On The Road With @bluejaysroger: DAHON Speed Uno Review

 

Bison professional Driver Roger shows off the DAHON Speed Uno.

 

This summer, Bison has partnered with DAHON folding bikes to road test and conduct reviews of some of their bikes. You met Bison professional Company Driver Roger in our last post about the DAHON bikes.

Roger is focused on cycling off some extra pounds this summer and recently took the DAHON Speed Uno on the road for a few weeks. 

Overall, Roger said the Speed Uno is simple to use, with a single-gear, coaster brakes and 20-second set-up, while also fitting easily into the front of his truck.

 “Someone with little-to-no cycling experience could easily take the bike out, set it up and drive around the truck stop parking lot or up and down the street,” Roger says.
