Do others have prob's with smooth shifting in all gears on Dahons
I guess the problem seems to be that my speed 8 is good for 3-4 gears depending on adjustment, and there's considerable grinding in the other gears, though they function. Doesn't seem like the gear spacing or chain width is right.
Also-does your chain fall off the front? It's not that often, but usually after taking it out of the bag, so I jump on the pedal and nearly kill myself. Is this a chain tension thing (as I recall, somebody at LBS said that Dahons are often mistensioned).
Anybody have similar experiences/solutions?
