The Boston brings back the basics as the first single speed folding bike with standard 700c wheels. The flip-flop hub allows the rear wheel to operate as either a free-wheel or fixed-gear setup with both cogs included.
The Boston is quick and lightweight for the rider who wants simplicity and excellent performance. The patented folding system converts this bike from full-size to trunk-size in less than 20 seconds.
Single Speed or Fixed
The BOSTON features a 42x16t single-speed drivetrain that centers around a flip-flop hub. It allows for freewheel and fixed gear riding.
Why a Folding Bike?
Folding bikes fit your lifestyle. Having the ability to fold your bike into a compact package in seconds allows you to store it easily in the home or office, and travel anywhere with your bike. It can fit in the car trunk, on the bus or train, and is perfect for your next trip.
We set out to create the highest performance folding bikes in the world. All Montague bikes use full-size wheels, standard components, and a folding design that doesn’t break any of the frame’s tubing. Our focus has always been on perfecting ride quality, handling, and comfort.
The simplicity of the Boston makes it the lightest bike in Montague’s line.
Easier for storage, faster for riding.
Single speeds have been the choice of working bike messengers for years due
to their durability and low maintenance.
Bicycling Magazine “Once I started riding the bike, I quickly understood that the Boston had more going for it than just storage economics. It’s fun, too. On bike paths, around town, and up and down hills, it proved to be a snappy and responsive ride. It’s a bike I’d ride, even if I wasn’t short on space.
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 (in addition to closet).”
