ikea run with junko

I`m used to using the Yuba Mundo to haul folding bicycles to and from "Yokohama Rides and Rentals" customers, so I knew the bike could handle some heavy loads, but I wasn`t so sure about this almost 6 foot long carpet!

However, as soon as, I got on the bike I knew it wouldn`t be a problem.  Even with half the weight of the carpet jutting out behind, the bike was remarkably stable. Got a lot of stares from passing motor traffic on the way home - but that is part of the fun IMO!

Kids, folding bikes, mega amounts of groceries, cargo, all of the above simutaneously - where there is a will there is a way with the Yuba! I am starting to believe that there is almost nothing this bike can`t handle.

Via Flickr:
btw - the side go getter bag was loaded up with about 10 kg of stuff. The carpet on top weighed about 25kg and was about 180 cm long.

Business has been (surprisingly) good at Yokohama Rides and Rentals this Winter, and we`re definitely looking forward to making lots of Carryme rental bike deliveries as well as organizing some tours as the weather gets warmer(especially during Cherry Blossom viewing season), which should begin around March 31.

After March 15th, bikes will be available to rent for the low low price of only ¥1500 per day weekdays and ¥2000 per day weekends. We offer free delivery of the bike to your hotel(or anywhere else convenient to you in Yokohama).

You can contact me at if you have any questions or would like to make a reservation.
