Montague folding tandem, 700$:

Quote:
Ever seen one of these under $1200? This one is, because I'm moving soon and it has to go. It's the classic Montague three-point folding tandem bike: in a matter of minutes, your two-person tandem folds into something that could fit in a suitcase. The picture is of the bike folded up. It's hardly been ridden and is in excellent condition.

Hello Folding Bikes Sub! This is my first post in this sub, I usually lurk in Commuting and SSFG.

Not a 'best of' find, just a thought:
Single Speed Folding Bike - One size fits most

My wife and I are avid commuters and occasional recreational riders. We are looking at adding a used folder to our stable for those off-hand times when a one-way trip or compound transit-cycle trip is required. For instance, my wife often has to drive for work out of town and we meet up after in the city for a dinner or show. I would love a folder to ride to work and throw in the trunk. Other times, one or the other of us must rent a car for out of town work. The rental car place we use is only 1.5mi away from our house and can be a pain via public transit. Perfect for a quick folder trip. Other times, I might be headed to a professional event where it makes sense to use public transit for most of the trip but cycle to and from the train. In any case, lots of times we could use a folder! I expect that between the wife and I we would put about 200 to 300 miles per year on the folder and thus don't need much.

I will be headed to Madison for work in the coming days and have searched their CL for used folders. I have found the one above listed at $160. A brand new model is listed at $300 so this seems a little high given the condition. I did some research on the weight limit and it is OK. SS is no problem. I can do a bit of work on a bike myself.

All things considered, any input from this sub forum would be appreciated, including offering price.

Thanks!

I was reading your blub and am shopping for a bike. I was wondering why you don't recommend the Montague CX?

Apologies to all that did not see this on Anchorage Craigslist for $450 . My brother was close and snapped this up for me:
