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.

“This bike lives up to the hype. It features Montague’s patented folding system, and with a flip of the quick-release lever, it can fit into the trunk of your car or closet in 20 seconds.

Montague’s top-of-the-line folding bike, killing it in the convenience department and still ideal for race day, technical cross country, and fast single-track mountain rides.”

The Robb Report

“These aren’t the typical folding bikes with the circus wheels. These are bicycles made for athletes with standard size wheels and all the bells and whistles you could want that conveniently fold up and can be stored in your apartment or trunk of your car.

With an emphasis on performance,… Montague Bikes is revolutionizing the folding bicycle for all cyclists.”

    This bike rocks! I’ve had it for a few weeks now and just got back from a 3-day weekend riding through the Grand Tetons. The trip was amazing, and my Elite tackled everything I gave it. My buddies on their Specialized and Rocky Mountain bikes had nothing on me on the trails, and then when we got back to our cars, and to the hotel, I just left mine in the trunk, while they had to fart around with getting bikes off the racks late at night in the dark. All in all, a great feature to be able to fold my bike, and I can’t say enough about how great it rides!

    I don’t regret going for the top of the line model. I’ve owned several mountain bikes throughout my life and I’m pretty familiar with components and specs. The parts on this bike are awesome and puts it on par with other high end mountain bikes (hardtails).

    I got a tracking number the same day I ordered and I had it in 4 days. Unpacking was pretty easy and there wasn’t a lot of assembly. I had an initial question about the wheel quick release and when I called Montague they were helpful on the phone and promptly emailed me some information.

    It rides great out of the box but I made a few customizations. The seat post diameter is not the most common so I had trouble finding a suspension post that would fit. I ended up using a 27.2 suspension post with a Cane Creek shim to get it up to 30.0. That works fine. If Montague ever makes a full suspension folding bike I’ll probably be first in line!

    This bike opens the doors of opportunity. As a pilot I enjoy riding singletrack while on layovers. This bike allows me to pack it in the airplane’s baggage compartment and get it to the trailhead without the need of a bike rack. The Paratrooper Elite performs well in climbs and descends just as sweet wether it be on technical or flow trail descents!
