I want to bring this beautiful midnight blue bike, with Brooks saddle and moustache handlebars, into a LBS for assembly, but I can't seem to fold it. It won't fit into my small car without folding. I read the instructions for folding utilizing this LockJaw Hinge technology(see illustration included of LockJaw Hinge) I'm not sure which version Hinge I have, or if I have to adjust any additional bolt(s) before folding. I just assumed I'd have to adjust the OC bolt (see image 4) and now I see there are 2 other bolts. I don't want to over tighten or strip the hinge. I'm starting to get a bit of buyer's remorse, more so knowing that none of the bike shops in South Florida area have a single folder in their inventory.
Has anyone dealt with this LockJaw technology before and have had to make adjustments before folding the very first time? Is there a Dahon tech support desk in the U.S? I don't think Amazon knows the answer.
