I purchased a Paratrooper Highline 20" due to its outstanding frame design allowing easy transport in any car, especially those like mine with no provision for roof racks or tow balls. The frame is beautifully fabricated with flawless welds and a high quality paint finish. Folding and unfolding is a simple exercise.
The front forks, wheels and brakes are quality items and perform very well. However, if Montague is open to suggestions, I would suggest wider handlebars, a 1x11 drivetrain and alternative seat options would be welcome upgrades. I upgraded mine in such a manner and it now feels like an extension of me, with superior control (bars), nicely stacked gear ratios (drivetrain) and more comfort for longer rides (seat). With these upgrades it would be a 5 star review.
All prices are in AUD.
