Anyone own this bike or have ridden it? anything good or bad to say about it? I am looking for a steel folding bike with 26 inch wheels and this is all i can seem to find. I noticed one person said it was noodly but thats the only comment i could find on the bike. Any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks!
also i am not worried about the components as i will likely replace them all but i am interested in how the frame itself can perform mostly on the road....
All that I remember about this bike is that it was very heavy and the hinge below the bottom bracket really reduced road clearance.
Doesn't Breezer, Ritchey and Dahon have full size steel 26 inch tire folding bikes using S&S couplers?
The Schwinn-Montague BiFrame weighs 32.5 pounds, and the chainring extends below seat tube/down tube junction, so the ground clearance is limited by the chainring clearance, not the frame clearance. Chainring clearance is 7 inches.

Breakaway frames using S&S couplers are great, but they all take a while to break down and put back together.

To each his own! It is still too heavy.
