My Dahon Mu uno - slow conversion...

Hi,

here a pics from my brand new Uno - already with changed handlebar, Brooks leather tape and FSA Vision Aero brake lever, Knog Boomer front and rear light and a Sigma 1609 STS.





I think i will change to a Brooks saddle too (as i have on my other bikes). And for spring there should be a set of 20"-451 wheels with a Duomatik ready

SCHÖN! Very sleek and a black leather Brooks saddle would be quite nice.

Thanks - and that´s also my opinion - a black Brooks Swift or so would be great

That's a very sleek look. Like how you changed the handlebars for an even more stretched out look. I've been slowly deciding on a curve d3 and this one for simplicity by springtime. But I'm wondering would a big apple fit on those wheels? or is the frame and brakes going to cause it to rub with the fenders? I need fenders cause I commute daily.

How's that chainguard holding up? I'm intrigued to see how that would work for an everyday commuter bike.

Hi,

i found in the german ebay a set of the chainrunner

http://cgi.ebay.de/ChainRunner-neuer...item7dbaa9f7e6

THis should work also on every other bike with an internal gear hub. I´m thinking to use it on my every day bike with Nexus...
