Why Montague?

Boating Magazine reviewed the Montague Allston as the perfect bike to store on your boat.

No street bikes I’ve ridden offer an experience so smooth, yet solid. Even the bike shop employees drooled over it and lined up for a test drive through their parking lot.

 The brakes were the smoothest I’ve ever used on a bike. The frame folds easily and smoothly at the flick of another latch.”

Boating Magazine

“I’ve had mine for 2 months and absolutely love it!! The belt drive and internal gear hub make it so simple to use and smooth as silk. I added a RockShox Paragon suspension fork and I can go anywhere I want!

I can leave it folded in the back of my Jeep secure then go straight to the Greenspace!!! This bike is very well built with all top quality parts!!”

  1. 5 out of 5

    Just got it and unpacked it. Very nice first ride! So smooth, and solid. I love this bike. Nice finish, nice graphics. Very well made. The gates belt is smooth and the Shimano Alfine 11 shifts perfectly. Love the rackstand that acts as a rack and a kickstand. Great job Montague!

  2. 5 out of 5

    Sweet bike! Very happy with the purchase. Having the belt instead of a chain is really awesome, feels buttery smooth to ride.

  3. 4 out of 5

    I agree, sweet bike. Rides nice, love the belt and shimano internal gearing. I take it on my boat, and we explore islands in the Puget Sound by bike. Can’t beat it for fending off the elements. The “chain’ never rusts!

  4. 4 out of 5

    Had to wait for bike to be in stock but well worth it. We got 2 for our sailboat. Saw the review in Yachting magazine and loved the idea of a bike with full size wheels that could be stored easily. Very pleased with our purchase.

    I’ve had the Allston for couple of months now. It’s crazy how people are blown away when I fold it up – it does not look like it can do what it can do. Thanks Montague folks for making this bike. I first heard about it when I was over in Germany, but couldn’t find one there. Now in the states I got one – had to get my local dealer to order it, but I am happy that I did. Excellent bike!
