Other comments: Obviously, the whole point of a cargo bike is to load it like a pack mule. Because you have to load one side at a time, it’s easy for the bike to tip over. The double kickstand allows the bike to stay stable and upright as you pack it with whatever it is you want on the back of your bike – whether it’s bags of groceries or a box full of mason jars. The double kickstand is also extremely helpful and a major safety bonus when you are using your Boda Boda to transport children, particularly in the peanut shell baby seat. The bad news is that you can only use this Yuba kickstand on a Yuba bike. However, if you can find a double stand for your bike, I’d strongly recommend it.
