WANT: Montague Boston Singlespeed

August 21st, 2010 [print] Go to comments

This Montague Boston singlespeed belongs to a guy named Mark Scott, who decided he couldn’t leave his bike in stock form.  Normally, I wouldn’t give a folding bike a second thought, but Montague seems to know how to do it right, and this particular modified version looks good enough to use as a primary ride.

I may have to look into getting one for myself someday, for use as a travel bike (sure beats shipping it or paying $100 or more to take it on a plane).  Now that I know they can be modified to look pretty sweet, and they fall into a reasonable weight category (24lbs stock), it’s definitely on my list.  In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if I could get one under 20lbs.

More info on Mark’s bike can be found here, and Montague says the quick-release skewer can be replaced with a lower-profile bolt-on, for those of us who wouldn’t want that metal handle so close to our junk.

    The Boston is one of our more popular models, and Mark did a great job with his customization!

    Have you guys considered offering more road-oriented stem and handlebar combos for the Boston?
