The foundation of your dream ride!

A custom Yuba Mundo is a great way to show off your personal riding style, from the look to the ride.  Here are some basic components to consider when building your Mundo:

– Yuba Mundo Frameset 

 – Rear Wheel – The Mundo’s rear drop-outs are 14mm, not 3/8″ (10mm).  So, you’ve got some options here:

  • Purchase a Yuba Mundo Rear cargo bike wheel.  This is the easiest and likely the cheapest way to go unless you already have a rear wheel.
  • Purchase a set of Yuba Axle Adapters.  These fit over the round axle and space a 3/8″ wheel in a Mundo dropout.
  • Find/Build your own wheel based on a BMX-style 14mm axle.  (You’re on your own here.)

Yuba Seat post (it’s an unusual size at 31.8mm x 500mm, so its easiest to get it from us)

You can purchase a seatpost from Yuba. Our seatposts are 500mm.  This is needed if you are over 6-feet tall.  Otherwise, you can purchase a 31.8 x 350-400mm from most bike shops.

Wheelskirts (if you ever are going to have children ride on the back, they’re required.)

We also strongly recommend these accessories:

– Utility deck  — You can make your own, but in case you’d rather not…

– Stand-Alone Kickstand — Nobody makes a stand like the “Stand-Alone”.  This kickstand ROCKS!

– Deflopilator — Keeps the front wheel straight when the bike is on the Stand Alone

And one more thing:
Mundo Chain (156 links!)

(Of course, there’s always the full line of Add-ons to trick out your new custom Mundo, such as the Bread Basket and the Go-Getter Bag.)
