DAHON Mu UNO - so simple!

It took a couple of hours to get used to the rear coaster brake. After that, no more problem.

I do like the simplicity. No shifter, no lever, no noise, and no cable at all~

I love mine. I do use the front brake on it, though. I replaced the pump seatpost and a few other little things and the weight is a very nice 20.5 lbs. The only thing I ever worry about is fixing a flat (assuming I can't repair it while on the bike). It requires removing the coaster brake arm along with the rear single speed bolts and then resetting the chain tension. Not something I would enjoy doing while on a ride. Otherwise, it's light and pretty much bulletproof. Yours is lovely - enjoy it!

Thanks man. Mine is belt drive. The tension adjustment is actually not complex, though I have not replaced the tyre yet.

Resetting the chain isn't complex, it's just all a bit harder than a simple quick release wheel, that's all. Haven't flatted yet, but if it happened a lot, I might consider a solid tire on the rear only. Not happy about having to carry extra wrenches, but the bike is lovely so worth it.
