The Yuba Spicy Curry Bosch is an aluminum long-tail cargo bike powered by the high performance Bosch CX Drive motor and designed for carrying kids or cargo well.
Functionality is key with the Spicy Curry Bosch - from the light weight, responsive aluminum frame, to the super low rear rack which will stabilize the ride with heavy cargo, to the adjustable stem to help the bike fit a range of riders.
In addition to the wide range of family and cargo accessories, the Spicy Curry comes, out of the box, ready for urban riding with lights, fenders, protective wheelskirts, and even mounts for Yepp child seats built into the racks (no adapters needed).
In our opinion, the Spicy Curry Bosch is a perfect solution for San Francisco one or two-kid families. It will work great as an around town bike with its narrow profile and familiar handling. As a kid carrier, you can put two toddlers (in child seats) or two bigger kids (with optional Monkey Bars accessory).
What makes this bike different from the Xtracycle EdgeRunner?
The drive system on the Yuba is higher torque than the Xtracycle EdgeRunner, providing better hill climbing performance.
The one-sized aluminum frame on the Yuba may not fit the tallest of riders, and will provide a more rigid ride feel than the Cromoly EdgeRunner, which is available in two sizes.
Both brands offer a range of optional family and cargo accessories, but the Yuba comes with lights and fenders included - with Xtracycle those items are extra.
