Fixed Folder

Montague introduces the Boston, their first 700c folding bike. Montague is better known for their military folding bikes and while I can't stand anything they make, this may be of some interest to somebody. The bike is scheduled to be released in January so there ya go.

eh, theres definitely days when i feel that way but then again, there are some good guys mixed in there too. i remember when guys who rode fixed were just a small genre of crazy cyclists, usually well above average skills, and it wasnt really a subculture thing run by art school students who would get their asses owned in any other circles. its opened cycling to a lot of people who may not get it otherwise and more cyclists are always good for all of us. unless theyre FGFS idiots >: )

This bike looks pretty awesome. I like the sleek black look. At least they're up with the times, the fixie craze doesn't seem to be slowing down anyway.

actually the thing i dont like isnt because its fixed, i just dont like the way it folds. My buddy had the mtn bike version of it and i was not impressed.

You just don't know what you are talking about. I built up my single speed Montague several years ago now and it is as stiff as my Seven and almost as light. And, it fits in my car trunk so I don't have a storage problem. Sure it came with some crap components, but the frame is awsome. I'd suggest you don't bother writing a blog if you don't know anything about what you are writing about. Plenty of sanitation engineering jobs out there for people who don't sh#t.

Anom, thanks for not posting your name to save your family the embarrassment of what comes out of your mouth. For one, why would you compare it to a Seven? Different type bike, different price range, different use, and i've never heard Seven used as the yardstick by which stiffness was measured. Are you talking lateral stiffness, vertical stiffness? Just because you've apparently ridden one decent bike in your life all of a sudden means you know shit i guess? I ride bikes to ride them, not to store them you stupid fuck. Ha, and you admit it comes with crap components...that's because you cant polish a turd idiot and why waste components on it. Just because it hasn't broken you assume its awesome. You seem to be very up on the sanitation jobs situation and apparently you like riding a piece of shit so maybe you should look into that job instead of me.
