Summary of Reviews
We have read all expert and user reviews on the Yuba Spicy Curry. In summary, this is what cyclists think.
21 reasons to buy
- At 60lb and able to haul a 330lb payload, the Curry is relatively lightweight.
- A 20” rear wheel and mid-mounted motor make for a low centre-of-gravity.
- The Bosch Performance CX 250 motor handled owners' required duties.
- The low height of the rear rack makes it easier to load and unload.
- Oversized, aluminum tubing maintained stiffness under heavy loads.
- The tough, chromoly fork features a beefy 1.5 inch steerer tube.
- The Curry features a low standover height for easy mounting and dismounting.
- A gigantic, integrated rack is rated to carry up to 300lb of cargo.
- Owners reported that the Curry was durable after 3 years and 2,000mi of use.
- A 36V Powerpack 400 battery lasted one family for a week of small trips.
- The Bosch Drive system has 4 modes, including a ‘turbo’ setting for climbs.
- The control unit switches between modes and displays mileage and other info.
- A low-power motor-assist mode helps walk a loaded bike up ramps &c.
- A bolt-on bashplate protects the Bosch motor from impacts.
- Shimano M396 hydraulic brakes with 180mm rotors stopped powerfully.
- The Shimano drivetrain and Deore shifters responded well and proved durable.
- The stem and seatpost adjust to fit riders from 5’ to 6’5” in height.
- Full-length fenders and internally-wired front and rear lights come included.
- After 3 years use, one owner reported a single flat tire and one dropped chain.
- Rear-wheel covers prevented kids’ feet from getting trapped between spokes.
- A ‘deflopilator’ prevents the front wheel from tilting while the kickstand is up.
7 reasons not to buy
- For one rider, the chain-guide came loose and contacted noisily with the chain.
- The asking price gets the base bike. Necessary accessories add to the cost.
- It’s difficult to squeeze into a lift, for apartment dwellers without a garage.
- An owner said their headlight shut off when hitting potholes or large bumps.
- The smaller frame felt cramped for some taller riders.
- A rare 1.5” steerer means replacement stems can be hard to find.
- The rear tire needed to be inflated to 55psi to handle loads, creating a jarring ride on rough surfaces.

Conquer Hills And Ikea With The Yuba Spicy Curry Electric Cargo Bike
For anyone who hauls stuff around on a regular basis, this bike is like having a small pickup truck.
Yuba Spicy Curry Bosch Review
They’ve ‘overbuilt’ this to be extra-sturdy… Being a two-wheel cargo bike… this feels a little easier.
I Love Spicy Curry: 2,000 Miles on a Yuba Cargo Bike
I now have almost 2,000 miles on the Yuba Spicy Curry e-assist long-tail cargo bike… in the four months or so that I have been riding it, I haven’t regretted the purchase for a minute.
Shhhhhhh! I Ride an e-Bike
This bike was a game changer for our family. This kid/grocery hauler could replace a second car for 8 months of the year where we live.
