Like our friends at BikePortland.org were saying in a recent article, Portland's cargo bike scene is exploding.
It's not hard to see why. More and more people are looking to get out of cars because of high gas prices, wanting to be more active, environmentally conscious, or just to get some fresh air. But those good intentions can go by the wayside when you have things to haul and it feels like a car is your only option... Enter the cargo bike. Built to handle your kids, your groceries and that steal you couldn't resist at the garage sale you just peddled past; cargo bikes are a great solution.
The benefits of electric assist when you're hauling more weight are easy to understand and the Stoke Monkey is the perfect compliment to the Yuba. The Stoke Monkey transmits it's power through your drive train (your gears) allowing it to clime hills with loads that would bog down hub motors.
Stoke Monkeys have conquered hills as steep as 28% (think Olympic Ski Slope). If you are not climbing the alps - or even if you are - the Stoked Yuba has the power to move you, your kids and/or your cargo whenever the road takes you.
