Completely custom built Montague Paratrooper. Started with a bare frame and copied the build kit from Paratrooper Elite with a few exceptions - I added better brakes by using the Magura MT-5 4-piston hydraulic brakes with 180mm rotor on front and 160mm on rear, and I used an upgraded Rock Shox Reba fork with larger/stronger tubes that the Elite uses. I also built the rear wheel with 36 spokes for greater load carrying capacity than the Elite's 32 spoke rear wheel. Otherwise it is the same build kit with full Shimano XT 3x10. Tires on the bike currently are Continental Trail King 2.4", which on a 26" rim yields a tire size of 27.25", very close to the 27.5" on the Elite but the advantage is that you have 2.4" tires rather than the 2.1" on the Elite.I also added a set of Ergon GP3 grips in BioKork and a Brooks Cambium C17 saddle with custom painted rivets to match the color of the bike.

This bike was built as a concept/display bike for a Montague authorized dealer. The dealer wants to build a new concept bike for this year so this bike is looking for a new home.Bike is shown with $720 of brand new never used accessories for a totally unique look, not to mention awesome functionality, but those are NOT included in the auction. Extras include a new and very hard to find Neoprene camo colored frame protection wrap ($60), a new Blackburn Outpost seat pack and dry bag ($130), new Blackburn Outpost top tube bag ($60), custom Camo covered water bottle, new Blackburn Outpost handlebar roll and dry bag ($100 ) with custom matching camo modification, two new fork mounted Blackburn Outpost cargo cages ($25 each) mounted to the fork lowers using a pair of King Cage universal mounts ($6 each) for each cage.
I can sell you the bike with all the accessories for $2400
This is truly a one of a kind item with all kinds of attention to detail.
There are no pedals included.
