    Mongoose XR 200

    Mongoose XR 200

    This is one awesome bike for the money. If you are looking for something affordable and rugged that won't cost an arm and a leg to maintain or repair this is the best deal I could find:















    Specs include:

    Aluminum swing link, alloy dual-suspension frame
    ZOOM fork
    21-speed SRAM MRX Pro/Shimano TX-30
    Promax disc brake with rear alloy V-Brake
    Alloy levers
    Mongoose Alloy-forged three-piece crankset
    36-spoke black andonized alloy rims
    Kickstand
    Quick-release seat

    I own this bike and have punished it for quite some time and it handles everything I throw at it. If you do have a problem Mongoose has the best customer service I have ever had the pleasure to deal with. Just let them know what is wrong and they will ship out whatever you need, no questions asked. If you are looking to get into the sport for under $200 and get the most out of your riding experience without breaking the bank then this is the best deal on the net!

    Have any questions? Hit me up!

    Ride Safe!

    I think you are looking for the "Weight Weenies" thread. This bike isn't carbon fiber but it doesn't seem heavy at all to me.

    I like my bikes to weight right around 30 lbs or less. I'm not trying to get an all carbon fiber, sub 22 lbs bike. Just trying to stay away from the 35+ lbs bikes.

    Shipping weight on it is 42 lbs. *shrugs*

    I don't think anyone buying this bike is all that concerned with weight, its more of a "get what you can" at a given price point.

    And that's fine. Sometimes you find a suprising deal.

    Does that include the box and all the packing materials? Like I siad it doesn't seem like it is that heavy. I may need to find some truck scales and weigh in.

    The way I've weighed mine, I just tighten the rear brake adjuster until the wheel won't spin then ballance the bike on a regular bathroom scale. It won't be perfect, but it'll be a good ball park.

    Its the shipping weight, so I'd imagine that DOES include the packing materials... I can't imagine the packing materials accounting for much weight though.

    Looks like he just pulled the cheesy decals off.

    There's apparently a difference(obvious frame differences) between the XR 200 and the XR-200, LOL, don't ask me why they didn't change up the names a bit more?...

    No, but I might paint it later after I put a few more miles on it. It comes with the red and black and there is a Schwin FS that is almost just like it. I just took the cheesy stickers off of it and it looked great. If you take your stickers off make sure you save the date code sticker. It's near the bottom bracket near the cranks. If you have a warranty problem you will need the date code when you report it. Its the small silver and black sticker.

    To me, the frame design seemed alot more robust than the XR-75s and the older XR-200(silver one). I nearly bought one, but didn't like the look of some of the welds and everything I've read on the rear suspension made it sounds like more of a nuisance than not.

    I did buy a Walmart bike though, Schwinn Sidewinder. I liked that it didn't have FS, less to break and the frame seemed sturdy(sure, its heavy too). Didn't want to spend a ton of money on a hobby I might not pursue. Sure, I could have bought used, but I wouldn't have known what to look out for as far as prior owner abuse. The Scwhalmart bike allowed me to get on the road quick. So far so good, but only bought it less than a week ago. Figured I'd just run the bike into the ground and buy an entry level LBS bike when its trashed. If I can't trash it properly, maybe I'll just upgrade it and become one of the forum oddities.

    I would love to see some pics of it if you have any.

    As far as the welds go on the XR I looked at several until I found one that was acceptable. Sometimes you get lucky and run into a factory worker that has some pride and it shows in their work. I stayed away from the assembled units in the garden section of the store as I knew the inside of the rear frame would be rusted. The one I got was quite clean and grey on the inside. The rear suspension is why I picked the XR. It is simple and rugged and made from steel. The forces are linear where the rear suspension meets the front frame and the welds at those points are thick and sturdy. The pins that hold the bottom and top sections are thick. I just coated those parts that move and the pins with a little bit of bearing grease so they are quiet and operate smoothly. On the bottom connection there are plastic grommets that hold the steel section together on the aluminium welded receivers. The only problem there I can see is after a while they might wear but so far it is very quiet and operates nicely. I agree about the trash comment. Just be careful as to not trash yourself in the process lol!

    I feel the OP presented a compelling case, good enough to turn me over to his side and accept that possibly, this mongoose is more bike than we think it to be.

    I will agree. Oddly enough. I generally hate wally world bikes, but I have a customer with one of these who is in the process of upgrading some parts as they wear out and despite it being a lead sled he seems to like it and thats fine with me. Good luck all.

    To theMongoose Pilot Haters.

    Hey Mongoose Pilot,

    I just happened to come upon your thread accidently. I was looking up info on the XR 200 and came upon eveyone bashing your threads and the bike its self. I admit, yes I bought a Wal Mart Bike for 200.00, but I did so because I am new to the sport/hobby, Its not that I could'nt of bought a higher end entry bike for 700 or 800 dollars its because I am new to the sport and I though well if I get into it and hate it or its just not me I only invested some time and 200 verses 800. So to Cummy or crumby or whatever your name is, stop bashing people for the bike they ride. Most of us do this for the fun and exercise of it or like myself I am just starting out, and not to look gay with my package showing in biker shorts on a stunning high end expensive bike. What happened to experianced riders such as your self in helping and keeping MTB a fun and comfortable hobby? Why shy people away from what could be a great sport to get into. You only now make people and myself feel like we have to be embarraced because I am on a cheap starter bike, and we are lammers or something. If you ask me you guys are bike snobs. I totally agree with mongoose pilot. GOD SPEED Mongoose pilot, By the way its not always the bike that makes the rider a great rider. In my other pasionate hobby of RC racing I would never shut out a newbie because he bought a 200 dollar RTR verses my 1000 or more truck, but he would become a great driver because I gave him or her pos feedback and a helping hand, and a great welcome to the sport. Eat that S@#t! Cummy.

    hay,
    If you wanna use a barbie fishing pole to catch a trout...go for it
    Using a toy for MTB can hurt you tho...

    nice first post JA

    and to make it more realistic of 'scale'...how about if someone came out with a $30 RC that only turned when you went in reverse?
    Honestly... ahh I give up

    Thanks Highdelll,

    I am not trying to bash people on here. Everyone has the right to jump in the sport investing it all or in my case investing a little to test the waters with my barbie fishing pole while while carrying the experiance back home in my 30.00 RC truck that only turns in reverse-it makes getting home by the way pretty fn' difficult. You are obviouly an experianced biker? What do you suggest for a great starter bike that wont cost me a ton just to try out the sport, and to keep my self in one piece?

    Choices

    Thanks for the support. I'm not ashamed of the purchase I made. I haven't hurt myself or anyone else with it and as far as the XR 200 goes, I think it is one of the best investments I have made. It even turns both directions forward and backwards. I don't need to bash anyone either. Maybe that is what the sport is about, supporting others and being a good influence. Dragging Barbie into this will solve nothing and as far as Highdell and the others are concerned they are close minded. In other words, if you don't think like they do then they will reject you and your ideas. The bottom line is one should make their own decision regardless of what others think. If you want a great bike that won't break the bank and you hate those little shorts the other guys wear then hit me up. I am restoring a Mongoose Masher for sale and have started rebuilding bikes that people donate or just abandon.

    Dood, you can spend the same$$ on CL and get 10X the bike you could ever get at wamlart et. al.
    350-400 bucks can get you a new hopper or somethin,,,at the bike shop or 'LBS'
    a department store bike is a TOY - and dangerous to ride any serious trails.

    Assume

    You assume everyone that buys a bike wants to race downhill trials. Do you think one would need to spend 1k for a bike that they wish to ride on a jogging trial casually? Don't answer that.

    If I were to buy a bike for a 'casual jogging trail'
    I would want a bike that:
    -Didn't have a sloppy/dangerous fork
    -had a decent derailleur that shifted well
    -had pedals that weren't sloppy/floppy
    -fit me well
    -didn't weigh 40lbs unnecessarily...
    etc

    you dont have to spend $1000 to get that either

    Wow you just described...

    -Has a decent tight fork
    -has a decent derailleur that indexes flawlessly
    -has pedals that aren't sloppy/floppy
    -fits me like a fine suit
    -doesn't weigh 40lbs unnecessarily...

    That describes a bike I paid about $200.00 for:

    This one was donated and all I need now is a back rim to finish it out:

    No one could ever be as perfect as you so just delight in that fact, Highfall.

    Thanks Highdelll,
    I will check that thread out. You truely dont have to spend a lot of money to get a descent ride, and be safe at the same time. MGP-you keep rocking out on your XR 200 as I will for now, as well. Highdell is right though I will def not be hitting any hardcore trails with this bike unless I want some serious injuries! Thanks for the help, and setting me in the right direction. When I do get my first non dept store bike I will post it here. Eating your dust MTB riders.

    i agree with highdelll. i would buy a used bike for 200. then when i am ready to get something better i would have a frame that would make a sweet singlespeed project. its stupid to have rear suspension for jogging trails being ridden casually. infact, its stupid to have front suspension. i would get a $200 rigid with some decent parts.. probably come in under 30# too....

    True

    It's all a matter of preference. I agree with Highdell on some points and not others. As far as suspension goes on a jogging trail it is just a matter of comfort and ease of use. Perhaps when you get older you might appreciate those points. The XR is not a hardcore trail or downhill bike, although I have hit some advanced trails with it I don't recomend amature riders to even attempt it without first knowing the entire bike, components and safety precautions on ANY bike. Would I like a new Mongoose Pinn'r? Sure I would, but I can't justify the cost unless I was competing professionally and winning some prize money. The point of this post is that the XR-200 is a great bike and it is affordable for people who would like to try out the sport, some light to medium trails or are just looking to get into shape by doing a few miles a day on a jogging trail. I never said this bike was the end all be all or that it was indestructable but it is a good bike if you know how to tune and maintain it properly and are looking for an affordable entry point that also features a killer warranty and super customer support. Think about it, if you break something on a used bike or a LBS bike you won't have such an easy time getting FREE replacements for it. At some point, if you really love the sport, then I do recommend a top of the line specifically designed rig.

    Ride safe and save money for the medical bills, especially if you don't have insurance.

    hey mongoose dont let them guys give you any crap, hell i love my xr250, im not hardcore but i do occasionally get a wild hair, i havent had any problems, i also have a hardtail i hardly ever ride since i went to full suspension, after a few miles on the ht i start to feel every lil bump and pebble on the road, thanks to a 25 year old back injury, the full suspension bike allows me to ride longer and rougher trails without feeling like someone beat me with a stick afterwards, they will understand this in a few years. you other guys dont get me wrong i would love a higher end bike, but i ride what i have, and its doing its job well

    Old Dudes

    Yeah, us old dudes will be just fine and I don't let their lack of experience get to me at all. You know there is always an advantage to having years of experience and plenty of perks. Lone knows what I am talking about.

    As an update here is the finished Mongoose Masher with both new rims and tires. Tons of other new parts and features and it is up for sale if anyone is interested:

    I think those are cool rides, both your Masher and 200. as long as your happy and get lots of enjoyment then its a win/win situation for you. if you take care of your bike(s), and dont abuse them, i dont see why they wont last a long time,, and be competitive with alot of other bikes...

    I have a mongoose hardtail too,, ill try to post some pics. in a few days.

    Thanks for being open minded. I love riding both of them and they are holding up great. I'm sure other people have had problems but seriously I think it's a lack of knowledge on the part of the owners for the most part. Some models are cheap and rickety but the two I have seem to be just fine and they didn't come with a disclaimer sticker like the lower end ones. Once again thanks for the support and I can't wait to see your hardtail rig.
