Just took delivery of the Tern Link D8 from REI. While I was about to leave the store and take the bike home. I realized there are some kinda of plastic hanging on the metal right underneath the seat post. REI staff told me it was part of the packing materials and there are no real use. After doing some investigation myself. I realized that is the chain guard piece that came with the bike. After further discussion with the staff, they offered to give me a after market piece for free. However, the guard was not long enough to prevent the chain from popping out. REI staff was nice enough to order the replacement part from Tern and arrange a repair once the part is at the store. So far, I am quite happy with the bike. I gotta admit, the Tern chain guard are made out of very cheap plastic. I assume a lot of people have the same experience?
Since I will be using the bike for commuting, I probably will need to get one of those cover bag to bring the bike on and off the bus/car. I do know Tern does have a saddle cover bag for $45 bucks. Has anyone try those Dahon bag from ebay.
Will that fit a Tern bike in it?
In addition, any good ideas for rear panniers for folding bike without change the factory rear rack. Trying to be price cautions here
Thanks you for reading
