Thanks, didn't scroll all the way down.



I don't have a Dahon/Tern handy to give it a shot. Maybe someone else will order one made of steel/aluminum and report back.

My 1st plastic adapter broke but I had a stripped screw. I rethreaded the screw and my 2nd plastic adapter has handled everything I've thrown at it. Imho metal would be overkill. I'd rather it fail than my headtube become the failure point.

Hi. A message for slickginger - I would like to buy an adaptor block but as the price is just over the limit I would pay import duty plus 20GBP handling fee which makes this very expensive. Do you ship these from UK or Europe?
At 15GBP there would be no fees - how about a flash sale?

What's wrong with the angle correction?

Less reliable than when the block is pointing upward like on the Brompton?

That angle looks interesting. I haven't noticed any issues with my wires or turn radius. My plastic adapter is going strong 2 years in. The mounted bag makes for a perfect commuter.

Added some pics to show how the non angled version doesn't obstruct the brakes or wires on my Dahon.
