Folding bike at COSTCO!

Spotted this folding bike yesterday when I was at the COSTCO. This model looks like those old Hummer/Montague folding bikes of yesteryear. Price was $399.99 USD. Bike had 26” wheels and had an impressive looking air rear suspension. It is also equipped with disc brakes and front suspension. I noticed that the rear derailleur was “Altus”. Model of the bike was “Cam Rock”. The box said the company was “Kent Bicycles”, which are not known for providing quality bikes. COSTCO usually stands by their products so perhaps this is different.

Anyway, I got excited to see a folding bike at a well-known retailer like COSTCO.

I have a folding bike from Montague, and except for the full-size wheels, they don't look too similar to me - looks like the Costco bike has a hinge in the middle of it, which will really effect the ridability. The Montague doesn't cut any of the structural tubes - it folds by pivoting on the seat tube. Gives a much better ride, in my opinion.

That's NOT a montague. But it looks like a single tube... very similar profile.

Its a::
"E-Moto CamRock Folding Mountain Bike w dual shocks"

The hinge is not as desirable as Montague's folding system.

The bike you saw looks ok for a city cruzing bike.
