1996 Fuji (Montague) Folding Bike

I repainted and updated the components on an old Fuji (Montague) folding bike from the late 1990s. Mine wasn't a Marlboro edition, but I think most of the ones around people got as a prize for smoking enough Marlboros. I like road bars and bar ends, so with these installed, the end product is a very versatile bike that can be a travel cyclocross/mountain/touring bike/road bike. It fits in a 26x26x10 box, so I have taken it with me to multiple destinations free (Miami, Bahamas, Salt Lake City, Moab, Washington DC, Burlington VT). Though I haven't traveled internationally, many international travelers like 26 inch bikes for the availability of parts, so it would be at home in that environment as well. Its a bit heavy given the dated folding mechanism and mix of mild steel/chromoly construction, but it gets the job done for me.
