This Dahon MU Uno review will share all of the most important facts that you should know about this bike and you’ll also find out why it has been claimed to be among the greatest folding bikes available.
The Dahon MU Uno is a more refined edition of the Dahon Speed Uno, not to mention that it’s more expansive and also comes with more features compared to its predecessor. Besides, it’s among the lightest folding bikes which are currently available at a very affordable price.
Simplicity is the first thing that you will notice the moment you meet one of the sleekly styled folding bicycles. It is suitable for someone who needs a low maintenance yet high performance folding bike. The Dahon MU Uno features one brake, but most prefer to disassemble it and they depend more on the back coaster brake. By doing this, all the clunky brake cables can be hidden. Aside from that, while the bicycle is in the single gear setup, there are no gear shifter wires and it further adds to the overall aesthetic appeal and look of this superb folding bike.
On top of that, the Dahon MU Uno folding bike weighs less than most of the other folding bicycles in the market. Regardless of where you look, you’ll soon realize that it is so hard to get a bicycle weighing 22 pounds for the same cost.

The Dahon MU Uno can be folded easily and can be done in less than ten seconds. Once completely retracted, this bike will be held firmly by powerful and robust magnets.
