    Dahon Handlepost Recall - still an issue, help needed

    Hi guys,

    I just put my UK purchased Speed TR frame number through the Dahon recall site, and I am told it needs replacing.

    Here are some issues I need help with

    1) The bike wasn't new when I got it, in 2009. Is there any chance the post will have been replaced by then, and how would I know by looking at it ?

    2) Given I don't have a dealer to return it to, how does one handle getting a replacement ? The Dahon site assumes it will be through a dealer.

    I could have sworn I checked the serial number before and it was ok, but I guess that was in another life, or in a dream or something.

    Any thoughts, guidance welcome.

    Bill

    Thor has the answer (of course ). See:

    Look for an R stamped on the handlepost.

    thanks Hank, and thanks indirectly Thor. Looks like I will have to find a replacement somehow.....
