yuba Mundo : carriers, panniers, stand etc.
 
Last Friday my mundo bike arrived. I am quite happy. Already carried a 15 kg butane cylinder and it was surprisingly stable. now I am thinking of how to put it to best use on a regular basis.

I know I need to get some webbing straps to supplement my bungee-cords which are bit too elastic for large loads.

I need a stand too. I suppose a dual kick stand is the best. any suggestions (currently, I am in Spain)?

other thing I want is to set up a nice set of carriers/panniers. my regular panniers won't fit the rack but I can somehow adapt them, nevertheless, they are (1) too small, (2) too expensive looking so has to be unhooked and carried all the time. I am thinking of one kitty litter box mounted on each side, and some type of collapsible bags, may be a modification of IKEA bags. any ideas for this? (go-getter, while nice is bit expensive and alone covers a lot of space on the bike, I need to think more about that). anyone got suggestions? photos?

I'm curious too about accessories for the Mundo.

I tested the IKEA bag concept last night. It is usable but I did not feel that it was reliable for carrying my laptop, camera and few other electronics that travel with me. I would use it for groceries though. Today, I carried a load of tools, a messenger bag and few tote bags full of documents using a gym bag. I definitely need to do something about a sturdy base. And I would not leave this attached to the bike when parked. So the quest continues.

ulugeyik,
Look for a Hebie bipod stand. They are made in Germany, but should be readily available to you I would think.

Maybe some of the stuff from here might fit the Yuba...

so I went to a LBS, we conversed somehow and I bought a bi-pod for 15 euros. It was not packaged so I do not know the brand. the front of the bike stands up that the wheel is ~15-30cm up but it works with decent loads.

xtra-cycle accessories are quite expensive.

freeloader might fit. but $89 a side is bit too much for me. anyone put together something equivalent from parts?
