    Two upgrades that really improved the ride quality of my v3 were Salsa Gordo rims and the Surly BD fork. I went from hating the the stock 2.125" Kendas to having no problem with them at all after changing to the Gordos.

    That looks very good. And I feel suitably ashamed that mine is still a frame in the shed !

    Hi, I bought a Yuba Mundo v4 bike a week ago. The bike is great, I love it
    I have done few rides on it and - what is not good - there are already some scratches The first group of them is from the chain. On a rough road, the chain bumps up and down and damages the frame I think this will be solved by a transparent sticker.
    Other scratches are on the outer parts of the frame, mainly on the tube which serves as a footrest. Bicycle parking in my work is along the wall, so sometimes the bike touches the wall ... Maybe some wrapping of the outermost parts will help.
    Do you also have these problems? How did you solve them? Thanks.

    Helicopter tape is your friend.
    I have put this on all the high wear areas of my bike including to top tube where I keep scuffing it when I get on. Paint on the Yuba is not the best tbh....

    Agree that the paint is the bikes worst feature. Powder coating would be a huge improvement. But that takes expensive powder, and energy to run the oven, yuba uses cheap paint applied by cheap labor.

    My new Mundo at first test-ride!


    Unfortunately it was hard to get it built up this far:
    - the disc tab was not in line with the disc
    - finding a disc adapter was tough...
    - the rear wheel always moved within the dropout
    - the chain touches the frame very often (on top and bottom)

    But at least I got most of the problems solved so far and could start a first ride ....

    Next I'll add some fenders, a chain guide, a child seat and some boxes or bags. And possibly a skateboard deck on top of the rack.

    These look very nice, hopefully I can take a trip to Galveston,tx and check some out at the Island Cycle Co., I'd like to build one from the ground up as well and use up some spare parts.

    The headtube of my V4 is 17.5cm. So 21cm should work (assuming a threaded fork).

    I have the newer v4 with threadless...? The fork might be a bit short?

    It's definitely too short for threadless.

    My wife has lots of health issues and can't pedal her own bike, so we picked up a Mundo this summer and have had an absolute blast with it!! With her on the back, it is our to the store, to the microbrewery, out to dinner, church on Sundays, you name it......all-around vehicle.
    We have it decked out with the stoker bars, soft spot cushion for her rear, bread basket front rack, running boards, a soft trunk with panniers on the rear rack (for hauling goods and serves as a back rest for my wife). Once I have enough posts to post pics, will do so.
    We absolutely love this bike and it's capabilities.

    Yesterday, the first longer ride with my daughter - I think she really enjoyed it!

    Compared to riding with the kiddy trailer it feels a lot quicker and more agile and we have much more contact and can talk to each other (although its often rather a monologue than a real talk considering the few words she can speak actually )

    No, we have the Ron-powered version.
    There have been a few hills we have hit that I wished for a little "boost" but overall I prefer pedaling for my own health benefit.

    Here is mine now prepared & ready for winter. Using 3" tyre on the back now so that I can use all the gears...



    70mm, so, ok, this is now a half fat, but now I have all gears again *;D





    Trying out the pogies & front rack added



    Pretty much sorted for bikepacking duties *;D

    If anybody is still looking for an inexpensive stoker stem for the Yuba:

    FSA OS120 Road Stem

    This is a 1 1/4" Stem so it fits the 31.8mm seatpost of the new Yubas just fine!
