    I own a bike like this. It's made by Montague ( Harry Montague invented the first full size folding bike. His son David (an MIT graduate Aerospace Engineer), joined his father in June of 1987 to form a partnership for the design and manufacture of the most innovative folding bicycles in the world. Their sturdy foldable mountain bikes were selected for use by the U.S. Army paratroopers no less! I figured if paratroopers use them, then I shouldn't have any problems with it. And, in the 2 years I've had it, I haven't. It's lightweight and durable and collapses in less than 20 seconds to fit in the back of my (compact) car's trunk with lots of room to spare. It takes up about the same space as a collapsible wheel chair. The company also sells hybrid and commuter bikes. They always use only the best available parts that can be found at most bike stores, so there is no need to worry about your local bikeshop being able to affect repairs or maintenance as you would with some exotic brand name foldable bikes. I use it all the time. I love the affordability, the durability, and features of my Montague X50 folding mountain bike. A folding bike is great for commuters who don't have a pick-up truck or a bulky bike rack. It is also a great bike alternative for apartment dwellers who don't have a lot of space to store their bike as it folds up so neatly compact. This bike is also great if you work in the city and can store your bike inside your worksite as a crime deterrent for bike thieves... it sure beats using a lock! You would do well to check out their website.
    Price Payed: $579.00 Recommended? Yes Pros: Collapses and stores in less than a minute. Sturdy and dependable mountain bike. Cons: Had to replace a rear brake cable after 2 years. Likely because of folding and refolding. It is a relativly inexpensive repair though. Synopsis: Quality, dependability, conveinence for the price.
