Dahon Eezz and Jifo Fold

Can anyone tell me what happened to this type of fold from Dahon. There was also a 20 inch version as I don't recall the name of it. I think it was the Vix d8 or something like that. Anyway was there a problem with this type of fold. Have there been any recalls for this type of fold. I have the eezz and when unfolded it feels solid but I will say that folding it down is not fun but no real complaints.

Never seen any in the wild. Maybe they've been end-of-lifed due to low sales?

The 20" is the Qix D8. There's now a 16" (305) Qix D3, which I ~think~ has supplanted the EEZZ D3. The Qix models fold vertically but do not have the semi-automatic seatpost lowering fold of the Jifo & EEZZ.

I get the impression from various Dahon forums that the little side-folding K3 is a yuge sales hit. Certainly, its 3-speed derailleur cassette design is an improvement over the one on the EEZZ D3

Indeed: "Inspired by both the Jifo and EEZZ 16” bikes, the QIX D3 is the new 16” version."
