we have on offer comes standard with (at minimum) full fenderset, sturdy kickstand, chainguard, rear luggage rack, and a bell - ding!

The bikes featured below are the models we will be offering but if there is something else in the line that tickles your fancy, let us know and we can check into ordering it in.

If you are looking for a new commuter/city/errand bike do yourself a favour and come test ride a Breezer Bicycle.

Downtown 8 Stepthrough. Classic steel frame and fork, 700c wheels, and Shimano's venerable Nexus 8 internally geared hub handles all the shifting duties. Will also fit studded tires for winter use.

Downtown 8 Stepover. All the same features as the Stepthrough but in a classy navy blue.

Uptown 7 Stepthrough. Lightweight aluminum frame and cromoly fork, Shimano's bulletproof 7-speed internally geared shifting system, 26" wheels, and dynamo powered front and rear lighting system - no batteries ever!
Uptown 7 Stepover. Same as the stepthrough model but in an understated olive green colour.
Is this the best out-of-the-box trekking/commuter bike? We think it could be. The Greenway Eilte rides on a lightweight aluminum frame and fork, wide-range 2x10 SRAM drivetrain, hydraulic braking system, "ERGON" brand grips, high quality dynamo powered lighting system, and a full compliment of fenders, rack, kickstand, and bell.
