Just saw your Yuba thread - very interesting - I am just starting a Yuba build. I'd like to leverage some of your efforts:
(1) what are we talking about to post a pair of torque arms to CT, USA and when might they ship? What material are you using (e.g. stainless?)
(2) what are the inside dimensions of your vee box and what are you asking?
I have a different custom Yuba torque arm design but it has no advantages over yours so the easy way is the best way...
I am building to a 48v30AH headway battery (same net capacity as your 72v20AH) and was planning on splitting it as panniers as you did, although forward a few more inches by extending/cantilevering the side-loader decks forward. I am curious about any comments you might have about the handling of your efforts... particularly if you have finished/tested the batteries-under-side-loader-deck bike. I was seriously looking at that strategy (stealthy) but it seemed that it required flattening the case (which moved weight rearward behind the rear axle) and did not actually improve the 'outrigger' weight placement (i.e. no closer to side-to-side bike centerline). Very curious how it worked out in real life. My bike is on order and so I don't have the advantage of simply *trying* different placements
Anyhow - definitely would like to hear back on the parts above.

Yuba USA will Airmail deliver (3-15 days) to all of Oceania. $70 for a complete mundo, and $45 for a frameset.

Partner and I have been the Yuba NZ distributor for 3 years. Getting one bike easy, and I should do that, getting 30 bikes, harder, and there are a bunch of business challenges holding us up getting more bikes. The NZ ezee distributor will be bringing in the e-mundo, and I will hopefully sell them, though I like to do my own conversions for customers. Based on what I know about the ezee gear, the bike should be good, though 36v10ah is not enough battery for hauling loads around, especially in NZ where everywhere is a hill.Yuba USA will Airmail deliver (3-15 days) to all of Oceania. $70 for a complete mundo, and $45 for a frameset.
Where did you find this info? I dont see it on the web site.
