My mother excitedly shared this article titled “Families Ditch Cars For Cargo Bikes” with me this morning. It’s true, a year ago I could see someone zip by on a Bullitt and name names. Now, there are so many of us out here! And growing. I myself can’t decided if I love the Yuba Mundo more or the Bullitt because they are different bikes for different lifestyles and styles of ride. Honestly, I’m just glad a publication took the time to unpack the difference between a longtail and a bakfiet. It’s surprisingly confusing when you explain it to people. I also have to appreciate the fact that this is one of the few non bike-centric publication to feature Cetma Cargo. Their bikes are absolutely gorgeous. Personally, they don’t make a lot of sense for a courier. However if I were a suburban cargo mom, I would be sold!
Here’s an except from the article
