I was riding a Dahon Speed D7 bicycle slowly when the handlepost hinge spontaneously cracked off and I fell off the bike. I was not seriously injured because I was riding very slowly but would have likely been very injured if it had happened moments earlier. There appears to be very little metal holding the handlepost to the frame and it appears to be a soft aluminum alloy without enough strength for normal use.
