Foldie But Goodie – XO Review

Montague in GQ Magazine

While they’re undeniably convenient, folding bikes rarely handle well outside the city, and, even then, they often look a bit wonky. Montague’s new 27-speed XO SwissBike, however, is a welcome exception: Its red aluminum frame looks good (if not aggressively stylish), and it’s rugged enough to handle a mountain trail. That comes courtesy the hydraulic front-disc brakes, a Rockshox suspension fork, and the one-step CLIX branded wheel-release system that won an (actually quite prestigious) Eurobike Design Award. Better yet, you can unfold it in less time than it took to read this post: about 30 seconds, without tools.
