bike friday question

For those that own bike Fridays. I understand they are custom made? Or just built as ordered? If custom made, is the horizontal tube that connects the seat tube to the down tube made to a custom length? This would be especially impoy for taller riders like myself. On a Brompton it's a fixed length and I've never been comfortable on a Brompton as it has always felt cramped with the effective top tube length.

Bike Fridays are available in sizes, every 2cm. They adjust the boom length for each size, then cut the seat mast and stem riser to your height.

I have the opposite problem, the Brompton reach was just way too far for me and moving the seat forward is not an adequate solution as that creates all sorts of issues with the knees. So I went BF and miy bike fits me, not messing after to try to make it fit..
