Lbs Put Jetstream P8 Front Fork On Backwards
I was surfing craigslist and came across a 2008 Dahon Jetstream P8, but it didn't look right. The seller stated that it had just been serviced at the LBS.
I emailed him and told him not to ride his bike until it was fixed properly. He had taken it to the shop to have the recalled handlepost replaced and while doing this work they installed it 180 out of whack so that the front suspension fork faced backwards.
Somehow the owner didn't even notice this, because he took multiple photos and posted it on CL to sell.
He thanked me for pointing it out and was taking it back to the shop to have it fixed. He even said that this is a shop that he has working on all of his bikes. I am not sure which is more sad, the owner or the shop.
Anyway, thought I would share this chuckle
May the Fold be with you
