Folding bike dealers in Boston?

Hello,

I have a friend living in the Boston/Brookline area who would like to try out some affordable (< $1k) folding bikes. Can anyone recommend any knowledgeable dealers in the area I could direct him to?

Thanks,

Scott

Harris Cyclery out in Newton sells Bike Friday Tikits--the base model is right at the edge of your stated budget.

Harris also has Brompton, I think. Also Wheelworks has Dahons. Not many to test ride, though.
