Brompton "S" SF Bay area?

I'm interested in ordering a S6L Plus, but Chanell (foldabikes) only had "M"s in stock to ride, and doesn't know when he'll have an S.

The "M" bars are much too high and back for me (like most folders) so I'd like to compare with an "S" before actually plonking down a million dollars.

Anyone in the SF Bay area willing to let me ride their "S"? You can ride my Dahon MU SL if you want to!

I recently bought an S6L+ from, the only place in the USA that I could find them.

I'm 5'9"/169 pounds and my girlfriend is 5'9"/136-142(depending on season, can go to "bikini ready" 132 but that's rare, lol) and the bike fits us perfectly.

brompton s type handle

I found a store in SF (Noe Valley Cyclery) 4193 24th st. 415-647-0886 which has both S & M handle bar. I am about 5' and I feel so much more comfortable with S type over M. Give him a call and try it out there. Hoep this help.
