Can Downtube Nova handelpost be replaced w/ Dohan Radius V or MU EX handlepost

Hello,

I have 2010 Downtube Nova and want to replace its handlepost with a handlepost from Dahon.
Did anyone try this? Will it be possible?

Shim

I have never tried this personally, but am thinking it would be impossible. Downtube uses a standard 1 1/8 inch threadless headset while Dahon uses a proprietary system. The only reason I can think of that you would want to do this is to get more extension. If that's the case, then consider the Aber Halo Stem: http://www.thorusa.com/dahon/technical/aberhallo.htm

does your current post look like this :
http://www.thorusa.com/dahon/recall.pdf

if it is a dahon revolve stem ...than yes it could be replaced by a Radius 5 ( V ) .... lets say you have a non height adjustable radius 3 than you could switch to a 2 piece version of it....

but best is if you make us some pics in unfolded und folded ..... just to make sure

The OP has a Downtube Nova which takes a standard 1 1/8 inch headset and stem so I don't think any Dahon handleposts (except pre - 2005) would be compatible.
