Is this the year you finally decide that you want to get more exercise? Do something good for the environment? Cut down on your expenses? If so, then riding a Montague folding bike is a great place to start. With a full-size folding bike, you’ll find that it’s easy to motivate yourself to ride every day.

No More Excuses!

Montague bikes can fold to fit into any trunk - even the back of a Mini Cooper.

Live a long way from your work? Try to make 2012 the year of the Park-and-Pedal commute: you can put a Montague folding bike in your trunk, drive partway, and then ride the rest of the way in. It’s an easy way to save money on gas and parking expenses.

Wary of winter riding? You can choose to ride your Montague folding bike, or to take it along for the ride. If it’s clear in the morning, ride your bike to work. If it the weather turns ugly during the day and you don’t want to ride home, you can just fold the bike up and take it home with you on the bus, train, or subway…no need to brave slippery winter roads or leave your bike in the office overnight.

Live in a small apartment? A Montague folding bike can fit just about anywhere. And unlike small-wheeled folding bikes, you get the convenience and portability of a folding bike, without sacrificing ride quality.

Bicycling Magazine Loves Montague Folding Bikes

You don’t have to take our word for it, either. Recently Matt Allyn, a reviewer for Bicycling magazine, tried out the Montague Boston, giving it rave reviews. You can read his review in its entirety, but if you’re looking for the abridged version, Allyn says of the Montague Boston, “I just saw a singlespeed perfectly suited to life in a cramped city apartment already full of bikes….It proved to be a snappy and responsive ride. It’s a bike I’d ride, even if I wasn’t short on space.”

East or West, Folding Bikes are Best

Montague folding bikes can fit anywhere - even in the closet.

If you’re looking for a folding bike, a Montague is a great option, because along with the convenience of a folding bike, you get the ride quality of a full-size bicycle. Even if you’re just in the market for a bicycle and haven’t considered folding bikes specifically, you should take a look at Montague folding bikes. You’ll find they have the same performance and handling capabilities as any non-folding bike, but because they fold, you’ll have so many different transportation options available to you (bike on public transit/bike in the car trunk/bike for travel).

And since folding bikes fit covertly in the closet, next to the door, or behind the couch, your Montague won’t become the new centerpiece in your living room either (until you want to demonstrate its folding capabilities to all your guests, that is).
