    http://www.dahon.com/forum/index.php...e=post&id=1722

    "It has been determined that the seat post bolt on some full-size models of Dahon
    bicycles can break under use and may pose a potential safety hazard. These seat
    post bolts MUST be replaced immediately.

    Product: Bolt on seat posts branded “BioLogic™ PostPump” with 27.2mm diameter.
    Equipped on 2007 model year Dahon Matrix, Jack, Espresso, Cadenza, Tournado
    and Smooth Hound bicycles."

    What is the seatpost bolt? The bolt that holds the saddle to the seat post?

    Has anyone with a Dahon Bike with the defective seat post bolt received a replacement part yet?
    Better yet, has any owner heard anything from the supplying dealer? I hope the bike owners don't have to track down the replacement part!

    I e-mailed Brands Cycles last night regarding the news of the bolt problem and I got an almost immediate response. Wow, this was around 8:30pm last night! They really have been great to work with. Highly recommended!

    Anyway, they said they would be receiving the replacement hardware from Dahon in about 10 days and would send a replacement to me as soon as they got it. Hard to beat that...
