Montague Folding Bikes
bikes are folding bikes with full size wheels, rather than tiny little
folding bike wheels. They are available primarily as either mountain
bikes or commuter bikes, and are offered in a wide range of designs.
They will appeal especially to people who want a bike to take in their
R.V., boat or airplane for travel or in the trunk of their car, and
don’t need the especially small size of a mini folder – they just want
that extra bit of compactness, but still want a full featured and great
folders are travel bikes with one thing designed in mind: Making a
folding bike that rides well and fits in the trunk of your car without
the weaknesses normally inherent in folders!
How is this achieved?
unique folding design of having the rear triangle of the bicycle on a
pivot that swings beneath the main frame tube in order to fold means
that there are no frame hinges to crack, come loose or open while
riding. The Montague doesn’t have a silly folding stem that can do the
same things, either! These bikes can be considered as durable and usable
as any regular bicycle – consider that the Montague mountain models are
actually mountain bikes! So durable in fact, that the Montague
Paratrooper is developed for the U.S. Military, to allow airborne
soldier to drop out of airplanes and helicopters and into combat.
folding design also works entirely without tools, and is simple to
understand and operate. The front wheel also features the innovative
Clix system, which is a quick release that is much easier to use than a
normal one. Montague folders don’t require you to be a bike mechanic in
order to pack them down!
folding bikes usually only come in one size. Sometimes “one size fits
all” works, but with bikes this isn’t true! A good fitting bike is a key
to comfort and control, and Montague bikes are available in a wide
range of sizes, so you can get one that fits
just a bike that is meant to “generally fit”. Montague’s commuter models
are also able to have their stem height raised and lowered on the fly,
meaning that you have a little more adjustability right there.
when it comes to features, Montague comes prepared. Their mountain
bikes can be equipped with disc brakes, quality suspension forks, and
they feature tough cross country ready frames. The asphalt oriented
models are well thought out and rounded for everything from simple, low
maintenance city rides like the Boston to fully geared up commuting rigs
like the Navigator.
