    I struggle to see a difference to the Mu, except for colors and componentry? There is talk of hydroforming and a new hinge design. Hydroforming is hardly new tech, although it is still current tech. The hinge I am guessing to be an incremental improvement.

    I wonder on what basis these awards are, well, awarded. Still, I am not deploring the bike, very nice.

    [edit] I see the forks are turned backwards when folding. The hinge is placed further back in the main tube, making the fold a smidge smaller.

    just came back from Eurobike and had the chance to ride one over there....
    1. they look nice, very nice actually the tube connection between the front top tube aqnd the rar stays is pretty to say at least.
    2. they are light ..... Dahon must have learned a boatload from their 24 Ios bikes ( which are on the heavy side of things )
    3. did I mention that they are stiff .... oh boy do they hammer ... most likely the most important point in the vector line , they are super stiff and every motion translate into forward momentum .... hmmmm

    yeah I am biased of course ... but pretty exited about these

    I'm interested in how this will affect the Mu lineup, too. There's mention of the Vector replacing the SL and EX (as well as the Speed Pro TT), but no mention of whether the Vector frame will completely replace the Mu lineup. Seems like the only announced bikes are high end, leaving models like the Mu P8 and Uno to seemingly continue on as Mu incarnations?
