Unless you want basic standard bits like tyres, brake blocks, cables
etc.. getting spare parts for Dahons in the UK is almost impossible.
Even the dealers that list the parts don't actually seem to have them in
stock and the inability of the UK distributor to provide parts to dealers
and end users is legendary - just have a look in any Dahon forum. Some
of the US dealers seem to have a better range of parts although postage
can be quite hefty...

bikes are made by Dahon and their after sales service can't be any worse.
By the way, you can also get Dahon's bikes much cheaper from Germany via
The lack of backup and high prices in the UK is a serious impediment to
Dahons progress here...
