Review: Montague Boston 8 Folding Bike

New England Boating Article

By Tom Richardson

Montague’s versatile Boston 8 folding bike is ideal for boaters. The model features an all-aluminum frame and full-size 700c wheels, as well as the simple, smooth, and hassle-free Shimano Nexus 8-speed internal gear hub and tool-free Octagon handlebar height adjustment system. As a result, the Boston 8 combines the simple aesthetics of a single speed with the practicality of an 8-speed bike.

The Shimano internal hub means that the Boston 8 has no exposed derailleur that can be bent or otherwise damaged when stashing the bike in a car trunk or boat. It can last long periods without maintenance, as the gears and shifting mechanism are lubricated with a special grease designed to keep the gears running smoothly, through all types of weather conditions.

Price: $1,050
