Montague's RackStand being distributed by QBP

Published June 12, 2017

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (BRAIN) — Quality Bicycle Products is now distributing Montague Bikes' RackStand, a rear rack that converts to a workstand or kickstand, and which also includes a mud guard. The RackStand was an award winner at last year's Eurobike.

The RackStand is offered on 11 models of Montague folding bikes. It is compatible with 700c, 26-inch, or 27.5-inch wheels, and can be fitted to standard quick release hubs.

"When we set out to design the RackStand, we wanted to create a product that could do it all," said Jonathan Vandenberg, Montague's product manager. "Cyclists have long had to purchase several accessories separately; racks, fenders, and kick stands, and they've struggled with making drivetrain adjustments without dedicated work stands. RackStand combines all of these into one versatile product that we're excited to offer to all bike owners through QBP."

The RackStand also is especially convenient when used with Montague's folding bikes because it makes it easier to fold the frame. The bike can rest on the stand in the folded position.

The RackStand is also available for OE specification, the company said.

"The RackStand often weighs less than the combination of separate rack, kickstand, and fender components." said David Montague, the president of Montague Bikes. "It can also offer a cost savings over these similar quality separate components. It's been a very popular and sought after accessory for our line of bikes that fold. Building on this success, we are now making it available to all consumers who want this versatility on any bike."

The RackStand's MSRP is $120. A matching front mud guard is included.
