Dahon Mu Uno Owners, Share here !

Hi owners of the Dahon Mu Uno !
Post your picture of the bikes and do share your stories or anything related

Mine, bought on 1st July 2013,already did more than 300km rides,joined 2 races ..first on inside Sepang International Circuit itself,2 laps..and besides of f1 track ,3 laps..

Stock parts :
Settings : Chainring 53T/18T Cog
Crank arm : FSA Tempo with FSA Chainring guard/bash guard
Chain : KMC Z510
Rear Hub : Shimano Coaster Brake CB-E110 Silver
Front Hub : Kinetix Dahon
Pedal : Wellgo foldable pedal
Handlebar : Uno flat bar
Brake : Tektro R369

Upgrades :
Chain guard : BioLogic FreeDrive
Handlebar : Easton DeltaForce TT Base bar
Pedal : Cannondale Bad Boy 5 Stock pedals
Saddle : Velo 3250
Lights : CatEye Rapid 5 & CatEye Uno black
Computer : CatEye Velo Wireless

And i removed the front brake to make it more simple & clean look

Relax Speed : 0 - 20km/h
Average speed : 20km/h to 26km/h
Sprint speed : 26km/h to 41.9km/h
Pedal to the medal : 49.3km/h (the top speed on flat i ever got on that bike,just in seconds)

The only things i don't satisfied with the bike is :
1-Noisy hub after you put a lot miles & clean on it
2-Lack of speed to sprint & climb due to single speed
3-It's black shadow matte colours.. so.. i clean it by just wipe with microfiber sponge & cloth
4-Limited rear hub upgrades because , i measure the rear dropout is only just 120mm spacing.. and no rear derailleur "hangers"

My Dahon Mu Uno

(before)


(now)


1st Lap on Folding Bike race in Sepang International Circuit's area..see my right hand.. thats tell you guys how steep is that hill ... hahaha


Well, thats all for now! Goodbye

Yeah ! Absolutely !
Very stiff and high tension even its a 25.4mm bar .. abuse it 1-2 times on steep hills .. still in good condition
It's hard to find bar like this :/

Upgrade to a sram automatix, upgrade the sprocket and add powergripper pedals witg straps for a budget upgrade that will change the bike for the better.
