Good value & new better design folding mechanisms

PostedMay 16, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Looks great
It replaced the handlepost on my old dahon vitesse D5. This handlepost has new better design folding mechanisms and its good value but it takes 1-1/8" handle stem where as d5 has 1" handle stem so I also purchase a stem shim 1-1/8" to 1", I was a worry but with small adjustment that fits very well.

Boxed before the paint was dry!

PostedApril 24, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value
Cons: Poor quality
First delivery had to be replaced as the hinge mechanism was completely seized up. Took it back to an Evans shop and mechanics confirmed the same. I suspect the cause was the hinge was shut whilst the paint was still wet. Even the packing had patches of paint on it suggesting the item wasn't fully try when packaged up.
Also, I was expecting the part to be black anodized whereas both arrived painted rather than anodized.
