Smooth Hound

The distinctively classic Smooth Hound has been reincarnated with LockJaw hinges for fast and convenient folding. The Smooth Hound adapts readily to casual city cruising or serious weekend touring, however you want to ride. The Dahon Axis stem adjusts for height and reach so you can sit high and see over traffic on weekday commutes, or go low when you are heading into the wind on a 100 mile day. Classic touches include Shimano Ultegra Barcon shifters and a hand-made Brooks Champion leather saddle in a custom antique brown color that will mold to your body and get better looking the longer you ride it. Urban style at its functional best.
