When Dahon released the widely popular Mu Uno folding bike they found that the simple one-speed design was widely popular with urban commuters. It's simple, lightweight, and even looks cool. The Dahon Speed Uno folding bike is a newer, simpler design that is even more affordable. At 24-Pound, the Speed Uno folding bike is one of Dahon's lightest bikes. One of the reasons for this is the single speed with a rear coaster brake. Just like the bike you had when you were a kid, pedal backward to stop the bike with a skid. Folding and unfolding has never been easier or more secure! Dahon's DoubleLok 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. And thanks to Dahon's simple and ingenious magnetic latching system that holds the bike neatly together when folded, when you lift or carry this bike it stays together in one neat package. You'll really appreciate this when you're carrying it upstairs, running to catch a bus or lifting the bike into a car trunk. Without brake cables and shifter cables, this bike touts the utmost simplicity. There is practically nothing to adjust or maintain, so for a flat commute, it's a great option. For this price, you won't find another folding bike that's worth riding. Customers can mail in their warranty registration card to: please refer to www.dahonbikes.com.

UPDATE: I keep this bike in the trunk of my Honda Accord during the vast majority of my commute downtown to work and back in Indy. The last 1/2 mile of the commute was pounding pavement on foot; it saves me $65/month in parking, but increasingly it was killing my problematic feet. This bike is absolutely perfect for my circumstances!!!! I now fly in that last 1/2 mile in an enjoyable manner. Plus, I can go out on lunch for errands, shopping, etc., that I could not do on foot prior. I picked this specific folding bike for several reasons: it is very simple, lightweight, features and high quality. While I could have bought some other single speed for about half, I am so glad got this one!! I am thrilled with this bike.
It's less stable than a full-size bike and you need to mind your speed because the coaster brake is solid, but I still find the bike excellent for trips all around Portland. I'm over 6 feet tall and can easily jack the seat up to accommodate my long legs.
I had a Dahon Boardwalk before this, but the Uno blows it away for my purposes. I didn't want a bunch of gearing and cables. I wanted a light-weight bike that could fold into a large duffel bag and fly with me on trips or stash in the trunk of my car.
Do I wish the bike was less expensive? Of course. But do I regret the purchase? Absolutely not. In fact, I'm thinking about buying a second just to stash in the apartment for when I have friends in from out of town. The bike pays for itself after not needing a few cab rides.
This was the right solution for me given space considerations (apartment and car trunk) and the fact that I'm very concerned about bike theft so I can keep the bike next with me or lock it up folded.
I'm 6'2", 180 lbs and I ride comfortably on it. The wheels are smaller than a regular bicycle and the overal feel is quite different.
I did my research before I bought and tested a similar folding bike at a bike shop so I really knew what I was getting into. It should be ridden relatively gently because of the implicit danger of a coaster break. So for longer-distance, diverse terrain rides, stick with a mountain bike. For a relatively flat commute or leisurely ride, this is a perfect solution.
Other than that initial confusion, I've been extremely happy with the bike. I've used it to commute to work (about 20 minutes each way) through the city and up some smaller hills. It has handled it all very well and folds/unfolds easily. I recommend it!
