Montague folding bikes now available in UK
Unlike many other folders out there, Montague’s bikes have full-size wheels and the range caters for mountain bikers as well as commuters. They’re now available to buy in the UK via 2×2 Worldwide.
Starting at £499.99 the Urban has seven-speed SRAM X-3 gearing and a tool-free adjustable stem. If you’ve ever wanted a fixed wheel folder then the Boston should fit the bill with a flip-flop hub and puncture resistant tyres for £599.99.
Topping the road range is the £999.99 Fit with 700c wheels, 27-speed Shimano Tiagra gearing and a claimed folding time of 20 seconds with no tools required.
The entry-level Swiss Bike X50 mountain bike from Montague costs £459.99 and is touted as the right tool for a rugged commute or light trail use with 18-speed gearing and an 80mm-travel SRSuntour XCT V2 suspension fork.
Paratrooper open: 2x2
Montague’s Paratrooper was developed for use by the US military, to be a Tactical Electric No Signature (TENS) Mountain Bike – essentially a piece of kit that could fit through a plane door, provide transport for a soldier, and that the enemy couldn’t detect easily.
Spec highlights include mechanical disk brakes and a 80mm-travel Suntour fork. You can drop out of planes, or ride into the urban battle, on this olive green machine for £659.99.
X90 folded: 2x2
At the top-end of the mountain bike range is the Swissbike X90 which has a RockShox Recon fork, Truvativ Stylo crankset, SRAM X0 shifting and WTB Dual Duty wheelset. High-performance folding at this level will set you back £1,999.99.
