Who we are
Ben started Yuba Bicycles out of a shipping container in Northern California putting together steel-frame, long-tail blue Yuba Mundos. Fourteen years later, supported by a whip-smart, passionate team in the U.S. and Europe, his aspirations are still the same: To better the planet by promoting the bicycle as an efﬁcient transportation tool.
A Champion canoeist and an experienced cyclist, he worked for many years in the water sports industry. He’s now in charge of the commercial and organizational development for Yuba Europe, and goes out of his way to promote the growth of bike use everywhere as an efficient mode of transportation.

Understated strength ! Franck is an expert in the bike industry thanks to his extensive experience (more than 20 years!) at Scott. Technical request ? Franck is our guy. He’s the one who coordinates and makes deliveries happen, making sure every client is satisfied. An accomplished cyclist with an adventurous mindset, Franck rides his Yuba (almost) everyday to the office – man and machine in perfect harmony!

Tio’s vision for the future is more treats, more furry friends in WoofTops and more cuddles!
