With it’s 38mm, 1.5″ tires and 29″ wheels, the Allston is a great new addition to the Montague line. It fills the gap between their mountain and road bike models, giving us a true all-rounder. It’s capable on both paved roads and gravel-grinder trails. The Allston can be your ultimate, virtually no maintenance commuter, being equipped with an Alfine 11 speed internally geared hub and a silent Gates carbon belt drive.
New for 2016 are the improved direct connect folding mechanism that provides easier folding and larger, more secure, clamping surface, and the Montague Rackstand, a rear rack and fender that pivots out of the way to fold your bike and doubles as a bike stand. The front fender also folds down in place when the bike is folded.
