Montague Bike Parts & Accessories
Montague is a U.S.-based manufacturer of folding bikes. The company currently produces two lines, city and mountain bikes, and sells a small number of components created for use with those bikes.
Co-founder Harry Montague began building sturdy, full-wheel-size folding bikes in the 70s, after discovering that a rider his size (over six feet tall) would overwhelm the small-wheeled folding models of the day. Over the next decade, Harry built and sold his custom folding bikes out of his garage, honing his designs. In 1987, he partnered with his son, David Montague, incorporating the company in 1988 and starting manufacture with the first model, the BiFrame. The next twenty years saw partnerships with Schwinn, auto manufacturers, and the U.S. military. In 2010 Montague produced an entirely new line of bikes, dubbed Pavement, with 700c wheels, replacing the 26-inch line of city bikes. Today Montague produces its Pavement bikes and several varieties of the Paratrooper, a mountain bike derived from Montague's models developed for military use.
The urban bike line is quite wide: models are available kitted out simply or extensively accessorized, with internal gearing or derailleurs, one or multiple chainrings, disc or rim brakes. The Paratrooper models vary in accessories, wheel size, and braking systems. The one thing in common across both lines is the ingenious folding frame, which keeps all tubes intact.
Montague bikes are available at shops throughout the U.S. and Canada, and delivered anywhere in Europe, North and South America, Asia and Australia via a globe-spanning network of distributors. Stop by your local shop or Montague's website and check out their novel folding bikes today.
