So, I did go ahead and bought the Dahon Boardwalk S1 from Performance Bike (Though, now I can't find it on their website... odd.) After getting it fit for me, I took it out for a nice leisurely test run around the block. Its handling is far superior to my Citizen, along with the sturdiness of the bike. The hinges are nice and tight, and I feel like I can actually put my (ailbet light) weight into the machine. Also, the whole bike is silent, and to be honest, a fun ride. It seems to go the same speed as my Citizen when I rode it to work. I feel this bike will be perfect for my commute (though, I still may add the S2C hub later for more speed). The bike fully mounted is lighter by a few pounds than the Citizen, which is always nice!
Some cons: The paint seems to chip easy. Also, the front cog seems a little warped, but only slightly. I wish I could adjust the handlebar height, but it is at a good height for me, so its a moot point. Mounting things to the bike was a little difficult (but possible) and the rear rack seems like it isn't as sturdy as the Citizen.
And of course, the pictures. (Lights, emergency pump, small tool bag, folding crate, and the necessary-for-Phoenix water bottle, all mounted)
