I am new here. This is my very first post.
I just purchased my new 2013 Dahon Mariner D7 folding bike from my local bike shop.
They told me it is a 2013 model.
I was really excited about my new bike.
Until I tried to fold it....and that is when I realized that there is no magnetix system...
instead, there is a very weird plastic locking system. Please see the attached picture.
Did Dahon change the locking system?? when did this happen? By the way, the plastic lock is already cracked...
Am I missing something? I thought magnetix system is a great feature for the Dahon bike.
If you have any thought or suggestion on this matter, please please let me know.
Thank you so much.
