Dahon Speed Uno Folding Bike

I’ve been into sport-biking since a kid: The ramps, the flips, the jumps, the whole nine, or in the case of last Friday, fifteen yards. I was looking for a bike that was not only easy to do tricks and flips on, but also one that didn’t cost me an extra $190 dollars per flight, going from show to show. Needless to say I needed some flexibility, or in the case of the Dahon Speed Uno Folding Bike, fold-ability.

My manager did the research for me and ordered the Dahon Speed Uno Folding Bike along with three others, figuring they would take advantage of free returns on three of them, with the hope that at least one would pass my test.

The first practically broke, cheaply made, though in the same price as all the others. That bike saw its first and last flip within seconds of its arrival.

The second was too heavy, and at the best case, could maybe go three yards, that is coming off a huge ramp. I was in need of a bike that was heavy enough for me to maintain balance, yet light enough for me to go the distance.

Upon landing an awesome ramp propelled flip off the third, the Dahon Speed Uno Folding Bike, I didn’t even try the fourth. I was in total bike-love. The thing was awesome, and to this day has seen three major spills, two of which landing me in the hospital, none of which substantially damaging the bike. It still rides like new.

Not only was the bike awesome, but the bike was stronger than me. Every time I am folding it into a much cheaper checked bag, I respect my bike, not only for all it does for me, but for its strength, design, diversity and the career defining effect it left on my stuntman-career.

I have one saved in case the other breaks, however at the looks of it, it will make an awesome Christmas Gift for my nephew next year. God knows my Dahon Speed Uno Folding Bike will not be breaking anytime soon.
