How does this older Dahon stack up?
 
How do these older Dahons ride? Appalling, or with some judicious upgrading of components, OK? Flexy?

And how do they fold?

Here are an article written by John Forrester on older Da Hons (note the changed spelling):

RE:dahon
 
Jur, that is similar what I have, but mine is the Sturmey Archer 3 speed. You can see the thread here:

I don't know that I am qualified to answer, but I commuted to work this week on it (2 miles each way) and even though there are clunky noises, I really like it. For my short commute, it works very well for me.

BTW, I thoroughly enjoyed your website about you NZ trip. Very inspiring.
