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!

OK, day 5 of the 30 days of biking in the bag.  10 miles today testing out the new electric assist kit on the Mundo.  400 watt hub motor in the front by Ezee (same as on the El Mundo from Yuba), 36V, 20Ah battery from Ping.  What an awesome ride!  From my place 5 miles almost all uphill to Leicester, no problem, big ring all the way :-)  I'm thinking of re-naming this blog "Me and Mr. Ping".  For the geeks out there: 5 miles uphill = 3 Ah.  For the rest of us: Plenty of power to make my 18 mile commute (each way) a piece of cake.  Tomorrow, April 6, 2012 I will ride my bike to work for the first time in almost 4 years!  YES!
