    Dear all,

    Like many Dahon owners, I have to up to now considered myself 'up the creek without a paddle' when it comes to sourcing Dahon parts.

    Well, we need fear no longer - our misery is at an end.

    Previously, Fisher Outdoor were the sole importer/distributor and they put it VERY politely, not as focussed on the Dahon side of their business as they were with other things. I and my LBS found it very difficult to get any information out of them, let alone parts.

    Well, a firm called C.H.White (Malmesbury, Wilts) have come to the rescue. They have done a deal with Fisher and purchased their entire stock of Dahon parts. These can be ordered online at:

    This site has virtually everything you will need.

    I ordered some parts the other day and the service was v.quick and efficient. Got my stuff inside 2 working days.

    Please note that this is not a shameless plug for C.H.White - I have no connection with them. It's just that I am elated, having just been able to rebuild my folder after trying to get spares for over 2 years.

    Good stuff, looks great! Unfortunately about 12 months too late for me, sold my Cadenza as a repair job when the hinge wore out. Thanks for the info, will bookmark in case i ever take the plunge again.

    I wanted an Arclite rack for my trike (needed something for a 20" wheel). Had trouble getting one. Decided I could do without rack and create custom homemade luggage.

    Now I can get a rack! But I've made my luggage!

    I'm torn... Do I get a rack and change plans? (it'll need some bodging on anyway) Or not. Or get a rack and save it for later... Very cheap.... But I do have an expensive two weeks away coming up...

    I suppose, my luggage wouldn't cope with camping kit, I really would need a rack for that....

    Oh hell, that's another £20 spent...

    Ok, I've ordered a rack. I won;t be fitting it for this trip, but it's worth having for the future....

    So, thanks for the tip <through gritted teeth> And thanks, properly:smile:

    Mind you, the website is a bit rough...
