One of the best things about Montague folding bikes is that they all use industry standard components. What’s so great about that? If you ever need a quick tune up or a part replaced, your local bike shop (or even you) can do it no problem. And when industry standard components fit right on your folding bike frame, you can completely customize your Montague folder. Whether it’s a stylish new color scheme you’re looking for or lighter weight parts, anything is possible. Check out the completely custom Montague bikes below for some inspiration.
A Folding City Bike:
This single speed Boston got an overhaul with some fresh white components and bullhorn bars. If you want a lightweight folder, go with the Boston. With it’s simple design, it’s already our lightest bike and with the right component upgrades you can get it under 20 pounds!
A Folding Road Conversion:
Here is a Montague mountain bike frame that has been converted to be a lean road machine. With drop bars, narrow lightweight wheels, a custom drivetrain for road gearing and a solid front fork, this bike is ready to compete with any road bike out there.
A Folding XC Bike:
This XO mountain bike has just about every possible part upgraded for off road riding. The highlights include a white Fox Racing front fork, an Easton carbon handlebar and an all Shimano Deore XT drivetrain. There’s even some frame mounted packs to carry the essentials on the trail.
A Folding Road Bike:
This rider transformed their Crosstown from a 7 speed around-town bike to an 18 speed lightweight roadie. He even uses it in local races. And with a carbon seat post, FSA cranks, and a new drivetrain and stem, he doesn’t have any problems keeping up. When the race is over this upgraded Montague can still be folded for the car trunk.
