  1. 5 out of 5

    It’s a great multipurpose bike. Just what I wanted for off and on road riding!

  2. 5 out of 5

    Super bike! Minimal tuning right out of the box. Fits in my trunk so less likely to be stolen.

  3. 4 out of 5

    I wanted something I could take in my car to mountain bike with. The Paratrooper folds down really easily, and I can fit it no problem in the trunk. The ride is great. The shifting works well – from Shimano. Overall this is a solid bike, not top of the line, but I’ve upgraded a few things and it works perfectly for me

  4. 5 out of 5

    It gives me the ability to take it anywhere since I can fit it in my car trunk but it is an entry level mountain bike. I could see upgrading some components at some point. It has handled some rough riding really well and the frame is very sturdy. That surprised me for a folder. I definitely recommend it!

  5. 4 out of 5

    I like the standard size and the folding mechanism. It’s a great bike for my needs but wish it came with the RackStand.

  6. 5 out of 5

    Very stable mountain bike. Smooth shifting. The change to fold and unfold the bike is uncomplicated and fast. I would buy this bike again.

  7. 5 out of 5

    I’m thrilled with this mountain bike! It performs very well on the trails I ride but it also rides well on paved roads. That is because the tire tread is smooth enough to ride on paved roads but still knobby for better grip on dirt and gravel. It is totally worth the cost because it folds! And it is easy to do and fits in just about any car. Excellent quality.

  8. 5 out of 5

    This is such a unique bike! I’m very satisfied with my choice of the Express. The folding and unfolding process is outstanding in ease of use and convenience. If you’re looking for a solid mountain bike and could benefit by saving storage and travel space go for this!

  9. 4 out of 5

    I was torn between getting this bike and spending a lot more for the upgraded Paratrooper. I’ve had the Express for about 2 months and so far I’m quite happy. My main concerns were brakes (since other Montague bikes have disc brakes) and the fewer number of gears on this bike. The normal rim brakes on this bike have been good even in the rain so no complaints there. The 18 speeds is also more than enough for me as I found I rarely go through all of them. If I ride unpaved trails they’re pretty tame. I don’t ride intense mountains so this bike is fine for them. Good value.

  10. 5 out of 5

    I’m new to mountain biking but I wanted something that I could store in limited space. I had heard about Montague and knew that they were full-size bikes that folded. With questions about the right size I had a great call with customer service and ended up purchasing the 16″ Express. It is just perfect for me and I love the bright blue color.
