    Montague Paratrooper conversion...

    My well worn Paratrooper finally hit the commuting scene after a bit of tinkering...







    The gearing is 44x18. It's got a carbon fork and some other fun bits to bring it from 29lbs to 21lbs. The GF picks me up from work a few times a week and I hate leaving the bike at work so the folding aspect really works out.

    I'm not generally a fan of Montague bikes (too big, too heavy) - but this one looks sweet! Clean lines, subtle...

    Why thank you! I think it's a solid improvement as well.

    Pretty sweet! The only thing I can think of that would be cooler is to add an IGH.

    Yeah I have...He did a good job with the hummer and put a TON more work and money into it than I did.
