Boston 8 Folding Bike Reviews:
pynchonian from bikeforum.net says:
"I received my Montague Boston 8 in the mail three weeks ago, and I've been riding it religiously ever since. Unboxing it took a while. It's well packed in two nested boxes with plenty of padding. It's shipped folded and fully assembled. Once I removed all the cardboard and packing material, I just attached the front wheel and hit the road. First impressions: It's a gorgeous bike. The internal hub fits well with the clean lines of the bike's style. Talking the bike out for its maiden voyage, I was surprised to find no flex at all in the ride, despite the folding mechanism. My old Dahon Matrix 2007 had a bit of flex. This bike has none. The bike really shines on city streets, and getting around Union City and Palo Alto was a blast. Conclusion: This bike is a solid (dare I say perfect?) commuter bike. It's folds when you need it to, but otherwise it's a full-size bike. It's a solid upgrade from my Dahon Matrix 2007, and the 8 speed Shimano Nexus shifter covers more than enough gear range to get me over San Francisco's hills."
