What is the Mundo?

I am the very happy owner of a Yuba Mundo Cargo bike, a purpose-built, long-tail, heavy-duty bike that is built to be a serious replacement for a carbon-emitting vehicle. I'm learning more every day what a bike can do, and I'm becoming convinced that a cargo bike with an electric assist is a truly fantastic machine!

Just a quick update: The savings are starting to add up, only 26 days into the project and have saved over 10% of the cost of the bike (not counting the electric kit, need to update that).  Also, very impressed with the bike, the electric assist, and myself for riding about 125 miles in the last 3 days.  It's 38 miles a day round trip to work plus all the regular errands, and the system is working flawlessly!


  1. Hey DC, thanks for all the comments, I want to make the savings spreadsheet work better on the blog page, but in the meantime I hope it shows people that these bikes can pay for themselves. I'm hoping that the total cost for the bike will zero out in about a year.
