Two Reflective Cam Straps

Two Reflective Cam Straps

Cam straps stacked

Bungies have their place, but for serious cargo hauling cams straps are indispensable – we use these regularly to deliver 70+ lbĀ  boxes to our shipping carrier.

The harder you pull, the harder the steel buckle bites into the strap. You can tension it as little or as much as you want, giving you the peace of mind thatĀ  your load isn’t going to shift unpredicatably. It holds tension with amazing strength. Check out the “don’t try this in your home forest” moment below!

Cam straps are awesome problem solvers.

When using a cam strap, try to find the Shortest Path around the object you’re securing. A diagonal path may shift or spin your load or loosen along the way. See below.

Cam straps are great for gusto. Note one in action below as crew member Pastana ropes a stray goat at our 2010 Earth Day concert at USF.

In order to use these straps most effectively, you need to keep them coiled neatly, ready for use, not jumbled up in your bag!

See how to coil a cam strap in this video:

Silver heavy duty nylon strapping with a reflective badge for night time visibility and steel cam buckle made to last. Available in 1 meter for small loads or 3 meters for big stuff.

Lunar Lander Kickstand

Apr 23, 2011Posted by in Mundo 500 Available Products, Mundo 500 Electric Cargo Bike and Pedal Power Generator, Mundo Kickstands Related Products, Products | Comments Off on Lunar Lander Kickstand

Lunar Lander Kickstand
Completely immobilize your Mundo, turning it into a workstation, display, or pedal power station.

No other kickstand we’ve tried comes close to the amazing stiffness, width and simplicity of the Lunar Lander. It’s danceably strong. The Lunar Lander is made of 2″ steel tubing, making it as strong and stiff as the Mundo itself. It weighs about 10 pounds for the pair, and can be easily strapped to your rig or rolled into a “long things bundle” with a shipping blanket.

Only a Mundo frame could handle the extreme rear positioning of this kickstand. The stiffness of the Mundo’s frame means you get no apreciable flex, front to rear, or left to right, while pedaling on the bike in stationary mode. That makes the Lunar Lander perfect for human power applications like generating power for our Pedal Powered Stage.


Above: Wilson, a 220-pound man, pedal powers Rock The Bike’s Halloween street party at Fair Oaks, on the Mundo 1000, which weighs 85 pounds unloaded. But it’s also carrying a 70 pound speaker and a go go dancer. That’s how strong and stable the Lunar Lander is. That’s danceably strong.

Please note: This is not a true kickstand, because it is not foot deployable. You have to use your hands to guide the notch into the triangular nook in the Mundo’s rack. It is somewhat awkward to do this without an assistant, though with practice you can get it down to about 30 seconds if the Mundo is not loaded.

You can also use the Mundo as a work station. Above, the Lunar Lander turns the Mundo into a sawhorse.
