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.

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. I might have been happier with a folding Mountain Bike, but of course the trade off with the big wheels is that it doesn't fold up as small.
Couple of things to note. The wheels are not quick release, you will need wrenches to take them off. The seat stem is pretty thick, it won't accept a lot of normal size lights. Luckily I bought one (Portland Design Works Spaceship Headlight and Radbot 500 Light Set) that was able to mount on the stock reflector mount. Otherwise, I have not had any trouble attaching headlights, mirror, etc. The folding mechanism is very simple, and easy to do. If you watch some of the videos of this bike on YouTube, you will notice you can fold it into a little bundle, but leave the seat extended, and use that as a handle to roll the bundle around. I like that.
I also bought the airline carry case, it shipped easily via US mail as well. I have not used it yet. Its well made, but expensive. Its a big piece of luggage though, and could serve double duty as a big suitcase if you need it.
I really like this bike, and enjoy riding it every day.
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." Couple of updates:
1. I discovered the perfect way to carry it. There's a great little nook on the frame if you carry it with the seat facing forward and on your left side. Totally balanced weight. Perfect.
2. Changed the seat. It had a big "comfort padded" seat that was actually uncomfortable for me. Switched to a thin, race-like saddle from an old bike. Love it..
3. The handlebar grips kept migrating and spinning on their own. It was pretty annoying. I put some electrical tape on the handlebar to prevent them from slipping in. (They still spin around, so I'm constantly putting them back in the proper direction)
