Wanted: Bike Friday for Test Ride

I'm considering buying a Bike Friday bicycle. There are no dealers in my area (Hamilton, Ontario) or within a 500km radius.
Wondering if there are any Bike Friday owners in the GTA with approx. 54cm frame that I can test ride.

I'm looking at buying this model but I don't think the test ride has to be restricted to that.

Bike Friday test ride

Hi,
I'm not terribly close to you, but I would be happy to let you ride my BF. I have a Pocket Rocket Pro that is perhaps a bit larger than you want -- maybe 56, though it is hard to say what size a bike without a top tube really is. I am 5' 9" tall. I also have a NWT, but it has an e-assist motor on it, making it ride quite a bit different from the vanilla experience. I live in Ithaca, NY -- which google says is 3 1/2 hours from Hamilton. I went to St Catharines once to sell a bike to a guy from Toronto; so this doesn't seem like an insuperable distance.

As much fun as it would be to have you come here (since we are Warm Showers hosts, you would be welcome to stay overnight, of course!), you might get more convenient responses by posting your inquiry on the Bike Friday email list, the "Yak." There is info about the list, a link to archives, and the subscription form at http://mx.bikefriday.com/mailman/listinfo/yak

So, visit us, by all means. But, if it's too far, try the Yak list and I bet you'll get bites from closer by. I know there are BFs in Toronto, and I personally know at least one in Rochester.
