It’s fair to say that for the majority of those in the market for folding bike, city living means they aren’t looking for sport focused bikes that feature high performance components. They’re looknig for a durable, foldaway, lightweight bike that. The Dahon Speed Uni folding bike meets all these requirements and more.

The bike features a minimal design with no V-brakes, no brake levers and no cables. The Speed Uno is equipped with a coaster brake (also known as back pedal brake), so no need for messy cables running the length of the bike. To stop the bike, you will just need to pedal backwards a little bit and the wheels will be slowed down through friction. This might seem strange at first but when you get used to it you’ll appreciate the simplicities they bring. The brake requires less maintenance and performs better on wet roads.

Withno cables in your way, you can quickly fold and unfold this bike. We were able to get sub 15 seconds every time. This is a great bike and you should definitely consider it if you’re living in the city and need a small, nimble no nonsense folding bike for commuting or leisure needs.
