Yuba Mundo rider in Oakland, CA
I'm Michael Fitzhugh. Since developing what my wife would call a cargo biking obsession late last year, I've been having a great time riding and learning about every kind of heavy-duty carrier out there, from longtails to bakfiets.
My primary ride is a Yuba Mundo v3 from Sausalito, Calif.-based Yuba Bicycle. I pedal my kids (ages 1 and 3) to and from preschool & daycare on days when the weather cooperates and when I'm not too exhausted from my other aerobic pursuit, running. My other bike is a folder, a Dahon Helios 8.
I don't know a lot about the technical side of components and repair—yet! But I hope to dive into BF.net to learn and share everything I can. Work-wise, I'm primarily a reporter these days. But I also am Yuba's official social media tsar, maintaining the company's presence on Facebook, Twitter, etc. If you have any Yuba-related questions, I'm happy to try to answer them.
First and foremost, I'm here to contribute to a bigger discussion of cargo and utility biking. I'm looking forward to participating!
