Five must-have travel gadgets

Montague on Stuff.co.nz

Where most folding bicycles have small wheels and complex mechanisms, the Montague design is so simple and obvious, you wonder why no one has thought of it before.

What’s more, all the models have full-size 26-inch mountain bike wheels, so you don’t feel as if you’re riding on roller skates. The Montague’s frame swivels at the seat post after a quick-release lever is unlocked.

Pop off the front wheel, fold the rear stays around and it’s ready to go into a car boot. It comes with a carry bag. A sister brand called SwissBike, based on the same design, is also available. Next year, a single-speed model called Boston (pictured) will be released.
