Montague FIT Full Size Folding Bike Review

The bike is top in the segment, and due to its patented fit design and folding technique, it is the strongest montague folding bike ever made. The carbon fork of the bike is made for tough roads and shocks. When we look at the price, it is 1245 dollars, expensive for rookies, but every part of this bike is worth every penny. The solid aluminum frame supports the parts effectively, and make the bike weigh only 26.5 lbs. the color choices that are available in the market are hunter green and pure black.

When it is said that this is the strongest folding bike, it is true. The frame is fully aluminum having their FIT design. The bike has no middle hinge, which makes it stronger. Carbon fiber fork has better response and steering. It can absorb a good amount of shock. When folded the size of the bike becomes 36″ x 28″ x 12″. While folding, the bike separates into two pieces and is the only flaw I have ever notice in the bike.

Coming to the gears, it is integrated with 30 speeds Shimano Tiagra with the optical display. The specs you get are the flagship of the brand. While riding the bike, if gears are changed while accelerating and it is found that they’re very smooth, like cutting butter with a hot knife. The bike picks up speed in no time, and you won’t even feel any discomfort in doing that. Wheels are of Kenda Kontender Lite having 700c x 23mm slick. They’re light, strong and comfy. Their traction is pretty good, despite the fact that they’re thin.

Saddle is very comfortable, and it doesn’t hurt you after a while. It has Double Density Performance, with “Center Gap” Comfort Technology that makes sure that you enjoy every meter of the ride. The brakes are also effective enough to stop it in less time, no matter at which speed you’re riding.

Folding would take only 20 seconds, but for that, you have to remove the front wheel. The folding compresses the bicycle way much than any other in the segment. You can easily carry it along yourself on public transportation.

The bike is best in the segment, having all the high-end features, from gears to frame, from fork to saddle. The price is a bit high, but if you’re willing to invest that kind of money, it is a guarantee that you will get a bicycle that is never going to leave you in tough situations. It has low maintenance and is extremely durable. This bike is suggested for regular riders, for those who want to go work on it, the ones who roam around the city. It has got everything you need.

PROS:
  • Adult size bike
  • Lightweight only weighs 26.5 lbs.
  • 30 speed Shimano gears
  • Unique FT frame and folding technique
  • Strong frame
  • Smooth ride and comfy saddle

CONS:
  • Separates into two pieces while folding

Montague Navigator Full Size Folding Bike Review

The bike is designed for adults and has 27 speeds to make the riding experience smooth. The folding system of the bike is very unique, and it is what makes them the strongest in the segment. The frame of the bike is very strong and has two connecting rods. These rods provide extra support and make the cycle rigid on the rough roads. The available color option is blue and black.  Being a strong bike, it only weighs 27 pounds. Fenders and rack are included in the packaging.

Detailed Review

The whole metal frame is made up of aluminum (Custom drawn 7005 Series Aluminum with FIT System), which means it is light but strong. The middle hinge is absent, which gives you the full feel of an adult bike. The price range of this bike makes it a great deal. There are some bikes which are much lower in the wheel size but weigh the same. If we take into consideration the price, then you should definitely go for this.

Riding this bike is a real comfort. With such rigid support, you’re going to love the handling and pedaling. 27 speeds gear are of Shimano Sora, 9-Speed rear, and 3-speed front. While riding this thing, it was found that the gears shift effortlessly. We mostly see that with an increase in gears, it is really difficult to shift frequently, but not with this bike. You can ride this thing for a good interval, because the saddle is very comfortable, having center gap comfort technology.

When it comes to breaks, it is integrated with Caliper side pull type, an alloy made. The thing works like charm. When tested the brakes on different speeds, and it stopped almost at the same time. As far as breaks are concerned, they deliver pure performance.

The bike hardly has any maintenance than normal greasing and oiling. The parts are very strong and the gears are smooth. Folding this bike is very easy, a normal kid can do it. This full-size bike compresses a lot when folded. The size reduction ratio is great. The front wheel can be removed for folding, so there is some extra effort, but worth it

When you ride this thing, the tires are sleek, so you get acceleration without even trying hard. The gears help you to reach a speed at no time. This is more like a racing bike, which you can use it for day to day purpose. You can easily carry it along on public transport. It does okay on rough roads, but on city roads, it has no competition. The price tag makes it a great deal.

This bike is recommended to people who want to go to their work on it regularly, because it is durable and strong.

PROS:
  • Strong metal frame (FIT frame)
  • Adult size bike
  • 3×9 speed gears by Shimano
  • Racks and fenders included
  • Sleek tires, good for city use
  • Good price

CONS:
  • Bike separates into two pieces when you fold it
