New Stuff: Montague Allston
Montague, the leader in full-size folding bikes, has introduced the Allston, a new model packed with features that make it ideal for boaters, including a sealed internal gear hub, belt drive and patented cargo rack.
The Allston boasts components and accessories that specifically meet the needs of boaters. Frames, rims, and components are made from aluminum, while the spokes are stainless steel. The Allston forgoes a traditional chain for a rustproof carbon belt drive. It also features a sealed, 11-speed internal gear hub, giving the bike a virtually maintenance-free drivetrain that won’t corrode and requires no lubrication.
Extra-wide 38 mm tires make the Allston especially well suited for the often unpaved roads surrounding marinas and boatyards, or for exploring nature trails near the water. The bike also comes equipped with Montague’s new, award-winning RackStand. This specially designed rear rack serves as a luggage carrier, mudguard, kickstand, and work stand all in one. It even assists in folding and allows the bike to rest upright when folded. It’s perfect for transporting goods from a trip to town, and makes storing the bike on a boat even easier.
The Montague Allston folds in under 20 seconds and incorporates the latest technologies to offer unprecedented performance and portability.
