    My '08 teocali. Swapped out the forks, wheels and tyres and pedals ( Pikes, mavic En321 Hope Pro II hubs, DMR V8's
    and 2.4 Maxxis Advantage now). Relaced LH shifter with X9 'cos I bent X7 stock one. What a difference!

    Everything else is stock.

    Sycamore - Just picked up for a commuter

    I raced a little novice BMX in the late 70's in southern IL/IN. By last an best bike was a white Mongoose. I haven't ridden or been aware of the bike industry for years.

    Last week I started looking at Craigslist to find a commuter (4 miles one way) to work. I have a nice hybrid I bought about 6 years ago - it was a special design sold by a local shop. I work at a large university and bike theft is an issue. (I would be sick if my hybrid went missing one day.) I wanted something "cheap" - but a good ride (that hopefully) would not be a target for theft and if I walked out one day and it was gone - would not be a big loss. Last friday (4/17/09) I picked up a Trek 800 for $55 that needed some work. Then the next day this Mongoose popped up as a listing w/ pic. for $60. Hey, it was a white Mongoose - I had to take a look.

    I saw, I rode....and I shelled out another $60 bucks. I really like this bike as a commuter.

    Anyone have anymore info on it? Year? Is this the original set-up? Any idea of the original retail?

    My slightly modified Blackcomb(Dumb name IMHO)

    Soon to be scavaged to finish building a Voodoo Hoodoo.
    Due to the breakage I have seen Goose's go thru and the HUGE 43lb weight of this beast....time to think weight.
    Not to mention the poor rear suspension.....really dumb place for it and to replace the shock with a 6in is a really hard find!
    At 44yrs old 43lbs up and down my hills here is killer!

    The only upgrades I did were ALEX DP17's with WTB Velociraptors....a Selle Royal softer seat....some Lizard Skin here and there and some Dice Caps.
    Oh yeah and a Cateye Endro 8 puter.

    wow you need to go research aluminum alloy's moron. 6061 t6 aluminum is what is used on all bicycle frames. except maybe a select few. but they are all alloy's not straight aluminum. and as far as "heat treated" that's a term that's a applied steel. in aluminum the hardening is done during the actual making of the alloy. not heated like steel is after it has been formed.

    so before you start calling people morons you should:

    Use a T-25 star to remove the discs. You can get it from an automotive store or a place like Harbor Freight.

    No pix, but I have a MGX from about six years ago. Actually, for the price ($120 or so), it's held up ok- but I'd never take it on most trails for fear of breaking it. I'm going to finish up the year (probably only a few weeks left) with this, and finish building my Haro over the winter for some real fun next spring.

    Just got this one. It's a Mongoose Snare (dork names they come up with.. w/e). It seems to be pretty good so far. The rear shock is typical for a entry level bike. STIFF. I guess it's made for Wallymart only. $300 was up my alley though. It's mostly for trail riding and beach cruising. At 38 lbs, it's not a "light weight" by any means but beats the 45 lbs Schwinns.

    My morphed 05 Teocali

    This started life as a 2005 Teocali.
    Following a warranty claim for a craked frame and several up grades later the only thing left from the original bike are the shifters [Sram X7] , front wheel & hub and rear rim.
    The photo shows a Sun rim in the bike at the moment as my original hub packed up last week so I have a loaner wheel pending a wheel rebuild next week with a new hub.

    Gotta love Mongoose after sales service that within 2 1/2 weeks of a warranty claim I had a new 2010 frame with a Fox RP23 shock thrown in.
    I can't believe my luck really, I take in a well used 4 1/2 year old Teocali comp and ride out 3 hours later with a 2010 Teocali Super frame

    wrong.
    Here is what you got right. 6061 T6 aluminum is the most common aluminum used in bicycle frames.
    But heat treatment is not a steel specific term, and the fact is that almost all steel frames (chromo and scandium alloys included) are not heat treated. 6061 aluminum loses 80% of it's tensile strength through the welding process. As such it simply must be heat treated to restore the "grain" structure to the metal, basically when the aluminum is welded the aluminum cools too quickly for the atoms to re-align themselves in a nice organized chain, rather they are all jumbled together. Heat treatment of aluminum is done in such a way that the temperature is brought to a certain level, then cooled at a specific rate to allow those welds to essentially become one... Eliminating the negative effects of TIG welding on the 6061. Heat treating can be done to any metal to restore the best properties of the alloy, wether it's aluminum steel alloys, even titanium. However steel and titainium don't require it the way aluminum does. Titainium is welded by "purging" the tubing, and providing a backing gas flow to keep oxygen off the welds. Titainium alloys are extremely sensitive to oxygen when heated to welding temperatures.
    Dept store bikes are not heat treated the majority of the time, they compensate by using excessivly thick tubing... So tubing twice as thick after welding loses 80% of it's tensile strength, giving it 40% of the strength of tubing half as thick which has been heat treated after welding.
    Don't flame people with bad info because you don't like the fact that people who have pro quality mongooses are not happy with comparisons to a walgoose being just as able on the trails and say so.
    I rode a target schwinn full suspension frame for about 3 years. It however was 7005 series aluminum, an alloy which is more comparable to steel in it's properties of retaining strength after being welded. It held up, but the differences in that bike and my khyber frame are absolutly night and day. I put an upgraded SRAM 9 spd drivetrain and deraileur on the schwinn, and when I built up my khyber I swapped it over. The khyber climbs hills so much better with the same gearing I am able to go up hills in my middle ring, in 3rd or sometimes even 4th that had me dropping toy granny ring on the schwinn. And by the way the khyber is only about 1.5 lbs lighter. It does everything better than my schwinn, climbs decends, and corners better, more stable and balanced in the air, and the lateral stiffness alone is enough to show you why those walgooses and target schwinns are junk... They are slow wallowly junky garbage bikes with pogo stick shocks and forks. Low end "shimano equipped" parts groups. They work, and if you are careful and pick out the right ones, upgrade wisely, you will have a polished turd that will get you by until you finally can get somethig worthwhile.
    And as for my knowledge of metals, I am a professional TIG welder of nearly 5 years. I have worked with chromo, mild steel, stainless steel, various alum alloys including 6061 T6, and more... I research what I need to know in good welding specific text books and material spec sheets.
    For a good basic description of what I talked about regarding heat treatment and aluminum, check out wikipedia, just search for 6061 T6 aluminum. You will find plenty of great info.

    My '08 Meteore Team frame. I've thrown my own build onto it, as the default 9.7kg was a bit light for my needs (weedy fork, tinfoil rims).

    130mm minute MRD weighs 1490g (full steerer), the frame weighs 1480. I've since put ZTR Arches on it, along with some Candy C's (colour matched my fork by complete coincidence!). Drives through rock gardens like an AM rig. I just got new lowers with the 20mm axle, because there's no such thing as too much stiffness (well, there is priapism!).

    Excellent geometry, nicely stiff rear triangle, the newly slack head angle makes it super stable. It's a real shame that Mongoose is completely off the radar these days, their bikes are incredibly competitive (and then you see the price!).

    Monggose Canaan Elite 2010

    i love how my canaan rides,its really designed for long rides and the geometry is perfect for any situation,uphill or down. feels like hardtail,very responsive but still works on the rough even while pedalling. my shocks is set in the super soft but still remains stiff wile putting down the gas. unbelievable for its price specs and performance.

    Upgrade a Wal-Mart special? Seriously?

    So, on a bet, I have taken on a build project, and plan on having it done for the opening day @ Keystone Bike Park (06/18/2010). After one too many PBRs it as laid down that I couldn't upgrade a run of the mill "Goose from Wal-Mart, and have it in shape to ride the park. Threw a Jr T. on the front, with some Titec El Norte Bars. Next is installing an Avid disc brake on the rear, an FSA The Pig Headset, A set of Saint M815-1 cranks, and a Saint shifter. The best part... all the parts came from extra parts members of my team had or for next to nothing on Craigslist. Once we see how the first day of riding goes, it may be getting a custom MountainMafia paint and decal set come winter. I'll post pics of the rig @ Keystone in a few weeks. This should be interesting.
