ISO: Dahon Mu Uno Handlepost

I'm trying to locate a Dahon Mu Uno handlepost (or Speed Uno) to put on my Speed P8. The handlepost on my Speed Uno (Duo actually,...) is the perfect length for me, and the 2 bikes pretty much share the same handlepost. There's no flex, and I don't need adjustability. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated,...

PS: I've attempted to order a litepro & fnhon handlepost from a few different sellers online, and I've had no success.

First, ThorUSA doesn't have what I want in stock (unfortunately).

Second, aliexpress doesn't seem to have a reliable way of selecting EXACTLY what I want to order. I don't feel like spending my $$$ there, and getting a Dahon Jetstream length (aka SHORT) handlepost. I'm looking for the ability to purchase a specific item,...

Thank you all the same.

It's close. The Jetstream post is about 11" total (I own one), the one on my Dahon Speed Duo is about 16", and the one is about 14.5". I'm shooting for 420mm, if I can locate it.

OK, I found this on eBay , but it's aftermarket.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Folding-Bicy...NY5ctT1RMMuDvg

Does anyone know where I can get a genuine Dahon Speed/Mu Uno handlepost? I'm looking for the best quality,...

Again, @ThorUSA doesn't have it. He only has the Jetstream handlepost. I would know, as I bought it from his store awhile back.

there's no problems with ali, it's same as ebay, look at seller's rating and feedbacks.

My issue with aliexpress is the ability to select color, and NOT the size I want. It's slightly different with eBay,...but with both the quality is questionable. Especially since I located a 420mm handlepost on eBay. There were a few negative reviews for the handlepost itself,...so the quality is suspect. I highly doubt it will be better on aliexpress.

litepro & fnhon = the same quality as dahon and tern.
when you buy this item you need to leave remark to seller which color and size you need.

Bicycle Parts & Bicycle Accessories or you can try to find in this shop, original Tern and Dahon components with shipping to US

Still no luck. Contemplating calling Dahon in California.

Dahon normally doesn't sell parts (to consumers), distributors may have some but not many. That's why Dahon copies (Litepro, Fnhon) are so popular in China. Aliexpress (for people outside China ) or Taobao (more for people in China) are basically where you can buy these parts. As for the quality, I have used some Fnhon and Litepro as well as Dahon, there is no noticeable difference. These copiers even make improvements here or there. And these are bike parts not rocket parts, it's actually very had to make a bad copy

I'd have no problems with a fnhon or litepro replacement stem, none at all. I have a problem with the fact I can't find one of either brand that will ship to the USA.

I guess I'll wait for you to get it in stock then. I'd prefer the one piece,... perfect ride w/no flex that I can detect.

PS: if you can find me a litepro one piece stem I'd order that! WooHoo!!!

Maybe someone in a country that has them would be willing to ship it to you. You could purchase it and send it to their address and they can mail it to you. You can PayPal the shipping cost to them. I'd do it for someone if it were a small part. They wouldn't even have to pack it. Just mail it.

Mu Uno handlepost is a tad to long, imho. Also, if you have a rear brake lever, you might get conflict when folding.
I bought a FNHON 31,5cm handlepost for my Mu and it is great regarding fold, quality and stiffness. Also significantly lighter.

I'd gladly pay someone on the forums (via PayPal ) to purchase & ship the appropriate handlepost to me.

I want the longer length so I can ride in an upright position, as I tend to get neck and shoulder pain when I ride in a more aggressive position. As for weight, I don't mind if it's heavy. It's solid, and I'm more than willing to deal with it.

The fold will conflict with your right brake lever. Better go with some cm shorter.
You can order vie taobao agent.
