Montague’s Eurobike Award Winning RackStand™ Available Through QBP
CAMBRIDGE, MA – June 1, 2017 – Montague Bikes has announced the award winning RackStand is now available for aftermarket sales through Quality Bicycle Products. RackStand’s revolutionary design allows the rear bike rack to function on any bicycle as a luggage carrier, mudguard, kickstand, and work stand all in one. It can be fitted with panniers like a traditional rear rack, while a quick release allows it to rotate under the rear wheel on an axle mount. It is also equipped with an integrated fender and includes a matching front fender.
Montague’s RackStand received a Eurobike Award, one of the leading international design awards in the bike industry given to new products that exhibit a high level of innovation, functionality, quality and sustainability. Since the win, RackStand has been offered on select Montague folding bikes. RackStand is compatible with 700c, 26″, or 27.5″ wheels, and can be fitted to standard quick release hubs.
“When we set out to design the RackStand, we wanted to create a product that could do it all,” said Jonathan Vandenberg, Montague’s product manager. “Cyclists have long had to purchase several accessories separately; racks, fenders, and kick stands, and they’ve struggled with making drivetrain adjustments without dedicated work stands. RackStand combines all of these into one versatile product that we’re excited to offer to all bike owners through QBP.”
When in the lowered position, RackStand not only serves as a kickstand to hold up the bike, but also raises the rear wheel off the ground and allows for easy adjustments to the derailleurs. It has additional advantages when used with a Montague bike as it assists in folding the frame and allows it to rest on the stand in the folded position. It is also available for OE specification.
“The RackStand often weighs less than the combination of separate rack, kickstand, and fender components.” said David Montague, President of Montague Bikes. “It can also offer a cost savings over these similar quality separate components. It’s been a very popular and sought after accessory for our line of bikes that fold. Building on this success, we are now making it available to all consumers who want this versatility on any bike.”
The RackStand’s M.S.R.P. is $120.00. Interested consumers should contact their local bike shop about ordering through QBP. In addition to RackStand, Montague offers 11 bike models that feature their patented folding frame design. The line includes six road and five mountain bikes ranging in price from $639.95 to $2,449.00.
