Yuba Mundo Build Complete

This morning I woke up extra early to get things finished on the Yuba Mundo. Two things I have to mention, this baby is all steel and its pretty heavy. Keep reading and you’ll see the dimensions below.

Here’s the final photos:

This thing has some beefy wheels, 48 spokes! That’s more than my tandem! The rims and spokes are mega thick compared to most bikes.

Rear axel are the kind you’d find on BMX dirt jumper bikes…really thick!

The rear rack was a pain to install. One of the legs of it wouldn’t align on the mounting bolt. So after a few minutes of pulling and pushing, I got it to fit just right.

Here’s a shot of how you could easily mount things onto the Mundo. I was looking at my Xtracycle bags/freeradical and saw that there might be a way to use those bags onto the Mundo. I’ll have to try it out show you folks.

All I used were these clips to attach things.

Here are the dimensions of the Mundo:

Bicycle size: One size fits all | Wheels: 26 Inches
Length: 210 cm (6.9ft) | Weight: 21 kilos (46lbs)
Cargo capacity: volume 1.05 m3 (33.3cft) | weight 200 kilos (440lbs)
Carrier size: length 80 cm (2ft 7″) width 22 cm (8.7″) Sideloaders: 54 cm (1ft 9″) 15cm (5.9″)

The side loader was wide enough to seat my big cooler on it. All I need to do is strap it down.

I did ride the Mundo a bit this morning and yes it’s pretty heavy, but then again its steel. This is what’s surprising though, the bike doesn’t feel heavy or too long when riding it. The bike handles much like a regular bike and its pretty darn smooth! We’ll be testing this thing out more and it will actually be a team effort. I’ll have the Mundo for a bit, then it will get some load testing with Russ who carries hundreds of pounds of camera equipment on his bike. We’ll keep you posted.
