3.0 out of 5 stars Great idea., March 4, 2007
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'm getting this bike soon. Could you recommend/list what specific component upgrades you made? I'm interested in doing the same.

Can you still get this $400 price from your dealer? I'd be happy to pay you for your troubles if you can...

I would like to know what K. Eastley is asking. Can you still get this from the dealer?

Not necessarily. I purchased the bike a few years ago from Aafes for about the same price. I don't know why Montague has jacked all of their prices up now though.

I'm interested where you got this bike for $400. That price is very inexpensive for this bike.

Ben, he is probably not lying just because he isn't answering. He is probably like most people and doesn't go back periodically to read his own reviews to see if people are commenting on his comments.

Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night in a cold sweat wondering what someone might have posted in reply to something I've said up to 15 years ago.

In the last six years, what direction have the prices of ...well, everything, gone?

In 1974 I bought a brand new Suburu Coupe for $3,900, may I have another at the same price please?
