looking for bike shop in Frederick, MD area

Hi all,

Can someone please provide a referral to a quality bike shop, who sells folders, in the Frederick, MD. area. Since there are none in my local area, I am hoping that a larger market will provide an opportunity for a look/test ride, during my upcoming visit to the Frederick, MD area.

Thanks in advance,

Jeff

PA via IL, to get to MD would be that GPS going on the fritz. anti-invasion mode.

Several Brompton sellers near, below #4 poster mentions the closest.

Not exactly in Frederick, but I don't think it is very far is Mt. Airy Bicycles:
Mt Airy Bicycles
4540 Old National Pike
(Rt. 144)
Mt. Airy MD 21771

I've never been to this shop, but I have been to their sister store in College Park.

Update - I went to Mt. Airy Bicycles. They have an awesome inventory and the guy working there are super nice. It was a real pleasure and very educational.

I rode a Brompton, Dahon Eco 6, and Bike Friday New World Tourest. I found the Bike Friday and Dahon super comfortable right from the get-go. I felt squished on the Brompton. I'm sure, given some adjustments, the Brompton could be comfortable too.
