    Are my Dahon's part of recall ?

    Steering is getting loose. Mainly a clamp issue on telescoping steer tube. While looking for online info I found this group and learned about the recall.

    So I am late to the party but I guess in this case better late than catastrophic failure.

    I have twin Boardwalk 7 speeds. Serials:
    D607T12183
    D607T12088

    I cannot find the serial number list.

    Images attached (new here so maybe not)

    Thank you in advance for any information

    I have that same thing on my Dahon. They require periodic adjustment.

    Hi,
    I have nice Dahon foldable bike, which has stayed unused for many years. Now there would be use for it and I started googling for maintenance tips. I run in to the steering post recall notice, which made me worried. Could you tell based on my serial number D708T12122, if my bike is affected?

    I need more info. what bike ? first owner? ( asking cause it might have been replaced already earlier ? Do you have an R stamped in the handlepost ? where are you located ? There is a chance it needs to be replaced.
