It’s quite the month for Boston reviews! We’ve already heard from Matt Allyn at Bicycling.com, who gave rave reviews to the Boston. And now we’ve just got another review of the Boston from Road.cc, a UK based site, as well as its 8-speed variation, the Boston 8.
You can read the whole review for yourself here, but my favourite excerpt is “Usually when you’re talking about a folding bike there’s plenty to talk about on the subject of how the fold affects the ride, but not here. I wouldn’t advocate riding blindfolded but were you to try it you’d be hard pressed to tell this was a folder, there’s nothing to give it away.”
I like this especially, because it’s exactly how I feel – if you didn’t know you were riding a folding bike, on a Montague, there’s no way you could tell from the ride. Also, while I don’t recommend it either, I find something really funny about the idea of riding a bicycle blindfolded.
Back to the matter at hand, the Road.cc reviewer enjoyed riding both the Boston and the Boston 8, and would definitely recommend them to someone looking for a folding bike.
How Would You Rate the Boston/Boston 8?
Do you ride a Montague folding bike? What do you think of the ride? Portability vs. Performance? What would you tell someone who was thinking of getting one themselves? Have you been able to test ride one? Let us know what you think!
