Don't Let the Heat Get You Down, Lighten Up August 10 2016
With this oppressive heat and humidity we got going on here in Philadelphia the last thing we want is heavy. Here are a few light weight products that won't drag you down. The Abus Granit Futura Mini lock is featherweight compared to it's welterweight cousins but still as strong. Nutcase added it's Metroride line of helmets as a lighter alternative to their Street Helmet. Super lightweight and with a slim profile you'll forget you have it on (but don't worry you still do; your head is protected.) GoCycling's sweat-wicking cycling cap is gossamer. And with it's Philadelphia graphics you'll be representing the City Of Brotherly Love in the coolest possible way. Think all cargo bikes literally weigh a ton? The Boda Boda V3 by Yuba is one of the lightest compact cargo bikes on the market. Starting at 41lbs (before add-ons) it can easily be lifted up steps to store indoors where it's safest. The newest version can now hold two Yepp Maxi Easyfit kid seats on the back and there's still room for one Yepp Mini up front. That's three kids you can haul around town on this zippy bike.
