    That is of course possible but it would be nice to have a solution that is narrower than the seatpost so that height is no problem. I was thinking along the lines of a bung that goes inside the post,...

    The front fork hinge.Spray some WD-40 at individual spots, ride, until you have the culprit which would hopefully be quiet at some point. Could also be the headset.

    I was going to suggest something like that but realised the seatpost will stick at a certain maximum height. That height may be too low.

    So far my bike has 2 problems.

    1. I can't get the 2 clamps to keep proper tension on the headset. It works loose quickly. I am thinking of adding a friction increaser powder like silica powder...

    Just how big would you think the gravel is? I tried to ride a trail with my Birdy once, the gravel was about 1" and that was too bad. We took to the roads after just a short while. I think soft Big...

    The exact size is important. 30mm is encouraging, it needs to be 28.8mm. If you can borrow a vernier caliper from a hardware shop that would help.

    The Genesis has a forwards-angled stempost, something which I have not seen on China bikes. So just check that before saying they are the same. (This is a Dahon Biologic design feature.)

    At this stage it would be good to get a list going, to get the quote closer to final.

    There are some other nice extras that might be considered, such as matching Ti headsets and Ti chain wheels....

    The mods will definitely be included if this goes ahead.

    It is very tricky to get the seat tubes' alignment right. My frame was botched and it is hard to remove or insert the seatpost. If you are...

    If you have the latest Brompton with replaceable chain wheel, the bottom bracket is not standard taper. You will have to get a bb too.

    I recommend a Brompton M6R. Russ and Laura of pathlesspedalec have used this to tour. Plus it is by far the most convenient folder. Not the fastest. 10miles is very doable on it.

    A pic of what it looks like at the top would be good. If the whole thing is one solid structure, then sawing the top off and installing a bike stem might work, if the diameter is 1-1/8".
