    yeah "very close" is not the words I would use thanks though, I have been checking craigs every day and found some good ones, but they were either sold already, or just didn't respond (probably sold). I'll keep looking.

    going out to see this one tonight: http://newyork.craigslist.org/mnh/bik/1224361722.html

    90% chance I'll buy. Any input on a seatpost that would be comfortable for my longer rides and fits a 2008 Dahon Speed D7?

    Thanks for all your help up to this point!!

    Check the serial number to determine the year --- if a U.S. model, the first letter is always D, denoting Dahon. The second number is the year of manufacture. The next two numbers are the month of manufacture.
    For example, a serial number D302....... would mean a bike produced in 2003, month of February (02). Then a letter T followed by 4 numbers which is the actual number pertaining to the bicycle frame produced that month.
    (copied from a posting in the Dahon forum)

    Using the prices at www.thorusa.com as a guide, looks like a standard seatpost is $37 (but there are some other, higher-priced options), a seatpost clamp is $17.50, and a saddle similar to the original is $19. Based on the color, if it is a U.S. model, it is a 2007. See:

    well that was an amazing waste of time! the guy shows up 1/2 hour late. only gears 2-4 work. only the front break works. the bike doesn't stay unfolded. and it's 2007. wow...

    invisiblehand, can you put a link to that? I've searched the forums (even using "advanced search") and have not found that thread.

    Don't worry about it. I have had mixed results with search too.
