I don't usually hang out in this forum, but since I've got some folder-specific questions, I thought you'd be the best to ask.
My parents just bought a pair of Dahon Folding Cloud ("Mu P8"?) off of Amazon, and they're annoyed that in the box is a warning that the bike must be serviced "professionally" or the warrantee will be void.
I'm a pretty fair hand at wrenching, have stripped down and rebuilt a number of bikes. I've never done anything on a folder, but looking online, everything seems pretty standard: 1x8 derailleur/cassette drivetrain, V-brakes, etc.
Anybody know about this "professional service" warrantee requirement? Is there anything critical I need to know about, mechanically or otherwise?
As a side note, Christmas is coming up -- any recommendations for accessories they might find useful now that they've got folders for the first time?
