Yuba Mundo V1- Update!

Hank the best Bike Mechanic in Texas

Well, It has been a little over one week since I've purchased my used Yuba Mundo Version 1 (18 speed). I purchased it in a non ride-able condition.I did some tinkering during what must have been the busiest week of my career to date:
This past Saturday, I decided to take my Yuba to Hank at Helotes Bicycle Shop. Hank is a collector of bicycles and has been working in the bicycle industry for 40 years. He is the best wrenches I've met. Here is a list of what Hank accomplished today to make the Yuba Mundo ride-able. Cost of shop repairs was a reasonable $30:
  • True Rear Wheel
  • Replaced rear derailleur cable and housing
  • Check Chain (it was good) Just needed oil. 
  • Adjust Breaks

Here is still some quarks that need to be worked out but Hank didn't have time today to do it, but as it is it is rideable:
  • Replace front derailleur grip shifter
  • Replace front derailleur cable and housing. 
  • Replace headset tracks/bearings...there is some brinelling a.k.a. index steering. 
Somethings to I still need to do:
  • Touch up some paint
  • develop some boxes for groceries
  • Raise the seat a little
  • Add Kickstand (waiting on package from Yuba Bicycles)
  • Replace grips.
