Folding bike dealers in Boston?
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?
Harris Cyclery out in Newton sells Bike Friday Tikits--the base model is right at the edge of your stated budget.
low and laid back
Harris also has Brompton, I think. Also Wheelworks has Dahons. Not many to test ride, though.
Folders in the Boston area
Cambridge Bicycle http://www.cambridgebicycle.com/design/folding.htm has a couple of models. Also you might have him/her try Montague http://www.montagueco.com/ they have 30 day test rides.
