Portlanders: Joe Bike *versus* Yuba?
It was weird enough when Joe Bike edited their website to say that the Yuba Boda Boda had been "discontinued". Now, Joe Bike notes that it's dropping Yuba entirely -- http://www.joe-bike.com/bikes/cargo-...yuba-mundo-v4/ notes "We were one of the very first Yuba dealers and, for the past three or four years, the largest Yuba dealer in the world, outselling even shops with a dozen locations. Despite this, we’ve severed our ties with Yuba and are not selling either of their models anymore."
Yes, even as http://www.joe-bike.com/bikes/cargo-bikes/ continues to trumpet "Yuba Mundo: The champ. The longtail of choice for stable riding with heavy loads: stable and serene past 200 lbs. on the back; frame rated for 440 lbs. of cargo plus rider. The more you use it and the more thoroughly you use it, the more it distinguishes itself among the pack. That’s why the Mundo is the only cargo bike personally owned by Joe Bike staff. In fact, the ratio of staff-owned Mundos to staff is 1.5 to 1!"
Does anybody here know what's going on?
