This is my first post here.
I've just bought a Dahon Mu SL in absolutely as new condition. It is clear that this bike has barely been ridden at all. I've taken it out a few times and it is fabulous.
I've read a bit here about the recall that happened relating to some 2008 Dahons. I gather that that was a US only thing (I'm in Australia) However, I was wondering if anyone remembers enough about the event to cast some light on whether I should be concerned about my handlepost hinge?
My serial number is D710717706. I'm led to believe that the bike was originally purchased in the USA.
Reading this page: (http://www.thorusa.com/dahon/technical/recall.pdf) I have all the requirements for being affected by this issue.
I imagine that any official follow up with this is unlikely however it would be great to know in what manner these hinges failed.
Perhaps I should simply replace the part (assuming they are available somewhere) and be done with it.
Any thoughts, opinions, memories?
cheers, Mikey Floyd
