The Allston is the ultimate commuter bike. The 11 speed Shimano Alfine internal gear hub combined with a Gates carbon belt drive gives a virtually maintenance-free and silent drivetrain. Hydraulic disc brakes give superb stopping power, a RackStand offers cargo carrying capacity, and extra wide 38mm tires make it comfortable on even the roughest roads.

Gates Belt Drive
The Allston is equipped with a Gates Carbon Belt Drive. It requires no lubrication, is virtually silent, and is cleaner, lighter weight and longer lasting than a traditional chain. It also won’t stretch over time, maintaining its efficiency for its entire lifespan.
DirectConnect™ Folding system
New for 2016 is the DirectConnect folding system, which removes the quick release from the top tube, provides an easier folding experience and larger clamping surface between the two halves of the frame. A flip of the quick release lever and your bike folds to a compact size.
Shimano Alfine 11
The Allston is powered by a Shimano Alfine 11-speed internal gear hub. This provides a wide gear range for hills, keeps the salt and sand out of your gears, and makes derailleur adjustments a thing of the past.
RackStand is a luggage carrier, mudguard, kickstand, and work stand all in one. A quick release allows it to rotate under the rear wheel on a specially designed axle mount. When in the lowered position it acts as a kickstand or workstand, makes folding your Montague easier, and allows the folded bike to be stored or displayed upright.
