    Hello I'm new , so's my broken ankle

    I'm new to the forum but now I've broken my ankle I've got a lot of time on my hands.

    I've had to undergo surgery to screw a stainless steel plate to the broken bone after falling off my Dahon Cadenza outside sunny Cricklewood station.

    Unfortunately, as I peddled off, the saddle, seat post and the top part of the frame snapped clean off around the seat post stay, resulting in me falling to the floor and breaking my ankle.

    After the accident the saddle, BioLogic PostPump seat post, seat post clamp and the severed top part of the frame were all still together.
    The frame had been creaking in the days leading up to the failure.
    My concern is that the design of the BioLogic PostPump will encourage a failure of this nature.

    I commuted to work every day for years when I lived in London on a Scott S2 hybrid and loved it.
    When the family moved out to Hertfordshire I tried a loads of ways to get cycling into my daily commute that also involves a 25 mile train ride.
    The latest solution was the Dahon Cadenza on the train and getting off 3 stops early. This gave me a 5 mile cycle each way, potentially saving 1000 on my yearly train pass.

    I've been laid up for a month now, can't wait to get the cast off in a weeks time and start riding again.

    I would hate to think that someone else could suffer the same fate as me.

    Has anyone else had similar experiences with a Dahon Cadenza?
