I use full length cartridge V-brake pads on my dahon vitesse and the pads line up fine.
dahons use V-brakes, just shorter pads, for whatever reason. long V-brake pads will work fine with 20" wheels and keep the maintenance costs down.
and it's better to use the single compound in salmon colour, as there is some squealing with the dual compound.
alternatively, use some BBB triple compound pads. They seem to work better than koolstop salmon at keeping squeal down, but stopping you just as quickly.
