Dahon P8 Glide Adjustment Question

I have a friend I work with who bought a Dahon P8 Glide. It ended up bing a bit too large for her and she is finding she has to lean way forward to reach the handlebars comfortably.

This is putting a lot of her weight on the hands and she wants to know if there any other way to reduce the reach to the handlebars?

She already has the seat moved forward as much as possible.

Thor & Dynocoaster,

Thanks, I've passed the information along. Thor, what are you charging for a replacement tire for the glide? Her dog chewed up the big apple on it.
