    Brakes on my new Dahon Speed Pro Tt

    Hi, i have recently purchased a new dahon speed pro tt frm my LBS, and although i absolutely love it, i have to say the brakes are seriously spongy!! Dangerously spongy!! Im having problems stopping quickly from full speed, iv tried adjusting them but to no avail, iv read elsewhere that this is a common issue with the speed pro, has anyone here got one? Do you have the same issues? How have you over come this?

    Any help/advice greatly appreciated!

    If you have an '07 model with caliper brakes, un-wrap the bullhorns and re-route the cables to avoid the sharp turns.. there was a lot of discussion on the Dahon board.. if you have an '08 with V-Brakes, I haven't heard of any brake problems ..

    Did you take it back to the LBS to have them check it out? Kool Stop pads as a replacement?
