The other day Priscilla and I decided to try out the Yuba Mundo. She actually ended up jogging while I rode the bike…about 6 miles so far. First thing I can tell you is that the Yuba is super smooth! It must be the steel…this baby glides through the streets.
Here’s Priscilla riding the Yuba.
I eventually jumped on the back. If you’re not careful, the rear tire will buzz off your package since there’s no board on the rack to protect you from wheel.
We traded places because I wanted to see if the frame would flex. We rode down the street with Priscilla as my passenger and tried zig zagging and to my surprise there was no flexing at all. But then again Priscilla isn’t all that heavy either…a bit over 100lbs.
Here’s another shot of the Yuba Mundo to help give you an idea on how long the bike is.
One thing I did find that I really liked about the Yuba Mundo was the geometry of the bike. It’s VERY comfortable, my arms were relaxed, I wasn’t leaning over too much…great for my back and its simply fun to ride. As time goes, we’ll be posting more observations and uses of the Yuba Mundo.
