May Day
photo cred: indy reader

The workers here at Baltimore Bicycle Works will continue our tradition of closing the shop every May first to celebrate May Day. As such we will be closed this Friday, May 1st. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience. We will re-open Saturday for our regular hours, 11am to 7pm.

May Day has become somewhat of a forgotten holiday here in the US, but at it’s core it is a celebration and a reminder of the struggle for the 8 hour work day and many of the other significant labor struggles of the past. We hope you enjoy the day.

For Sale: Shop Demo Yuba Mundo with Stoke Monkey Electric Assist

Stoke Yuba Cargo Bike

This is a very unique cargo bike build especially well suited to haul heavy loads. Perfect for carrying kids and cargo alike. This Yuba Mundo is a custom build and has been used as a shop demo model. The bike and all parts are in good working order and ready for years of use and abuse. Compatible with any Yuba Mundo accessories, so you can customize to meet your needs.

The Stoke Monkey electric assist motor is just one of the features that make this build so special. Unlike other electric assist systems, the Stoke Monkey does not power a wheel, but powers a tandem crank running the assist through the drivetrain. This allows the motor to take advantage of the gearing in the drivetrain and provide more low end torque making it more powerful in hill climbing scenarios, especially with heavy loads. Read more about Stoke Monkey here.

The rear Nuvinci N171 hub is another unique feature of this bike. This is the first generation of bicycle hubs from Nuvinci and offers riders a continuously variable transmission. That means there are no set indexed gears, but rather a continuous range of gear options. Read more about the Nuvinci N171 here. This hub is heavy, but it is also extremely durable and easy to use.

This is a very unique opportunity to own what we consider to be a very special, very fun and best of all, very capable bike. If you are looking for the perfect kid hauler or work bike, look no further. Stop in and take it for a test ride. We know you’ll love the way this bike makes you feel. On sale for $2,500.

Spec Details:
Yuba Mundo V2 Frame
Rock Shox XC 32 TK Coil Sprung 26” with Lockout
Nuvinci N171 Rear Hub
