    Thanks for posting the specs.

    In terms of Mundos with an IGH, these folks have been using the NuVinci hub:

    You should have gotten black. You’re going to look like a smurf rolling around with your blue attire / helmet.

    I’m in the process of building up a Mundo myself and your set up looks almost identical to what I am thinking about. How have you found it? Are you happy with all of your choices? And did you end up going with the avid brakes?

      I did go with the Avid BB5 brakes.
      I think it all worked out well.
      The internal gear hub is the tricky part. I broke a piece of the kit and my mechanic fashioned a stronger replacement piece.

    How much does the V4 actually weigh compared to the V3? I think the latter is something like 55lbs, no?

      I have no idea what the weight is of any Yuba. I think my own is 60.
