    Do you have to go to the original dealer? If not, Thor would be my choice.

    that is weird and can really not happen ...unless.... have oyu checked the handlepost ? ( Obviously u have ) it should have an R stamped into the lower plate. OR alternatively it should have a black yellow sticker on the upper part ... see last page in the right hand corner way down ..

    I currently do not have a handlepost to fit this bike, but the the seller should have no problem obtaining one from Dahon and do the switch for you as well.

    In case you dont get anywhere, please do not hesitate to get in contact we me and we will get this done...

    ( just not in this week as I dont have any and I am out of the office too boot )
    thanks thor

    thor,
    i did check it and there is no R stamped on the handlepost and no black yellow sticker. i doubt they checked it and opened the box to fix. in any case i'd rather that you send me the handle post at your convenience. let me know when you can do it. again, thanks a bunch.

    vic

    thanks dyno - sure love this too. have you taken any pics of your mezzo ? we're waiting.

    Forgive my ignorance but what will a 50T crankset accomplish? Will the current chain still fit or do you need to replace it?

    nothing really. it's just that i like changing and upgrading the parts of my folder bikes. i replaced the chain also not because it will not fit but just wanted to upgrade to a SRAM chain.

    I see. I was hoping it was to get maybe a little higher gear, then I would do the same heh.

    The Curve SL is a great little bike, but feels a bit fragile at times.
