    It came with running boards, but I left them off for now to save weight. This thing is not a featherweight...

    Does the longer wheel base make the ride feel different?

    Judd, from my experience test-riding Grant & Gillian's Yuba- You are further forward on a longer wheelbase bike. If you turn sharply, as you might on a regular bike, you'll find the inside curb. Scrape.

    Depends on what makes the wheelbase long

    Not really. Harder to take sharp corners, but feels like a regular hybrid. I think itís shorter than a true longtail. The 2018 model is an aluminum frame, but itís a smooth ride overall.

    So, are you going to buy a baby trailer, two batteries, and dress them up as babies to get preferential treatment?

    I finally completed the build of the sweet Habanero Ti frame that I bought from hozn. I had a ton of analysis paralysis about buying the parts. And then once I got them I put most of it together but was too intimidated by installing the hydraulic brakes and the bike languished in the corner.

    Birru convinced me to bring it in to Conteís in Old Town to finish it up. Just got it last night.

    Yay!! It lives again!

    I really like that bike. And absolutely love the geometry, which is why my new Waltly frame is identical (just with thru axle and 44mm HT).
