Chromoly will be dependable and, in the context of folding bicycles, at least, will be no heavier than aluminum. For those reasons among others, I chose the Dahon Speed.

Also, beware of the psychological draw of disc brakes. Unless the frame and fork are made for thru-axles (no mass-production folding bicycles that I know of are, yet), disc brakes are a scam, resulting in disappointment for the life of the bicycle.
