    Dahon Mu XL Sport

    I'd like to get a folding bike that both my wife and I can ride around town and take on trips. Mostly errands and some recreational riding. She's 5' and I'm 5'9". I like the specs of the Dahon Mu XL Sport. She gets confused using 2 deraillers and the enclosed hub looks clean and easy to maintain. So this may be a good choice for us.

    Any owners here with some feedback on the bike? Durability? Performance?

    Thanks in advance.

    - Dennis

    The Mu XL Sport is a brand new model for 2008 and may not arrived at many dealers. It certainly hasn't shown up at my local dealer, and they stock most models.

    If memory serves, the Mu frame/bikes have only been around since 2006, so long-term durability is a bit of a guess. But there are many riders of the Mu SL and the Mu XL. The Mu XL Sport is sort of a blend of those two bikes -- a compromise between light-weight performance and the benefits of an internal hub. With the XL Sport, they seem to have gotten away from the specialized front hubs -- the Pantour on the SL and the Dynamo on the XL.

    If this bike had existed when I purchased my Mu SL, I would have seriously considered it.
