    Hi!
    This is my first post.
    I just got this bike off ebay (germany) for 225€. It seems to be pretty identical to the mongoose dolomite, but it has an alloy frame, stem, handlebar, seatpost and crank! The front and rear hub and headset bearings were too tight. Fork is a little bent. Weld looks solid. I will keep you updated, as soon as i put some miles on it. 3x9-speed is intended. May take some weeks, though.
    Awesome thread so far!
    Lots of great ideas and intructions.

    Sorry if this a noob question, but is a cassette part of the freewheel or are they two different systems? I tried to read up on the internet but I've come across conflicting info.

    I just bought a megarange for my Malus but haven't installed it yet. I'm considering returning it and going the 8 speed 11-32 route instead.

    The Dolomite, Hitch and Malus use a freewheel style and not a cassette style.

    Cassette and Freewheel are completely different systems
    and they are not interchangeable
    freewheels do not come in 11-32. the 11tooth high gear is simply too small to physically fit on a freewheel. 15 is the usual limit on these.
    Additionally they are Usually only 7 speed, a few are 8 but these are unusual and may not fit.

    Cassettes are definitely better, both for durability and gear options.
    But since the systems are integrated into the wheel hub, upgrading is extremely costly.

    Hey guys! I just owed my first bike/dolomite. Im currently in the process of painting the bike to my like and comfort. Im in a tight spot now trying to choose a different handle bar and seating for the bike. I had me mind to have a hydraulic seat pole for a smoother ride even though the tires will issues that sort of help but I'm looking to advance the bike to my liking. I will upload photos one day to shout you all I'm getting my hands into.

    I got a Kalloy one off ebay for $18. It worked OK, and was better than some I've used. Just came across this earlier today when looking for my kid's bike. Cheap $10 gamble. If anybody gets one, post how it is.

    I'd recommend buying a cheap stem and upgrading to 31.8mm handlebars. I waited for a sale on Nashbar and bought these:

    Nashbar Black Ops Flat Mountain Handlebar

    and used this cheap but durable stem:
    Mountain Bicycle Road Bike Handlebar Stem Aluminum Alloy 1 1/8" 31.8mm Black | eBay
