    It's a nice bike, Heavyish for all mountain use, but very durable, mine is a custom frame only, as featured with a fox rlc fork , wtb wheels, race face downhill crank, saint brakes and sram x9 twisties. a great climber and descender. the shock setup is very persnickity, it took a while to dial it in perfectly, too little air pressure and it has lots of bobbing, too much pressure and the rebound was too fast even with it fully damped, the tst5 feature of the shock is a joke, but with it turned off, it is very plush..

    Can I ask where you got it and what it cost ya for the frame-only? Mongoose doesn't offer it that way, but I know of a shop that will. He's out of ALL non-XC Mongoose bikes right now. Should just save up for the 09 DH rig and a Nugget...

    I split the cost with someone looking for a parts kit for a 6.6, It worked to be a good deal for both of us. The stock parts are all top shelf

    Use to race with 80cc moto X fork 8 to 10 inch up front and modified rear link for 8 inch in the rear, in those days six inch was the max from all the cie.

    Do you know how much the teocalli can handle up front? As much as I love my pike, I need a bit more beef up front.

    I think the older ones are good also,it matters what model you got,but the dept. store ones are crap.I remember when I was a kid growing up in the 70's how it was every kids dream to own an Mongoose or Redline BMX(This was before the MTB craze started),now they're all over the place and the names been dragged through the mud because of the dept. store junk.They have a bad stigma attached to them now,but they still make very good bikes.I just bought a '08 Canaan Team frame and I just know someone will have something to say about it,but I don't care because I know it's a good frame

    If a bike works and serves the riders purpose how does that make it crap, I have a Mongoose Teocali and I also got a Mongoose Tactic I got on clearance at Kmart for $150 and I can ride any trails on it that I ride the Teocali or your bike for that matter.

    If you can't tell the difference between your teo and your BSO mongoose, that's fine for you, but do me a favor and when the bso breaks dispose of it properly don't abandon it on the side of the trail, I've hauled 3 out of the woods so far this year..

    I wish people would stop ****ing comparing department store bikes to the real deal! Jeezusfuk!! NOT THE SAME THING! It's seriously like comparing caviar to cheese spread. Department store frames are not heat treated, just to split the difference in the most simple form of understanding. They were not designed, tested, then redesigned for maximum performance. They did not undergo heavy test sessions under the asses of pro riders such as Eric Carter, Andrew Cho and Andrew Neethling!
    They were designed for the masses of "average americans" who will probably never actually ride the POS and it will do not much more than sit next to the barbecue grill collecting spider webs.
    If you seriously "can't tell the difference" between your $150 bike and your $1500 bike...you're
    A: An absolute moron.
    B: An absolute moron who doesn't ride either bike.
    C: A handicapped mron who can't ride either.
    D: Too f*cking fat to get on either.

    Or most likely
    F: Don't actually own a real bike.

    Look guys,I'm sure he can tell the difference because if he couldn't why spend $1500 on the bike in the first place.I think he's just saying he can get along fine with the cheaper one if he has to,not that it can replace his more expensive bike.

    Anyways,here's my humble Team build...





    I really like it so far,the FS has really helped my old and brittle bones.If you'd like the list of components let me know and I'll list them.The LBS really did a number on the Mongoose logos on the seat tube,not a huge deal,but still.

    For some one who can't read you shouldnt call people morons, heres exactly what i wrote,

    "If a bike works and serves the riders purpose how does that make it crap, I have a Mongoose Teocali and I also got a Mongoose Tactic I got on clearance at Kmart for $150 and I can ride any trails on it that I ride the Teocali or your bike for that matter."

    .... if you have trouble reading it, get an adult to read it for you .

    The Tactic is my ride around the Nieborhood bike because the other one will get stolen where I live no matter how many locks or what locks I use and I cant justify spending another $1000 dollars on a secondary bike. Also the bicycle shaped object stuff is mostly just B.S., I've never seen any one I know have any problems with even barely maintained cheap bikes falling apart and killing them. I'm starting to wonder why I signed up here if this is the kind childish posts that are made, people trolling forums just to tell people their bikes are crap is just plain sad.

    P.S. thrillseeker, you need to learn to read and grow up!

    Perhaps comparing a $150 to a $1500 bike by "riding around your neighborhood" isn't really worthy of you running your mouth? 90% of the trails I like to ride I would seriously not even advise you trying to run the Teo on. And you're trying to tell me you can ride your WallyWorld Special on these?
    I bought an El Cheapo for my wife and ripped the brake bosses off the fork doing a quickie little nose manual for my daughters. They're ****E.
    But whatever! Thanks to those masses of people who buy them, the top line Mongoose stuff is cheap as hell, so keep buyin!

    Whos the one runnin his mouth? I remember being call a moron by someone who seems to have trouble reading. As I said before you need to learn to read and grow up. Also if your so positive their such dangerous pieces of crap why would you by one for your wife? Sounds to me you will just say what ever takes to be right. Broke of the Brake bosses ? I find that hard to believe, and if so it sure is hell isnt a common occurance, with probably 90% of the bikes in the world being cheap department store bike if they were as dangerous as all this bike shop propaganda wants us to believe the death rate would be higher than death from cancer.

    I'm well aware the quality of the bikes isn't as high and they are usually way heavier than bike shop bikes but they are not death traps if assembled by someone that knows what they are doing. I have done plenty of XC riding on cheap bikes and never had any issues, Ive also done the same on good bikes that made it easier because they were lighter, had a smoother rides if they had suspenson, shifting didnt need adjusting as often, and required less maintanence, I bought the better bike for lighter wieght and better suspention and for jumping. Anyhow this all I got to say on this, say what ever you want I dont plan to respond but im sure you will want to get in the last word any way.

    Who needs to grow up now? This isn't a game of "last word" this is about people like you blabbering on about these $100 bikes being able to do what engineered bikes can do. It's bad enough having an inexperienced rider on a trail that's even slightly outside their skill level, the last thing they need to think is that their rig is up to the task when it's the only thing they're most likely relying on to get them through.

    And as for your completely retarded question about a POS bike for my wife...? Because she's one of the masses that let's it sit against the barbecue grill all summer long. All she needs it to do is keep up with my 4 year old on training wheels every saturday for 20 minutes. And I barely trust it to do that. Which is why my "wife" is "getting" a Khyber...that happens to be about my size.

    Made simple: If all bikes were created equal there wouldn't be $6000 bikes and $100 bikes. What's that old saying..."You don't bring a knife to a gun fight." But perhaps in-town paved bike trails don't quite fall in the "gun fight" category, now do they?

    Thanks!I'm going to post better pictures later.

    Great choice with the Amasa,I think it's a great deal compared to some of the bigger names out there and Mongoose has done a great job lately with their bikes.

    Please do post pictures of it when you get it,I love seeing other riders bikes!

    Amasa Super

    Well here it finally is. It came in yesterday and I went and picked it up, took it for a quick ride at Performance Bike and then went for about a half an hour ride last night. I must say that I am glad I chose this over the Gary Fisher Piranha. The Mongoose feels more comfortable and I just couldn't convince myself to buy the GF even though they were the same price.

    All the components are Shimano Deore except the RD which is XT and the brakes which are something else which I can't remember off the top of my head but they are hydrolic. I love the wheels too, they are very light.

    Only changes so far are the small seat bag and the LED taillight that you can see in the pics. I also have a red Lizard Skins chain stay on order as well.





    I really love the shape of the frame on this bike








    Here is a link to my old Schwinn

    Oh and my DD, no Mongoose but what the heck.

    The bike felt great last week on the trail, it was a ton of fun. My tires were actually really low on air cuz I didn't have a new pump but no pinch flats. It climbed well and was real stable on the downhill sections. Overall I am very happy with the bike and glad I chose it.

    Amasa Super

    Here is my '08 Amasa Super. When I picked it up and took it home it appeared that the RS Tora 302 had a "hemorrhaging" problem. I had not even rode it once, and the fork was spewing oil like a mentos and diet coke experiment. So the guys at the bike shop hooked me up w/ a Marzocchi MX Lo Pro (100mm). After dialing in w/ correct air pressure, I do dig the fork. I had to change my front rotor size to 160mm in place of the 180 due to fork limits. Also I put on my old stand by 747 pedals, and my old serfas Ti saddle. Overall, I am pleased with the bike, It handles my 'clydesdaleness' just fine so far.

    I've got a '96 IBOC Pro-SX that I need to build back up. I'll probably put it together as an easy geared single speed to ride around the neighborhood with my kids. I bought it as a frame only in the Summer of 1996. Crazy light Ritchey Logic Pro tubing. It's a 17" frame and weighs something like 3.7 pounds. The total build up in 1997 was 23 pounds using XTR 8-sp shifter/brake lever combos, RF Turbine LP cranks, RS Judy SL fork, XTR M-950 cassette, Mavic 217 rims and White Industries hubs, Answer Hyperlite handlebar. I was so in love with that bike when I first built it up. Flexy as heck, but fun to ride.

    1st post. Here is my 09 Mongoose Teocalli. I had been out of mountain biking for the last 6 years, got Fat and Lazy, and last year I decided to get into shape. Took up Road Biking, and now feel it is time to start mountain biking again. Going out for first ride today. Just picked up the bike Friday Night.
