Folding Bikes Blog

Riding Natchaug: MTB

Here at Montague, the bikes we make are more than just folding bikes, they’re Real Bikes That Fold. We want you to be able to ride single track, gravel roads, and rocky paths, while having the freedom to keep your bike in the car trunk. We want you to ride 30 miles on road with the performance and feel you expect from a road bike, then fold that bike for the train ride home. We’re cyclists, and we build bikes that we love riding too. Take a look at some shots from this weekend’s excursion:

    excellent choice of folding bike, good option to keep in homes with little space, to transport in normal cars and the freedom to use it as a normal MTB, also you can use for communting.

    I would like to seek the advise of the experts in this thread. I recently purchased a montague paratrooper pro and I would like to shave off some of its weight for frequent airline travel. Can anyone recommend which parts can I replace to make it lighter? I was thinking of replacing the fork with an air type shock but could not find a model that is compatible (unless anyone know of one) . Also considering replacing the handle bars with a carbon one. Appreciate the assistance.
