Montague In The News
"These aren’t the typical folding bikes with the circus wheels. These are bicycles made for athletes with standard size wheels and all the bells and whistles you could want that conveniently fold up and can be stored in your apartment or trunk of your car.
Whether you’re an avid cyclist or rely on your bike to get you around town, the convenience of always having your bike with you is invaluable. Even more vital, though, is how that bike performs. With an emphasis on performance before the convenience of folding, Montague Bikes is revolutionizing the folding bicycle for all cyclists."Sports Illustrated
"The bike kept up with taxis and felt comfortable on multi-hour rides. Thanks to 700c wheels, the Boston rode like a conventional flat-bar road bike, and it’s wide tires provided ample traction and some comfort over cracked streets. The bike is agile, but stable.
To Collapse the Boston, remove the front wheel, open a quick-release on the frame, and swing the two halves together, securing them with a hook-and-loop strap. Despite its standard wheels, the model is lighter than the others we tested."Bicycling Magazine
"This bike lives up to the hype. It features Montague’s patented folding system, and with a flip of the quick-release lever, it can fit into the trunk of your car or closet in 20 seconds.
Montague’s top-of-the-line folding bike, killing it in the convenience department and still ideal for race day, technical cross country, and fast single-track mountain rides."Robb Report
"Few bicycle companies need to measure the size of an aircraft door when designing a new model. But Montague Corp., based in Cambridge, Mass., did exactly that when the Pentagon said it needed a lightweight, foldable bike that special-operations forces could carry as they jumped out of airplanes into enemy territory.
Montague came up with the Paratrooper, which has a hardened aluminum frame and wheels and beefy pedals. It weighs only 29 lbs and can fold in less than a minute to a manageable size."TIME Magazine
"Off-roaders are resigned to loading their bikes on to the back of a car before heading off to the hills in search of challenging terrain. Now the Montague adds a new dimension to escaping into the wild. Its patented folding design was developed by the US military to allow soldiers to strap the bike to their chest before parachuting deep behind enemy lines.
It’s incredibly simple to unfold – a single sturdy pin controls the hinge – and it has 27 gears, mechanical disc brakes and full front shocks to help you make mincemeat of hostile territory. It also zips neatly into a bag which then fits into the boot, so weekend warriors don’t have to worry about getting their car dirty on the way home."The Guardian
"The Montague Paratrooper Pro bike is built like a tank, folds like a Swiss Army knife, and weighs less than body armor.
It handled fantastically whether climbing hills (the 27 gears came in handy), jumping ditches, coasting down steep slopes, or grinding through thick mud. Casually riding the Paratrooper Pro on the boardwalk was another story: It’s a simple attention grabber—and it works. It performs on pavement, too, especially when its suspension lock is engaged and the shock-absorbing front fork stays steady.
At first glance you might not think this 26-inch frame could fold into a 36 x 28 x 12–inch bundle. And it takes less than half a minute and just two lever flips—one for the first fold and one to remove the front tire."Popular Mechanics
"The Montague Urban has full-size 700C wheels, and can fold without any breaks in the frame’s tubing. It does this by swivelling around the seat tube, and doesn’t require the handlebars to fold down either.
Bonus features include a RackStand that is a luggage carrier, rear mudguard, kickstand and workstand all in one. Oh, and 21-speed Shimano gearing is very welcome.
A great bet for those wanting to store their bike indoors, or pop it in a car boot."Bike Radar
"Once I started riding the bike, I quickly understood that the Boston had more going for it than just storage economics. It’s fun, too. On bike paths, around town, and up and down hills, it proved to be a snappy and responsive ride. It’s a bike I’d ride, even if I wasn’t short on space.
Breaking down the bike takes no more than 30 seconds, and in its compact state, it’s easy to carry or stow in the back of a car (in addition to closet)."Bicycling Magazine
"If laughably titchy wheels and nerdy styling put you off folders, take a look at this rugged offering from Montague. Long revered in the US, the award-winning bikes have been deployed in Iraq, where their sturdy build and portability make them a marine’s best friend.
Landing on our shores later this month, the [Montague] is a fully fledged mountain bike that happens to fold in half."The Independent
