I'm new here and new to utility cycling, so new in fact that I haven't actually even picked up my bike yet (6 days until that baby comes home with me!). Anyway, I'm getting a Yuba Mundo and I'm really stoked about it! I do however have a few questions and was hoping for some advice.
- I live in a community surrounded by goat heads and I really don't want to be fixing flats on every trip. Are the Mundo tires pretty tough on thorns or am I going to need a little help? Whats an inexpensive way to fix the problem?
- I will be cycling with my 20 month old and the thought of fixing a flat while keeping an eye on the toddler kind of stresses me out. Anyone have any insight or a tip on dealing with that? I get the feeling tethering him to a nearby fence or street sign might be frowned upon.
- I won't be leaving my bike out at night but whats a decent but not too expensive lock? Do I really have to spend close to a hundred bucks on this?
- The baby seat that specifically is sold by Yuba is not in stock until the end of feb, what are the alternative seats if any that would work with the mundo?
Ok, I think that's it for now. Thank you!!
