Folding and unfolding the Speed Uno has never been easier or more secure. Dahon's DoubleLok design means that every latch has a secondary lock for maximum safety, which also serves as a reminder to make sure the latch is properly secured before riding. Thanks to Dahon's clever magnetic latching system--which holds the bike neatly together when folded--the bike stays folded in one neat package while you carry it. This is particularly handy when you're carrying the Speed Uno upstairs, running to catch a bus, or lifting the bike into a car trunk.
And with no brake cables or shifter cables, there is practically nothing to adjust or maintain. The Speed Uno is a great option for a flat commute.

Top Customer Reviews
The bike is well put together, I am pleased with the quality of what I paid for. It looks good, more like a BMX or Freestyle bike than your typical folding "clown bike". I like the simplicity of it, no cables or gears, which is fine for riding here in the flat desert. The matte black color is cool, but there are plenty of reflectors on it, so you can be seen at night. Nice flat pedals, good for normal shoes. I like the low crossbar, makes the bike more like a step through scooter, which is nice when you are wearing slacks or heavy work pants.
I found it to be kind of twitchy at first, with the smaller wheels. But once I got used to it, changed my style a bit, I don't even notice that. Although it does help to get a mirror so you aren't having to look back too often, kind of wobbly on this bike. If I have any complaints, its that the smaller wheels and tires are not very good in softer materials like gravel and sand, and they really don't do well on uneven or broken pavement. Stuff that you can roll over with a mountain bike will probably hurt you with these wheels. Obviously we have a pretty rough and austere environment here, I doubt these things would be much of an issue in a place with clean, well maintained streets. You just have to pay a little more attention and take less for granted.Read more ›
First of all, what I love:
-It folds and unfolds so easily. Practice though, I did pinch myself early on. The seat clamp needs some fine tuning sometimes. Once while riding the seat twisted to the right. I stopped the bike and tightened it with no problems.
It packs up compact enough to bring on a non-crowded bus. It could easily fit on the floor in front of a seat. Since my bus is packed every morning, I place it in the under luggage area.
-The large tires soften the road/pot holes of NYC. Go on YouTube and search for this bike, you'll see a review from NYCEWheels.
-The fact that there are no break or gear cables is great.
-I am 6'2 so I am at the upper limits of the bike. It fits great and I can get some pretty good speed. On the flats, I'm sometimes spinning really fast to beat the cabs.
What could be better (but by no means hate):
-It's a bit heavy to carry long distances. I remedy by leaning to one side as I carry it and resting the seat on my hip. For the price, though, it is such a great little bike. The weight helps keep me stable when I ride, I'm sure.
-The seat post or handle bars didn't fit any of my Planet Bike lights mounts. I had to invent some things to get my lights.
Overall, I am in total love with this bike. It's fun to ride, convenient, and tough. Can't wait for the NYC snow!
UPDATE: (after owning for a few months). I'm still loving my little "burrito.Read more ›
I own this bike for like 2 days and it's already a conversation starter on the Metro-link train station, university shuttle buses and students on campus. I over heard the lady shuttle bus driver talking to another girl, "look at this folding bike? what else will they come up with next?" I kind of chuckled and smiled. Everyone, myself included loves the elegance and simplicity of its design and how clean/quick it folds/unfolds. The first time I didn't know exactly where to apply initial pressure to open and close the main frame but after only a day, I can do it in less than 10 seconds fold/unfold. One of the YouTube video shows during folding the D7HG Vitesse to lower the seat first but I found with my Speed Uno, it's best to lower the seat last, as the main frame folds, the hinge on the steering wheel pushes against the back of the back-seat. So if you lower the seat last, you'll get the most compact fold without bumping against any other part.
What I love about this bike besides the look is the weight. It's so light, even when I ride uphill with minor wind blowing down on me with a backpack on, it's manageable (this considering I never done this ever so within a week, I imagine this will become totally non-issue even with a single gear). I'm lean and not powerfully built, just average 145lbs, 5'8". Whatever your own weight is, know that this bike won't contribute much to the overall weight you need to pedal to move forward; it's unbelievable because it seems like you're literally floating on air.Read more ›

The bike came in the wrong color.
Buyers, be aware of the chance of getting a polka-dot pink one instead of the one on the picture.
One tire valve was broken. The other tire didn't get very firm. Also the picture on Amazon shows the bike is black, but it actually has blue trim. I'm returning the bike to Amazon. Read morePublished 17 days ago by Adam Tennant
