Less is more when it comes to the new DAHON Mµ Uno. Standing in stark contrast to the distraction of a multitude of gears, the Mµ Uno celebrates the simple joy of the ride. A single- speed folding bike with no derailleur to fuss with, no cables to adjust, and a coaster brake that begs the rider to rediscover the unabashed glee of the power-slide. Our inspiration for this distillation? A visit to a dealer in the Netherlands who declared, “Who needs more? We just need a durable bike for everyday riding, a single gear suitable for going fast, and a simplified fold for uncomplicated travel.” DAHONs answer: the new lightweight Mµ Uno with sophisticated details like the seat post-integrated Zorin PostPump. In case you want to mount a front brake as well, the Mµ Uno is innately provided with a Calliper brake. The price for this fancy bike: 449 Euro.
