Montague CX has a crummy parts package, that will have to be replaced if you ride it allot. You can often find Montague's on ebay/CL. Obviously a 26" will not fold nearly as compact as a 20".

If you are planning to pack the bike for airplane travel, by the way, 26" wheels will generally not cut it. The only exception I know of is the Airnimal, which is way out of your price range.
You might be able to find an old steel touring bike for $500 or so, and spend another $500 on S&S couplers, and another $200ish on a case....

Under $1000? That is a tough order. Bacc's suggestion is probably your best bet.
