    I like the look of this Dahon MU UNO

    Single speed and no front brake, just a back peddle brake:
    http://www.dahon.com/us/muuno.htm

    Looks really clean

    The Speed P8 in black is tasty.

    Looks great! I did notice a mistake under "Technology Highlights" though. They list the Dahon Neos 2.0 derailleur when this is a single speed bike

    They explain this under Technology Highlights:

    "Every bike comes with a quality, forged, dual-pivot caliper brake and brake lever in case you really want (or law requires) a front brake."

    Wow... that's actually way cool. To tell the truth, this Mu Uno really does it for me, could very well be my next bike. Just for the fun of it, I set up a c-dale mtn bike I had with 20" wheels off a kids bike just to see if it would work with 20 wheels. Because it was a kids bike, it had a coaster brake. That thing was serious fun. Add a fold? Yeah, I'm completely sold on the idea. Extra bonus goodness when considering a switch to fixed gear...

    Any idea of the US price?

    I too am curious about the MSRP on this bike. Maybe $350-$450?

    On another note, I wonder if the UNO will replace the Boardwalk S-1 as their single speed offering? The S-1 is not on the website, unless I missed it somehow.

    Regards,
    Edward

    The S1 hasn't appeared on their website in the U.S. product line for several years. However, it has been available from several different online sites. Not sure that will continue to be the case.

    I really like my 2005 S1, and it was a bargain at $129.00, back when Camping World sold them.

    I've added mini bar ends, upgraded front V-brake and brake handle, replaced the pedals and added a ThudBuster seat post. I've done several 20 mile rides on it over relatively flat terrain (Rails to Trails).

    ??? By which you mean, just like every other Dahon, Downtube, and low-end folder on the market?

    Mu Uno: $579

    Hm.

    Well... the Boardwalk S1 seems like a bargain at $269. Hey, wait, when I click on the 2009 bikes, the 2008 list comes up. And Dahon isn't listing the Boardwalk for 09.

    Another poster indicated that the Boardwalk hasn't been on Dahon's website for several years now. About the MU UNO's MSRP, that seems a little high, but then again, prices for Dahons have been climbing every year.

    Woah, had no idea the Uno was that expensive. When I was considering bikes, I loved how Uno looked and because it was single speed, I thought it would be cheaper too. But I took it out of my choices because of the back pedal breaks (I can't deal with that).

    The Uno isn't expensive for what it is. I'll be buying one. Nice, light, and simple.

    It's a shame they didn't leave off all the cable routing stuff for an ultra-clean frame silhouette. It's nice though - leave it to the dutch to persuade them to do a coaster brake bike. I rode one out there as a student and it was a hoot.

    I think it's smart to leave all the cable routing on there, just in case you want to add stuff to it later. I was browsing the Moulton site and noticed that the TSR IGH offering, while suprising me by being the lowest priced TSR, still comes with a derailleur hanger--something I consider a bonus, but which someone looking for clean lines might detest.

    The Uno supposedly comes with premium components, but how many can there possibly be on a coaster brake bike? I was hoping for a price somewhere less than a Curve D3, $400 max--seemed like a reasonable expectation. At MSRP, I can get a REI FlyBy, and an 8sp upgrade, for only $120 more, and doesn't REI offer some insane discount that would put it below MSRP on the Uno? Might be smarter to get the FlyBy, have a coaster brake wheel built, and keep the 8sp setup as a spare... or sell it to fund the switch and come out even farther ahead on the whole deal.

    That Mu Uno is pretty sweet. Nice find...

    I've had my eye on the Cadenza Solo (which is apparently available international but not USA?)

    That would be a perfect beach cruiser with Skyways!
    Raleigh Twenty project in progress: Single speed conversion with Skyway Tuff II wheels with coaster brake.

    Coaster brake must be an Ultegra, or Durace?

    Sad thing is that these are listed on ebay for about $100 less than the Mu Uno...
