Montague Corporation’s Paratrooper First Impression

by Randy Policar

I’ve been using the Paratrooper from Montague Corporation to commute to and from work. I’m really impressed on how fun this bike is. With its unique frame, people always ask what kind of bike it was. I always get a kick out of saying it’s called the Paratrooper and showing off how the bike folds.

Patented Folding System

You do not need any tools to fold any of the Montague bikes. Just remove the front tire and activate the quick release on the frame.

The quick release on the frame comes with two safety mechanisms that you have to activate to fold the Paratrooper; the open / close lever, and the spring loaded knob. Simply switch the lever from close to open turn it a few times then press down.

Shifting from one gear to the next is very accurate. I haven’t had any issues or complaints with the shifter nor the derailleur.

Paying attention to detail could make or break the looks of a bike. Montague Corporation took care of it all. The over all looks of the bike is awesome! The feature that I liked most was the rims. I just love that silver and black combination.

The Paratrooper gave me a great first impression. I like how smooth the ride feels. I love how it handles. The bike feels solid. With the bike being so light, climbing hills is not a problem at all. It looks great. And most of all it’s a Paratrooper like I am. ;)

    Those are great shots. I didn’t realize that it has LX derailleurs. Those are really nice.

    hey now…better photos of the bike than the ones on the Montague website. Just ordered the MX today (too poor for the paratrooper)…cant wait!

  5. Thanks for the compliment on the pictures. I’m sure you’ll love the MX. Have FUN!
