And that news is wonderful timing because there are a couple of great cargobikes about to hit the market that are really Vermont ready. Yuba just announced it's mid-drive longtail called the Spicy Curry. What's different about he Spicy Curry is that it has a powerful mid-drive motor. Mid-drive systems are generally more efficient than regular hub motors.
To create this bike, Yuba has teamed up with Currie Technologies. A bike like this is really a sign of the times. More families are liking the cargobike idea and are now asking for bikes that can climb the hills of San Francisco or the mountains of Vermont. This model also has the option for a cargo rack in the rear or can be the kid hauler like you see above.
