Paratrooper Bikes For Civilians
Flying beats driving any day, but getting from the airport into town once you’ve arrived isn’t always fun. The Paratrooper folding 24-speed mountain bike was designed for the military in conjunction with the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, but is now available for civilian use. The full-size, high- performance bike folds up with just one tug of the quick-release lever, good-to-go for the back of just about any airplane. The Paratrooper bicycle was created for, well, paratroopers, and isn’t likely to break a sweat for most general-aviation applications. Get all the details from Montague USA, leader of the pack for folding bikes. Call (617) 491-7200, or find them online at montagueusa.com.
