I know the forum gets a lot of questions about Dahon Boardwalks.
I haven't ridden a bike in years, but decided to get myself a folder because I moved to another town with good public transport (so I can fold it and take it on the bus with me).
For this reason, I bought myself a used Dahon Boardwalk S1 because I didn't have the money for a Brompton or Bike Friday Tikit.
I've had a lot of problems with the Boardwalk, but the biggest one is depressingly bad. It's the handlepost locking mechanism; the thing is wobbly as hell and the "safety" on it is a cheap piece of plastic that doesn't even hold the lock down properly.
I bought a new one and installed it to see if it was just a problem with the original part, but no, it's still very wobbly. I feel like the handlepost with break right off if I pull back even moderately hard.
What kind of aftermarket handleposts (nonfolding or with a stiffer lock) could I install on the Boardwalk without elaborate modification?
I included a picture of the lock. What's holding the handlepost in is simple a very large bolt screwed tight.
If need be I can post more pictures.
