Summer Vacations and Folding Bikes
Cambridge, MA – March 2012 – With summer just around the corner, it’s getting to be the time when people start planning their vacations. Whether a month-long tour around Europe or a quick weekend getaway, there’s no better way to experience a new place (or an old one) than by bicycle. It’s a great way to enjoy local culture, take in the scenery, and discover delicious restaurants and unique shops.
Typically, bringing a bike along on vacation means negotiating an awkward rack on the car and leaving the bike outside overnight, where it is vulnerable to theft. But now, thanks to Montague’s full-size bikes that fold, travelling with a bicycle has never been easier.
For the past 25 years, Montague Corporation, a Cambridge, MA based bicycle company, has been designing full-size bikes that fold, in less than 20 seconds, to a compact 36”x28”x12”. Thanks to Montague’s patented folding technology, their bikes fold without compromising the structural integrity of the frame, which means they ride and handle just like non-folding bikes.
“On bike paths, around town, and up and down hills, it proved to be a snappy and responsive ride” says Matt Allyn, Online Editor for Bicycling Magazine. “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.”
Because of this combination of performance and portability, Montague bikes are ideal for a vacation. Not only are they easy to travel with, whether on planes*, trains, or automobiles, but they also fold for easy storage next to the luggage rack in the hotel room closet.
Montague bikes have full-size wheels and are made with industry standard parts, so they can be taken to almost any shop for service; they are also compatible with many common accessories, such as baskets, rear racks, and trailers. The bikes come in a variety of sizes, designed to fit riders from 4’8” to 6’4”.
With ten different models to choose from, everyone can find a Montague bike to suit their riding style and budget. Montague bikes start at an MSRP of $649.
