    2009 Teocali Super Build

    This is a build that started due to a frame crack on my 2006 Mongoose Teocali Super.

    That story is here: 06 teocali frame crack

    Some parts are new, others will be swapped from the old frame. Here are the pics.

    The old bike. She was a good bike.


    The New Frame. 2009 model super


    The new parts



    Everything else will come off the old frame. I have already started the build. There are a few annoying things I have run into. One hurdle was that hardly any hardware came with the new frame. Performance Bike helped me out with this and they got me the rear shock bushings and bottom bracket cable guide.

    Another hurdle was that there were not enough ferrules that came with the Jagwire cable set so I had to order some. The catch is that the matching ferrules only come in bottles of 50 if you order on-line. The cable set comes with 3 endcap ferrules. 3 is what is listed on the package, but I need 4 to complete my project. 2 for each derailleur.

    I had a mishap with my 20mm maxle on the old bike. Somehow that got frozen on and I had to take a rubber mallet to it to get it off. But even with slight tapping from the rubber mallet, the maxle body gave up the ghost and I had to order another one. At least it came off without damaging the fork lower. I won't go into how it got that way, let's just say that I would never twist that maxle on there that tight. That's why its a QR, to keep from having to tighten it that much when screwing it on.

    I will update this post with the finished build.

    Thanks, man. I like the strength and weight characteristics of those wheels. And aesthetically, they are just awesome.

    Please don't clamp frame tubes! Use the seatpost.

    Thanks! This is the cleanest it will ever be in it's life time.

    Can't wait to get it dirty! Took it for a test and tune and it felt pretty smooth, but things still need to loosen up.

    Yup,

    Clocked in at 31.7 on my home digital scale. Not an accurate scale, but in comparison, my 06 weighed in at 33 pounds on the same scale.

    Test and tune today. I don't know if it's the wheels or the tires but it felt like it was on rails and very smooth rolling. Still a little drag there but they say the I9s will loosen up with time. Climbed with very little effort as well. The frame felt much more solid and you could really feel the stiffness in the rear triangle compared to the 06.

    T&T day, unfortunately, soon turned into OTB day since I haven't been on a bike in 2 months and was tired and not concentrating on a little roller. Didn't lift the front end up in time and the front tire dug in at the bottom. Only damage was to the handle bars. Got a little scratched up.

    I would have saved on the i9 and put the money elsewhere.

    I guess I can live with 2.5 lbs heavier. Mine started out as a comp that weighed 35lbs, So i'm slowly shaving weight off with all the upgrades I have done.

    I love the look of the I9 BTW.

    Eh, If mine were 2.5lbs more heavier, it wouldn't bother me (I know, easy for me to say, I'm 2.5lbs lighter). Thanks for the props.
