Black Mambas

Indian and Chinese made cruisers, known as Black Mambas in East Africa, are the most common type of bicycle found throughout sub-Saharan Africa. With an affordable price and spare parts widely available, Black Mambas have become the mainstay for rural (and urban) transportation in Africa. While affordable, they need frequent repair and suffer flat tires (punctures) on a regular basis. 

Baisikeli Ugunduzi has designed the Milele Tube to fit 28 x 1 1/2" wheels used on Black Mamba bicycles. They work great for people who use their Black Mamba as a boda boda (bicycle taxi), to commute to and from work, and to carry heavy loads.
