@@ Montague folding mountain bikes - pros and cons??
I am researching a 26" folding mountain bike for next season. Folding is a must - for the boat, for the van, etc.
Uses - around town, bike trails, backcountry roads, jeep tracks, etc. Nothing too exciting. Just looking for a jeep with 21 gears that I can go off exploring with, then fold up and pack away when done.
Currently the Dahon Matrix and Montague Paratrooper are under consideration. Have I missed something else? Want to keep under $1000.
Having enjoyed the YouTube MB videos, I see that a folder might just do that in the more "energetic" portions of the sport - which I will leave to those under 30. I am thinking that the Montague probably has a more robust frame. It doesn't so much fold as pivot.
Now I am cross-checking to see what suggestions might come up from different viewpoints.
