My 1st post on this forum :-)
Hopefully collecting my Mu Uno later today Thanks to the store's price-match policy and my friend's 25% discount card (they work for the chain) I will be picking it up for £307! Excellent value at that price! That's just shy of $520 US.
This is only the 2nd bike I will have ever owned - the other is my trusty Giant Boulder around 10 years old. I have no previous experience with folders.
My Mu will get used at least 4 days per week; daily commute, sometimes on and off trains and into a car boot. Reason for purchase is that due to a change of job I need something more portable for the commute. Also I will get plenty of leisure time with it when we visit people on weekends - I love visiting local woods wherever I go to simply take it in, walk around, birdwatch etc. This will allow me to do much more of that.
I chose this bike because of its weight, general simplicity, minimalist design, colour & because with my friend's staff discount it made sense to pick-up a highly respected mid-level folder at at an almost entry-level price. I'd also noticed that in many ways it's ripe for some cool upgrades.
I hope to get some sound advice from those much more knowledgeable than me, as a I slowly start to upgrade this bike with little bits and pieces. Having ready many threads (ps Brucemetras Mu Duo is especially gorgeous!) I've got plenty of ideas already but will do it slowly and steadily.
Will post a picture every time I add something or change something on the bike. My aim is to get advice before each step to get the best possible outcome every time any change is made.
