Many urbanites are choosing to use a cargo bike to haul their everyday essentials instead of a car and the Yuba Supermarche is one that is both practical, and aesthetically pleasing.
The two-wheeler is essentially the sports-utility-vehicle of bikes. It can haul up to 300 lbs plus a rider and can be customized for whatever kind of cargo option makes the most sense in the user's life. Its wheel base is nearly eight feet long and its 20 inch wheels have been widened for extra stability. A 24-speed traditional drive-train is more than enough for hilly urban areas but an electric assist can be added for when its too tough to grind out a hill. The base model includes brackets to attach a child seat or clip-on cargo bags so it can function as a family vehicle.
As more and more cities implement bicycle-positive infrastructure, cargo bikes like the Yuba Supermarche will become more adaptable for urban life.
