This is a review for the Zietbikes Lugger. I've had it for a few months now so I thought that since there is still one left for sale at cargocycles.com.au I'd write about it to give any potential…Continue

"Shimano make dynamos with disc mounts. If my bike was set up for them I'd be heading in that direction. I've also just spotted another interesting product. The FSA Metropolis Patterson Crankset. It is a bottom bracket with a two speed…"

"Yeh, I'm keen to see how the dyno hub goes. If they have improved I might check them out again. Lights have improved too so might be time to experiment. Hmmm, wonder if I can get a dyno hub with disc mounts.. "

"VERY interested to hear how you go with the dynohub/brake. I've thought about that for some time... as my commuter has a SRAM 3 spd hub/coaster, so the combo has attracted me. I know that shimano has recently made its dynos a LOT more…"

"They should work - check that they are both non-linear pull brakes, that is, they get their mechanical advantage from their levers, like a road brake, as opposed to a V-brake which gets its from the length of the arms at the brake(and so the cable…"

Chris Harris replied to William Payze's discussion Brake Lever Compatibility
"Hmm, dunno. I'd try it out, if it works - good. If not, try plan B, or C... If you have pictures of each lever you should be able to tell if they're roughly compatible. The main thing is how much cable movement there is for the lever…"

Brake Lever Compatibility

Hello folks,I'm doing a bit of upgrading at the moment and I seek advice. I'm putting a Shimano roller brake on the back and wish to put a Sturmey Archer drum/dynamo combination up front in the near future. Each brand sells levers specific to the task but I'd rather have two of the same style levers on my bars. Do the sturmey archer levers work with the shimano roller brake, and vice-versa?Cheers,Bill.See More

Kona Minute

I just saw the new kona line-up for 2012. In it they have a shortened version of their ute. The payload is said to be 300 lbs and it comes with two panniers.http://www.konaworld.com/asphalt_simplicity.cfm?content=minuteThe thing that appears to put a lot of people I know off the xtra-cycles and yubas is the overall length of the bike. It just seems wrong to them. Do you think this will get more people into…See More

"Thanks Gary, The main reason that I took the gearing difficulty to be the norm is that other people have noted the same difficulty with bikes that have long chain lines. I've seen it commented on about the Yuba, the Rans Hammer Truck and some…"

"Good point, as this chain will be two conventional chains joined together so 2 joins instead of just one; make a Z with the stiff links and bend sideways in both directions a couple of times either with strong fingers or 2 sets of pliers (ie…"

"That's a monster ;-) You could mount a sidecar on that and have no pedal interference ;-)   Regarding the chain problems, a specialty bike for that price, with lower-end Shimano, will also have a lower end chain. Fitting a better quality…"

"Also as you are winding the chain watch for sticking links. Even slight ones, they could be your problem especially when you are applying a lot of pressure to the pedals. I had a chain like that on my road bike and was shown how to use 2 pairs of…"

"No worries Bill, if you want to get rid of your surplus bags let me know. If the chain is actually skipping (skating over the teeth) rather than just jumping out of gear then the above solution won't do the job. Possibly the chain is too…"

Hi William,
I've not yet fitted mudguards to the Mundo yet so probably won't be riding it in this week. If the sun's out next week (or if I can be arsed fitting some mudguards over the weekend) I'll be taking in a few days next week. I'll let you know nearer the time.
Cheers,
Rob
