The P24 is my main bike. I ride it the most so that tells you which one I like the most for day to day use.
Yes, I ride it in rain too, it is fine. I did change the brake pads to kool stops but I am very particular about braking power. The original brake pads were not faulty or anything.
As with most Dahon bikes, you have to tweak some of the nuts in the hinged areas once in a long while but that is no major maintenance.
The Dual Drive is a neat gearbox. I find that I use it more often in street traffic than the 8 gears in the rear cassette simply because it is convenient (it is an IGH, and I can change gears while stationary).
The modifications you see on my Mu P24 were just my personal preferences (example: I wanted my handlepost and handlebar stiffer and fold outwards instead of inwards). I added the rack and fenders because my model did not ship with those.
