Fortune Cookie Philosophy

I never really thought about it...but hope (and would be flattered if) it is true. To read more in the fortune cookie philosophy series, click here.

Urban Simplicity.

This blog was one of the main things which persuaded me to take the plunge and buy my Yuba Mundo...

Dr. C...Thanks! The Mundo is awesome. I also just checked out your blog...nice as well. I've thought about getting a Kona Africa's the ride?

The Kona Africa Bike is a lot like a 'normal bike' version of the Yuba Mundo in many ways. It has a pretty good load capacity for a regular bike; being integrated into the frame means the rack can carry a lot more weight than an after-market rear rack. The downside of this is that the rack tubing diameter limits the choice of panniers which can be used somewhat. The fork also has a second set of eyelets for a front carrier or large basket too.

I ended up giving mine to my girlfriend, as much as I liked the Africa Bike, I liked my Raleigh Roadster more, and keeping them both for myself seemed a bit pointless. The upside is that she has been able to discover what it is like to ride a bike which is practical, comfortable and upright, which has really turned her on to cycling quite a bit more.
