Dahon/TERN 20" Forks - Dismantling/Changing
Ok I have kind of asked this within other threads and even done some searches on line but have had little response and very little on line.
Its strange surely people do a lot of mechanics/repairs on their Dahons ? certainly when I search on line for Brompton mechanics there is loads of stuff including how-to videos ?
Anyway I now have my new Dahon Uno and was looking at how the front fork is attached. It appears the fork head is held both by the frame which is tightened with a/couple of bolts and what looks like a large hex bolt that screws inside the top of the fork tube to load/hold the bearings/fork in place.
This threaded inside part of the fork top tube thus makes them specific/bespoke to other fork manufactures ?
So my Question is do Tern use the same method of securing forks and are all Dahon forks interchangeable with Dahon/fitted in the same way. I am only talking about the forks for 20" wheels and primarily ask as I may want to swap out the existing Dahon Uno aluminum ones for steel Dahon/Tern ones ?
