ReviewsMontague X50 Folding Mountain Bike - 20" 1 1Jack-of-all-trades but master of none... ...if you accept this bike for what it is, it will serve you very well indeed but if you buy it in the hope of having a high-end mountain bike that will fold into a suitcase, you will be sadly disappointed on both counts. With the possible exception of the front suspension, the spec-sheet reads like an entry-level bike of 15 years ago (I didn't realise they even made 18-speed bikes any more!), and the 26" wheels mean that it is still quite a sizeable beast, even when folded ...so it really does pose the question "why bother?" The answer is very much the trump card this bike keeps hidden - notice that none of the beams have been cut through, as you will see in most other folding bikes, so none of the structural integrity has been sacrificed to make it fold. That seemingly small detail means that this bike has a very rugged frame which still folds small enough to fit into the boot of a car. This is a bike that can be taken anywhere and, on arrival, will go over more-or-less any terrain you care to throw at it. Hardcore mountain bikers should look elsewhere but if you just want to get from A to B, regardless of the terrain in between, this bike will do it with aplomb and still fold away quickly and easily at the end of it. The folding mechanism itself is OK - others are quicker, easier and fold smaller but this one is for full sized wheels and is significantly more robust. My only minor gripe is that you have to ensure the correct front wheel alignment through the brake pads every time you get it out (because the front wheel needs to come off when you fold). A quick-release makes the job much easier and I've got the knack now, so it only takes a matter of seconds, but I do still find it a little annoying. No such issues when folding it away though. On the plus side, I have been a little rushed when unfolding occasionally and forgotten to secure the quick release on the frame - I never even noticed the oversight until I got to my destination. It's not in any way advisable to do so, but I find it reassuring that the design of the mechanism makes allowance for such stupidity without any ill-effect. I should point out that, from the off, I have kitted my bike out for commuting so I have been riding on semi-slick kevlar-lined tyres rather than the factory fitted knobbly ones and I've added a pannier rack, which just adds to its versatility. My commute involves driving to the edge of the city where I work and cycling into the centre, along an often poorly maintained canal towpath (much nicer than the jammed up main roads); as such I very much appreciate the charms of this bike - the rugged construction deals with the often lumpy ground, the wide tyres have no problem with grip, even when riding on loose gravel (on semi-slick tyres to boot) and the fact that I can fit it into my car boot makes it perfect for my needs. In short I have one bike that goes anywhere, carries loads (with the pannier rack) and fits into my car boot - a true jack-of all-trades that does everything well, but a bit too compromised to truly master any single aspect of what you might want a bike for... Finally a word about Halfords: the click & collect service was spot-on and the customer service was excellent; my only minor gripe was that the bike build gave the impression of being rather rushed - the extra fittings I ordered (lights etc.) were 'attached' rather than 'thoughtfully placed', but all-in-all I was happy with the service. 04 July 20151-1 of 1
