New: Yuba Supermarché and Sweet Curry


Yuba is jumping into the frontloader market with the new Supermaché model. Built from aluminum, its two-piece frame can come apart for storage or shipping, and it keeps the weight of the full bike under 60 pounds.

The steering operates by a double redundant cable system that relies on a double-ended brake cable. The tab you see on the fork is from an early linkage-driven steering prototype. When it goes on sale next summer it will be available with a modular box system build from marine-grade plywood or a set of soft-sided carriers. Naturally kids seats will be available both front and back.


While Yuba said an e-bike version will probably eventually happen, for now it is equipped with a simple 1×8 drivetrain, though you can add a front derailleur if you’d like. Look for it to sell for $2,599.


The Sweet Curry is a spinoff of the Spicy Curry e-bike model we sampled last year. Essentially the same bike, it eschews the motor for a 2×9 drivetrain to keep the price down to $2,199. Unlike Yuba’s other longtail bikes, it shares the 20-inch rear wheel with the Spicy Curry to keep the payload weight down as low as possible.


Look for the Sweet Curry to go on sale in the spring.
