Dahon Cadenza 2006 is a great, stable, fast-folding bicycle. Unlike Bromptons etc this is a real bicycle that folds in 3 seconds. That could make all the difference between sitting and standing in the train.
It is stable, fast-riding bicycle.
Very unfortunately, Dahon changed the folding mechanism from 2007 onwards. The 2006 model does not require tools to fold and folds in 3 seconds. From 2007 onwards you need a tool to unlock and fasten screws, and the folding takes 30 seconds. This means you will lose seats boarding the busy commuter trains in the evening.
I can not understand why Dahon changed a well functioning design to one that does not. Try to find and get the 2006 model if you can.
