The Boston brings back the basics as the first single speed folding bike with standard 700c wheels. The flip-flop hub allows the rear wheel to operate as either a free-wheel or fixed-gear setup with both cogs included.

The Boston is quick and lightweight for the rider who wants simplicity and excellent performance. The patented folding system converts this bike from full-size to trunk-size in less than 20 seconds.

Why Montague?

We set out to create the highest performance folding bikes in the world. All Montague bikes use full-size wheels, standard components, and a folding design that doesn’t break any of the frame’s tubing. Our focus has always been on perfecting ride quality, handling, and comfort.

Montague Boston Handlebars

Lightweight

The simplicity of the Boston makes it the lightest bike in Montague’s line. Easier for storage, faster for riding.

“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

“Usually when you’re talking about a folding bike there’s plenty to talk about on the subject of how the fold affects the ride, but not here. I wouldn’t advocate riding blindfolded but were you to try it you’d be hard pressed to tell this was a folder, there’s nothing to give it away.

If you struggle to find space for a full-size bike and you don’t want to sacrifice ride quality, the Boston is a good quality bike with a full-sized feel and a reduced footprint.”

    This is a well-designed, well-made bike that is perfect for city riding.

  2. 5 out of 5

    So far it’s great. Like the single speed flip to fixed gear rear wheel. Very light bike! It is simple and looks great. The flat black color looks rad. I don’t fold it unless I’m cleaning up and don’t want it in my living room.

    I’ve had the Boston for about a year now, and I love it. It folds and fits in my closet, which works well for me here in NYC. You can’t leave a bike locked on the street – it will get stolen, or (like my last bike) vandalized. They took my seat and wheels! So the Boston sits safely in my closet. Gotta love that!

    I’ve owned several folding bikes. I don’t even want to say how many. Having a bike compatible with all cars and any other mode of travel changed me. Suddenly I had a bike with me everywhere I went, and you can’t argue with that. So I continued.
    The buzz about these bikes is the ride. Everyone knows a Montague rides extremely well. I need to rave about how well they fold, particularly Montague road bikes.

    The Boston is the fastest folding bike I’ve ever had. On the specs they say 20 seconds, but they are being modest. I would put it at under 5. No Dahon can do that. Maybe under 7 seconds to unfold. I hear people wondering if the front wheel coming off in order to fold is a hassle, compared to Dahons where the front wheel stays on. That’s actually a good thing. Carrying full size bike with two 700c wheels under one arm is much more bulky than it might seem. Contrast that to being slightly more counter balanced with the front wheel under the opposite arm. It’s a cinch. You may want the front wheel to come off anyways, so you can place it somewhere else in a vehicle to save space. The alternative involves monkeying around with the handlebars on a bike like a Dahon — every time you fold the bike — to either remove or pivot them, and a loss of modularity of the front wheel.

    I never get crap about having a silly little bike with one of these. They are met with some curiosity which quickly transforms into respect, even in a hipster crowd. This is a very unique, exotic looking bike, that gets attention. I’ve ridden it hard, and it continues to amaze me. With such an great warranty, I’ll keep it forever, and never need a better bike.

    Bike is just as described. I was looking for something that I could keep in my small apartment and a friend suggested a folding bike. I’m psyched to have a full-size folding bike for commuting. My Boston is simple to take care of and very fast to fold.

  6. 5 out of 5

    Great engineering! Thank you for a full-size folding bike that is effortless to operate!

  7. 4 out of 5

    Very pleased with the bike. Box was banged up when arrived but inside packaging was excellent so no damage to the bike. It’s great to be able to fold it, bring it right into the office and keep by my desk.

  8. 5 out of 5

    The Boston is just what I wanted for my commute, very high quality build. When I’m ready to purchase a new mountain bike I’ll definitely will consider a Montague folding bike for quality and convenience.

  9. 5 out of 5

    I had a Dahon Boardwalk that didn’t hold up to the NYC streets. So I swapped it out for a Boston. So now I ride a Boston in New York City! I like the new website – figured I give you a comment on it. Great bike. Blows away my old small wheel Dahon. Fits in my flat. A+!

  10. 5 out of 5

    I’m very happy with this bike. It is lightweight – so easy to carry to my apartment and office. For riding in the city the single speed is what I prefer and maintenance is a breeze.

  11. 5 out of 5

    This model was just what I was looking for. It is simple, well-made, and sturdy. San Francisco has some challenging hills– but I am as comfortable walking my bike up when I have to, as opposed to twiddling up in a low gear. Besides, it’s easy to incorporate public transportation in my journeys all over the Bay Area. The bike is easy to maintain and keep clean. It stores easily in my closet when not in use. I also appreciate the full-size wheels and size because I am tall.
