Octagon Steering System Available From QBP

 

CAMBRIDGE, MA – January 3, 2011 Montague Corporation, a leader in full-size folding bikes and components for over 20 years, today announced that Octagon, a tool-free handlebar height adjust system, will be distributed by Quality Bicycle Products. The system is now available as an aftermarket component upgrade for all bikes with 1 1/8” threadless steel steerer tubes.

The Octagon system, already used on Montague’s line of full size 700c folding pavement bikes, allows consumers a more convenient option for handlebar height adjustment, anywhere, anytime, without the use of tools and up to 120 mm of adjustable length. It fits all standard threadless 1 1/8” steel steerer tubes and is comparable in weight to quill stems.

“The feedback from customers using Octagon on their Montague pavement bikes has been fantastic and we receive regular inquiries from consumers asking where they can get the after-market product.” said David Montague, President and founder of Montague Corporation. “Our dealer research also reinforced a strong interest by independent bike shops to carry Octagon so we are thrilled to make the product available through QBP.”
