    Exclamation Yuba Mundo recall

    FYI:

    http://yubabikes.com/recall/

    Thought I'd share this in case anyone reading has one and wants to get the wheel covers for the rear.

    Okay - So keep your feet out of the darn wheel if your riding on the back? I already figured that out, apparently some people can't.

    anyone who feels endangered by their mundo can send it to me. i won't even ask to be paid (beyond you paying the shipping fee) for saving you from such a vile and dangerous vehicle.

    I'd imagine the recall is more to prevent little feet from getting into the rear wheel. Without bags I could easily see a child's foot getting caught.

    I'm curious why they don't think this issue exists with the pre-V4 models.

    To lighten up the V4 they removed support bars from under the rack, thus making it easier for little feet to get caught in the wheel.

    I have a V3 and my 5 year old managed to do it anyway. To help prevent this from happening again I attached some cheap, rectangular wire racks to both sides. Cost me about 3 dollars. Protects feet and also provides many bungee hook attachment points.

    We have the same bike. The same thing happened with my son a while back. In fact, he was probably 5 yrs old at the time. It has not happened since, but I have thought about getting the skirts or some similar DIY fix. My daughter is 5 now and is moving from the peanut shell to the position right behind me with the stoker bars. My son learned after the first time to keep his feet away from the wheel and I just don't want my daughter to learn the same way. My son, now 7, will be migrating to a tandem with my wife (once I find the right tandem) for our longer rides. Time to get that boy contributing to the locomotion.
