The Linus is for sure a better+ more stylish bike. If you live in flatville a 3spd would do, but I would get one with a Sturmey Archer 5w. I have used that hub 5400 awesome carefree miles, with oil substituted for the grease inside. Top speed is 45 mph. Far better than any cheap 3x8 derailler that will last 1/8 as long. SA hubs are impervious to weather and dirt. Service once a year, if that.
Besides that, the UNO is so ugly, has dorky slope tubes, goofy irregular spokes, broom handlebar. It screams CHEAP.
