I bought this direct from a dealer for $400, and it was worth it. The components were crap though. I've put about 400 miles on it in the last two years. On the first day of riding I broke one gear, but they sent me a whole new back wheel super fast. Overall I have replaced the crankset and stem. I also added a suspension seatpost and their folding pedals. Over all I am very happy with the frame, but the components were not so good. If you can score a frame go for it. However, $700 for this is a tad high. Though I can fit it in my del sol's trunk and still have room for stuff is amazing. I'm also dissapointed in how much tuning has been required. It seemes to have issues shifting with each ride. Most shops have never seen one, so its hard to get good service. Be sure to find the local shop/service dealer in your area. Don't bother with the bag, but snag the folding pedals.

I purchased my Paratrooper a year ago (May 2009) as I wanted a full size folding bike that I could not only ride anywhere, but take anywhere. I've put well over 1,000 miles on it with no significant problems. I've ridden on pavement, double wide track and recently put it to the test on a fairly tough single track trail at Kettle Moraine WI. I'm 6'1" and weigh 220 lbs and the bike handles everytyhing I throw at it. The frame is bulletproof, the components are good (not great but everything I'd expect at this price point)and aftermarket parts are no problem. I've upgraded my handle bars (40mm rise Carbon Fiber) and clipless pedals. My local bike shop has no issues at all working on the bike.

Two recommendations: If you use it mainly as a commuter, purchase street tires for a much smoother and faster ride on pavement. The knobby's it comes with are for offroad.

Be careful ordering aftermarket parts as Montague changes their specs without notice. I checked the web site when I ordered my replacement bars and the spec was stated at 31.8mm dia. As it turns out, that is the current spec.. since mine was a year old, I had 25.4mm bars. My only choice was to either buy a new stem so the new bard would fit or exchange the bars.

If you are a serious mountain biker, this is the biker for you...Won't break not matter how hard you ride it...I have been in the rockies, in cali, and now in europe, plus the fact it folds, thats a space saver, this has many miles, it is just as good as the day I got it...great investment!!!

Bought this to get around on a base in Afghanistan. No paved roads, lots of ruts, rocks, gravel, mud, and dirt. The package when it arrived looked pretty bad and I was worried that the bike would be broken or ruined. Not a chance. Took off the packaging materials, unfolded the bike, and put on the front tire. Ready to ride. All the gears worked flawlessly. It is a very sturdy bike. It is quite believable that the frame can carry five hundred pounds, although one wonders it the tires would carry such a load. So far it has sat outside in dust storms, thunderstorms, and been ridden in the mud, rain, dry powdery dirt through ruts, bumps, large rocks and gravel and aside from wiping it off once or twice has had no maintenance and worked flawlessly. The only thing I wish is that the handle bar stem was adjustable in height. Have ordered the adjustable stem for it. The local Army guys lust after it since it is olive drab and looks macho military.

I'm not a hardcore cyclist but I like to ride to work sometimes and do some single track mountain biking when the weather's right. I saw a fellow camper with this bike in Yosemite a few years ago and tried it out. I really liked the feel of it as a full frame mountain bike -- and was sold with the idea of it folding up to fit in the back of my rather compact car.

When I finally purchased it I replaced my old Mongoose Sycamore. I thought I would sacrifice something by getting this folder, but after getting used to the odd (but good!) appearance, and learning to trust the mono-boom design, it really proved itself. For trails I use the stock knobby tires it came with and for the commute, I use a set of Serfas Drifter City/Hybrid Wire Bead Bicycle Tire (AWESOME). Have not had a flat yet in the nearly two years I've had it.

In all a 5 star -- really no other comparable alternative out there.

Ordering a bike online.....Of course I did read a lot of reviews to make sure this bike was worth it.1st you need to make sure which frame size you require. You should surf online for size information.

PROS : - it folds easily, making it easy to carry and store. It is great because you can put it in your car or in your office.
- it weights about 30lbs( I found it to be lighter than my other mountain bike, a Giant Rainier)
- the bike is very sturdy

CONS : the handlebar is kind of low, making for an akward position while on the bike. The weight is too focused on the front of the bike, meaning the velocity is reduced because there is too much weight put on the suspension. I did not find a way to set the handlebar higher.

This is a great bike and it's not heavy at all. Some people complained the bike needs to be customized, but what were you expecting? You have to adjust the break handles so they are at the right angle with your fingers, you have to tigher a few nuts , put oil on the chain and make sure you got the proper air pressure in the tires. Nothing major. It is basic mechanics and anybody could do it. You would have to do the exact same things with a bike purchased from a store. So far my only complain is the handlebar height.

UPDATE : I bought a stem raiser via Amazon and installed it. The handlebar is now higher, making for a more comfortable and safer ride. It took me 5 minutes to install and it cost about 20$. There is no problem with the cables being too short unlike other users have commented. I'm quite happy with the bike. Montague offers a stem raiser on Amazon, but that's not the one I got. I'll be posting pictures shortly.
