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 a Folding Bike?

Folding bikes fit your lifestyle. Having the ability to fold your bike into a compact package in seconds allows you to store it easily in the home or office, and travel anywhere with your bike. It can fit in the car trunk, on the bus or train, and is perfect for your next trip.

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.


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

Montague Boston Handlebars


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.”

  1. Andy

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

  2. Phillip45

    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.

  3. Christine

    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!

  4. Bradley Baysinger

    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.

  5. Chris W

    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. Aidan

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

  7. Justin N

    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. SJL

    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. John O

    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. Elly

    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. Robert

    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.

  12. patlicarro (verified owner)

    I’m a truck driver and having a bike to explore whichever town I may be staying in is like a small vacation every day. It’s nice to have for fitness as well. I’d rather keep it in the truck so a folder is key. I was drawn to Montague because their design looks stronger than the other options and the full-size wheels roll easier. The Boston is very clean-looking and I love look of it with no down tube. The frame feels rock solid. The gearing is lower than your typical ‘fixie’ but that’s fine with me. It’s nice to know the frame is built with standard sizes for headset, bottom bracket etc so I can upgrade down the road. I’m pleased with the ride and build quality and the look of it.

  13. Moe

    Been meaning to leave a review for a while now. Absolutely love my Montague Boston, bought mine in 2014, did some traveling through South America and Europe, it’s got some battle scars, set up fixed. It’s a great design and very sturdy. May take a little bit to get used to if you’re used to riding a fixed steely, but the benefits are in its rideability and durability.

  14. Kimberly Tran

    God I love this bike. Montague got the geometry just right for city riding. The bike is responsive, but never twitchy. It’s perfect for getting in and out of traffic in Boston. And it’s super practical too as it’s allowed on all trains, even during rush hour, and even on the Green line. But all this wouldn’t matter if it wasn’t also just FUN to ride. The thing MOVES. It’s my all-time favorite bike and favorite ride, single-speed and all.

  15. Salvatore Denise

    I commute into Manhattan daily on Metro North and bike to work from Grand Central Terminal. The Boston has exceeded my expectations. No problem getting it on a rush hour train and what a joy to ride. A high quality bike – it is light, solid and responsive. Thanks Montague!

  16. Keith

    I’ve had this bike for three years, and I ride it 5 miles a day, all year long. It took me a while to decide to go to a bigger front gear, but I finally moved from the stock 42 or 44T up to a 50, and then to 54. Now I can easily keep up with Chicago city traffic and cruise easily at 20 mph, topping out around 25+ if I’m really cranking. The only problem I’ve had with this bike is the rear brake cable, where it folds at the body joint, it keeps kinking and making the rear brakes stick. I swapped out the cable and sleeve a few times and it would work fine for a few months, but I got tired of changing it out. Eventually I gave up and took off the rear brake completely. I upgraded the front brake pads to one of those combination compound sets and its more than enough stopping power. The folding system is rock solid, and rides like a real bike. I love it.

  17. Carl Bernsen

    I bought my Boston pre-used in the UK for a great price. I’d previously ridden an Airnimal Joey with 24 inch wheels and wanted an easier ride on road and gravel. I love this Boston! So light and elegant and I don’t look like I’m perched on a kid‘s bike with a weirdly tall seat post. I use it as a gravel/ travel bike; I’m happy walking up steep hills so the simplicity of a single speed is a win. Being able to ride out wherever and catch a bus if it gets too late or the weather turns bad is so versatile that I’m planning a long distance camping tour mixing cycling with buses and trains.

  18. William

    Going into the fifth year owning this bike. I bought this bike my freshman year of high school, and it has been my main source of transportation since. Used it everyday for school, to go to work, and now for college. Not a single part has broken down for all these years. I am so grateful for the build quality of this bike. Exceptional. Also this bike is very low maintenance. And the folding feature—it’s come in handy countless times, when I had to fit it in a car trunk. Quality, functional, and sleek design; I’ve gotten multiple compliments about it. Thank you Montague for creating such an awesome product. If this one breaks down, I know where to go to get my next bike. Thanks again.
