Independent Review

“The bike arrived fully assembled and very well packed. It was in pristine condition and I was able to ride it after unpacking and reading the instructions. The shifters were properly indexed and the bike rode, shifted and braked perfectly. While this bike (like all bikes) is a compromise, it has exceeded my expectations. The bike defies easy categorization. It folds into an easy-to-store and -carry package, but it feels and rides like a solid, full frame bike. There are seven speeds, but these are perfectly adapted for most road conditions – think the opposite of a big-box store bike. I haven’t clocked the bike with a speedometer yet, but it feels fast. I have no trouble keeping up with NYC traffic and consistently pass hybrid and delivery bikes. Bottom line: this is an incredible bike that’s a reflection of the care and thought put into its design and execution. Consider this bike even if folding features aren’t a high priority.”

“I can’t say enough about this bike. From the weight, to the functionality, to the looks, I can find no fault with this bike. Working on a large college campus, this was one of the best investments I’ve made, letting me drive to campus and then get around to points A, B, and Q in comfort, speed, and style. There’s a reason the US Army Rangers use Montague.”

Crosstown Folding Bike DirectConnect System

DirectConnect™ Folding System

New for 2016 is the DirectConnect folding system, which removes the quick release from the top tube, provides an easier folding experience and larger clamping surface between the two halves of the frame. A flip of the quick release lever and your bike folds to a compact size.

Handlebar Height Adjustment

The Octagon offers all the benefits of an angle adjustable stem without shortening “reach” when raised. This unique design allows for handlebar height to be changed while preserving the way the bike handles and rides. Also, with the octagonal shape of the post, steering remains engaged while raising or lowering the stem.

700c x 35mm Tires

Each bike in our pavement series comes equipped with 700c wheels. They offer a significantly better ride than the 24″, 20″, or 16″ wheels common on other folding bikes. The combination of 700c wheels and wide 35mm tires keep it smooth over potholes and enhance handling, making it ideal over pavement and trails.
