Montague folding frame sets are finally in stock! People like to have things their way, and for the first time, you can have your folding bike just the way you want it. Other folding bikes use small wheels, and several proprietary parts, limiting your ability to customize them. Montague bikes allow the use of any off the shelf components you want. There are thousands of possibilities, and a bare frame is a blank canvas just waiting for you to add your own style. With single speed, road, and mountain frames available, you can have a folding bike for any terrain.
The best thing about building a custom folding bike, is that IT’S FUN! You have control over every part that goes on your bike. If you want pink headset cups, or carbon wheels, or a super long travel suspension fork, you can have it! And if you’re handy with a wrench, putting it together is the best part. Or maybe that’s just me, I love working on bikes :).
In building up a single speed Boston, we took some video of the process, and created a time lapse movie. You can watch the entire build come together in just 4 minutes! Take a look, and you may be inspired to build your own.
