Since the release of the Mundo V3 (fall 2009), upgrading to disc brakes has been available*. Although the V-Brakes provided with the Mundo provide excellent stopping power, the Mundo comes with disc-ready hubs and disc-brake mounting tabs so that riders can install disc brakes as an option.
The following adapters and disc rotor sizes are required to upgrade the Mundo to disc brakes.
Front: 160mm rotor and 160mm front adapter** (standard)
Rear: 180mm rotor with 140mm rear adapter (Mundo specific configuration)
* valid for Mundos with serial #AD00100001-AD00100230 (under the kickstand plate)
**Installing rotors larger than 160mm not recommended and voids the Yuba warranty.
Yuba Bicycles recommends the following disc brake kits:
• Tektro Io Disc Brake kit. Our price: $130 (not pictured here, but available at the Yuba Web Store)
• We do offer the 160/140mm caliper adapter so you can purchase the disc brake kit of your choice (from a local IBD) and still make sure the pads are going to achieve 100% pad contact with the disc.
