Need specific Dahon Mu specs

Working on another project and need some Mu specs. If it works out, I'll be buying one; if not, maybe not. Would also be interested in the same specs on a Curve. Specifically interested in IGH models, so 08 Mu XL, and Curve D3 would be optimal. Measurements do not have to be caliper/blueprint exact, readings off a tape measure would do.

What is the distance from the crank to the rear hub? Measured from center of BB spindle to rear hub axel. The Mu XL and Curve D3 have rear-facing, horizontal fork ends (aka "track dropouts") at the rear, yes? If so, length of those? Do the other models have vertical fork ends? If no-one's got info specifically on the XL, I'd also be interested in the same measurement from crank to axel on vert. fork end Mu.

Also, on the Mu (XL), what is the chainring spacing on the stock cranks? 110?

Thanks for any help you can offer!

Anyone? Who's got a Mu or Curve and owns a ruler, yardstick, or measuring tape?

I think the "chainstay" length on my Mu P8 (vertical DO) is 398mm, plus or minus 3mm. Can't make an accurate enough measurement, sorry.

The crank is 110BCD, not sure about the XL.

...stealin' mah thunder... which might be appropriate, given your sig.

Have you tried this route with the Mu/Curve/Glide? I was thinking that with the elevated chain/seatstay design of these Dahons, they might already be planning for it.
