    Dahon MU Uno

    Is anyone else as excited as I was when I heard about this bike?
    I mean, finally an SS foldie that is also badass looking, all in black?
    Now, how can we make it a fixed gear with those vertical rear dropouts, of course without having to go with an expensive eccentric hub or BB. I guess sticking to a 16t cog will achieve the same chain tension Dahon got. but what if we require a larger gear?
    Why couldn't they have just made it with H dropouts!?
    Jeez!

    The latest issue of Bicycle Times has a review of this bike. Mostly favorable. Check it out.

    I was excited! ... I bought one .. it has horizontal drops, not vertical .. and the rear spacing is 120mm, unlike most Dahons .. it's a terrific bike, stiff, light, folds compactly (inside handlepost), rolls easily when folded, can be wheeled, folded, forward or reverse without the pedals spinning as the hub freewheels .. there are a few Mu Uno posts on the Dahon site .. here's a LINK showing mine and some discussions..
