Montague Bikes was the brainchild of Harry Montague, a 6 foot 2 inch US architect who wanted something which was a better fit for his size than the usual small wheeled folding bikes. Along with his son he founded the bike company in 1988 in Boston, Massachusetts to design and sell folding bikes with larger wheel sizes. There’s a 700C range – the same sized wheels as a normal road bike – and a 26 inch wheeled range too, based on a design used by US paratroops.
