Dahon pedal replacement

Hi,
Just acquired a 7 speed Dahon Boardwalk. The bike has one folding, and one fixed pedal. I am thinking of replacing with a quick removal set. Any recommendations?
Thanks

do you want to be clipped in or not. personally I use cheap all metal pedals on my folding bike, although the road and mountain pedals from shimano as well as look pedals are nice if you want to clip in... the list goes on from there.

I am looking for not clipped. I wear size 12 shoes, no small pedals.

I put MKS FD-7 folding pedals on all my foldies. A bit heavy but seem really robust and low friction.

I worry about someone stealing a removable pedal and making it unridable.

do you need to fold or remove the pedals?

I only ask as some of my folders only get folded in situations where space is not tight, so fixed pedals are fine.

So you take the pedals (if you have to leave the bike locked but unattended) and you make the bike unrideable as a deterrent to theft.
