Montague MT-1000 Bi-Frame Folder

This bike was donated to our all-volunteer charity. We will sell it to help pay our expenses. Again this year we will hit the 2500+ bikes given away to the needy. Check out our web site rcommunitybikes.net.

We recently received this Montague MT-1000 folding bike. Montague was kind enough to send us the latch mechanism. Thanks Montague! It's an early model The wheels may not be original since the fork has a 90mm wheel in 100mm dropouts. We have no idea of value. I'm posting here and in the "What's it worth?" section. Any help with evaluation would be appreciated.

used bikes sell quickly if not overpriced , but wealthy areas that price will be higher than remote low income towns
I'll guess $200 .. general well used MTB price ..

Bhkyte is correct, it is a very underrated bike, very capable and robust but heavy. The weight is probably a factor of the components. Your bike has been retrofitted with V brakes which will be a big improvement on the Dia-compe cantilever brakes it had originally. The groupset is ok, the crank is SR Sake ovaltech which is original and has some value to people who like oval chainrings. I can not give you an idea of value on the US market because I an in the UK. I own a Rudge Bi-frame which is exactly the same bike but marketed in the UK under the Rudge brand. I paid 50, they often sell for between 50 and 80 here in the UK. I have owned other full size folding bikes but the Montague/Rudge has been the best so far and the most compact when folded.
