Dahon seat pump - cap keeps falling off?
I bought my first folder this July--a brand new Dahon Speed P8.
This morning when I arrived at work I found the cap on my seat pump was missing. This is the second seat pump cap to fall off my bike since I purchased it four months ago. Of course, it's now stranded somewhere along my route.
Does anyone else have this problem? I didn't see anything in the forums, but maybe I'm crazy. Dahon sent me a replacement cap the first time, but I don't want to have to ask them for a new one every three months. I was very careful when putting it on, but I did notice that it felt sort of unstable (if I turned it too far it would pop back off--almost as if the treads on the seat itself are stripped).
Anyway, just wondering if anybody else has this problem, or if anyone has any home fixes so that I don't have to keep bugging Dahon.
