One of my friends, a very novice cyclist, was telling me today that he was thinking of buying a Montague folding mountain bike that he'd seen advertised in the Independent. I don't know which model but it was about £500. Call me sceptical, but I'd be very cautious about buying a bike from a newspaper. Do any of you have any better suggestions? He's looking for a bike he can take away in the car for weekends and likes the idea of being able to put it in the boot so that it's not on show. He's into walking so I'm guessing the idea of a mountain bike appeals to him more than a road bike. Thanks!
