Had a Java Fit, had a Lambo too.. Honestly Lambo feels like a roadie foldie coz of itz "racelike' sitting geometry, from 'my personal opinion', itz long reach make U bend over like a roadie.. Which i literally dont like. Java Fit is more relax siting posture, more comfortable beside being fast too.. I feel more relax & comfortable on the Java Fit than the Lambo..

I'm now sourcing out a shorter stem maybe 50mm to shorten my reach.. Need to find a diameter of 25.4mm stem with 1 1/8 steerer tube size, silver colour though..

the stem for the java fit will be abit harder to find coz of the threaded fork it is using. Most aftermarket stems out there is mostly for newer unthreaded headsets. However i saw a extender at taobao which we can use to fix a unthreaded stem into our threaded fork. Will be a little tricky to order from taobao though... But they do have a lot of poison for foldies there... Full range of litepro products there too...

Sold my Tonino Lambo off & invest in JAVA FIT instead. Comfortable from top to bottom, front & back. No other  words to describe how COMFORT i am riding the JAVA FIT. Upright sitting posture, eliminates back problems, elbow joints discomfort. Basic saddle eliminates buttock discomfort issues. 8 speed gears are enuff fr standard speed cruising, depends on how fit U are.  JAVA FIT is fast too. No filmsy like "certain critics' claimed. Solid bike, so comfortable, i cycled continuously for roughly 1 hr 15 minits, so far no discomfort issues watsoever. I'm a full muscled 85kg guy, i'm not light but riding the JAVA FIT feels like i'm floating. I'm cycling with a smile. Love my JAVA FIT..

I am looking for a foldie too. Can the Java Fit say cruise at 30km/h continously, like in the stretch of road at Changi coast? tks
Or say at average of 30km/h along any stretch of straight road for 8km continously.

25km/h.. 30km/h.. 35km/h.. or 40km/h.. It all depends on YOU, not the bicycle.. Be it Dahon, Tern, Java or Tyrell.. Question is can YOU cruise continuosly 8km for a speed of 30km/h..? Java Fit wont retire for water or toilet breaks but we HUMANS do..  :)

I was also asking this question myself.
Does 20" bike have enough cadence for 30km/hr
you can try to get a feel of the cadence calculater here.
http://www.machars.net/bikecalc.htm

Looks like as long as front crank has 53t and rear cassette has 12t you will roughly need 65 rpm cadence for 30km/hr. I might be wrong though cos i am still a newbie learning. hopefully some pro can help correct me if i am wrong.

I am also contemplating between these 2 bikes. like the lamborghini but worry i need to bend forward too much. Having some neck problem right now.
