    Mongoose IBOC Comp ID

    Can anyone ID the exact year of this IBOC Comp? I believe it's early 90s.



    EDIT: Serial # M1J 13507

    I believe it's a 93, I have a 95 zero g. What kind of tires, Panaracer Smoke and Fire (I think)?

    They are Panaracer Smoke Lite's. For some reason, I had narrowed it down to either a 91 or 92, but I'm not sure exactly why. I think it was through process of elimination by looking at Bikepedia specs and some PDF catalogs online. I can't seem to locate the catalogs. I'm gonna backtrack and try to figure out how I can to that theory.

    It doesn't say Zero-G anywhere on the bike. One thing that may help with the ID is the stem, which is a Zoom stem.

    Ok here it is .. I can't really account for the accuracy of Bikepedia, esp for the older stuff but ...

    The '93 did not come with a Zoom stem. The '94 did, but my shifters/levers are XT, not LX. The rear derailleur just says Shimano with a huge letter A on it. Front derailleur just says Shimano and that's it.

    I don't think it's a '95 or newer. So now I've narrowed it down to '92 and earlier. I'm pretty sure I found some older Mongoose catalogs online somewhere (probably up to '89 or '90), but I can't seem to locate them.

    I got one just like this too!

    I bought it new in 93 as a 92 closeout. 24/36/46 chainrings, Araya CV-7 rims/LX hubs, XT brake levers, Mongoose flat bar, all Shimano drivetrain, and Zoom stem. Bought it for $650 if I remember correctly. Looking to freshen it up and use as a light trail bike/commuter.

    1993 is a good guess. it certainly is not a 91 or 92
