I have been using my espresso for a couple of years now, riding 100 miles a week (except when I am too tired and jump on the train). This is a fantastic bike - really well made for the price, a pleasure to ride and capable of very fast speeds (wind allowing!)
Downside is that some of the parts needed replacing earlier than I would expect (the gear shifter completely broke after a couple of months, the seat post pump has broken twice - the first time I got a replacement from Dahon no problem, the second time I didn't bother - I prefer not having to align the seat correctly after every puncture anyway).
One thing to be aware of is that this doesn't fold really small like a brompton - if you are commuting by train this is really a token gesture to the ridiculous bike ban rules, so on busy trains it can be a bit of a hassle.
