Solarbike conversion – electric Yuba Mundo with disc brakes
This is our second electric Yuba Mundo with a super simple conversion kit from Solarbike. This version comes with twin 180mm Shimano disc brakes using a lightweight geared front hub motor. When not in e-bike mode this bike rides like a normal Mundo carrying around 8kgs more than a standard bike thanks to the weight of the battery, motor and controller. The motor freewheels when not in use so there is no drag. Just switch on the battery and you are ready to go – the thumb throttle activates the assist so you can choose how much help you need. The battery is mounted on the frame in a lockable rack mount so that you can charge the battery on or off the bike. At $950 for the kit plus approx $160 for us to fit and test you can be on the road with an electric assist cargo bike for as little as $2360 depending on the accessories you need for your own brand of bicycle hauling. Test ride this bike in Collingwood or call to discuss anytime.
