Lightest folding bike

Dahon introduced the lightest production folding bicycle at Eurobike 2007, the Mu XXV. 250 of these limited edition bikes will be built to commemorate Dahon's 25th Anniversary in 2008.

Dahon Mu XXV


This 7.5 kg / 16.6 lb folding bike is built up with Shimano Dura Ace along with custom components designed just for Dahon from FSA, Shimano, Syntace, Schwalbe, Kinetix and Kore. See more photos -- including a nice one of the sweet white FSA crankset with ceramnic bearings -- and details at Bike Radar.

Bike Radar also reports on other Dahon bike products like the eye-catching Smooth Hound 6.0 mini-bike with stylish touches like a leather Brook's saddle and leather handlebar tape on moustache bars with bar-end shifters. This mini-bike is not a folder, but it is packable for travel and storage.

The Dahon Cadenza 2008 "urban mountain bike" is equipped with the Alfine internal gearing hub and Shimano disk brakes. This 28 lb bike folds in about 10 seconds, according to Dahon.

Good catch on that, Larry. You're right.

Why'd they have to make it look like a Ghost Bike?
