    Years ago I was a co-owner of a shop that sold Boda-Bodas and Mundos. Great bikes. Customers came for all over Illinois and NW Indiana to start cargo biking with Yubas from our shop. I started with a Mundo Lux, It did everything I asked of it, towing my Labrador, going shopping, hauling building supplies etc. Upgraded to a 2019 Spicy Curry, Bosch Performance Line CX, an even more capable bike. Took it touring. Did all the things the Mundo did, but now I could tow multiple Labradors to the beach and back.

    After hitting 6,000 miles it was time to spice up the ride. Just installed a Rohloff Speedhub 500/14 CC DB Ext 32h hub with the OEM2 axle plate. Complex, but not difficult. The Rohloff is a improvement over the original 10sp der set up. No more dropping the chain off the chain ring from shifting too far. Being able to downshift at a stop is a real plus with 150 pounds of Lab in he trailer. The write up and photos are on my FB page.
