New Bike Spotlight: Dahon Mu Rohloff, a High Performance Foldable

  October 7, 2013

2014 Dahon Mu Rohlof profile

Folding bikes don’t come much sexier than the Mu Rohloff, the new 2014 model from Dahon. The Mu Rohloff is perfect for trekking,high performance workouts or commuting. Built on Dahon’s popular Mu frame, this bike sports top components including a Rohloff internally geared SPEEDHUB combined with Gates Carbon Drive. The drive makes this one of the smoothest-shifting, quiet and maintenance-free folding bikes on the market. Fast-rolling 451 mm wheels and high performance Magura MT6 hydraulic disc brakes deliver stopping power and durability. This beauty will be available in March. Order yours now because the Mu Rohloff is going to disappear faster than a folding bike onto a subway train.

And while we’re showing off a high-tech folding bike, we got these photos from Dahon customer Sebastian Sergio Malara of Italy,who did a custom build with Gates Carbon Drive (photos below).

I’m writing to let you know how satisfied I am with the Carbon Drive belt! I had a Dahon Mu Uno customized by “La Stazione Delle Biciclette” a bike shop in Milan (Italy) and it’s really smooth and silent. I love it. I’ve also installed a Sram Automatix with coaster brake.
