    Light? Cable routing? Hard to say without a picture, though it's likely to be there for a reason!
    Perhaps it stops chipping /clips to something when the post is folded?

    And hey - less of the clown comments boyo!
    At least we don't wear lycra!

    When you fold the handlepost down, that plastic nub buttons into a plastic portion on the frame to secure the handlepost when the bike is folded.

    Ummm, I do ....and when I'm on the Wasp.




    As for the piece of plastic with the two screws.......maybe that's Dahon's feeble attempt for a secondary safety devise for when the stem hinge breaks....you know, to put the worried owner's mind at rest
