5.0 out of 5 stars perfect for commute/casual riding, November 30, 2009
This review is from: Montague Paratrooper Mountain Folding Bike 2015, Matte Cammy Green
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.

B. Prepper - question for you. I just bought this bike and I'm using 90% as a commuter bike. I'd like to shave off some pounds and I'm thinking replacing the stock wheels with your suggestion might do the trick. Any idea how much weight you save with the tires? Did you purchase the 1.5" or 2"? Thanks.
