Building up a Yuba Mundo for a customer at the shop
First impression? Guh, this thing's heavy. I believe the claimed weight of 59 pounds. It looks pretty good, although the part spec could be quite a bit better for the money. This thing is definitely built to be strong and not necessarily nice or a good performer. Hopefully it will be available in the future as a frame only like the Big Dummy. I'm not done building it yet (ran out of time due to starting on it quite late in the day.) Definitely expect to spend some time building it up as it basically comes as a frame with headset cups pressed in and BB installed. Everything else is in a parts box. It'll be cool to see once it's done.
