The BionX system is very nice. Its 8lbs lighter than the lightest Crystalyte/Chinese style hub motor, uses quality battery chemistry, the controls, design, feel and performance are overall very good for an e-bike. Out of the e-bike conversion kits, this one stands out as being a good choice for a "cyclist", who wants a kit to augment his/her ride rather than encourage riding the throttle as if the bike was a moped. One downside of the BionX system, and something that wouldn't matter too much to a non-tinkerer is that the battery packs are proprietary.
I have no experience with the Montague bikes though, sorry.
