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.
