    Nice Valiant, I have a Sommet
    I have a 2002 sommet. Totally tore it down when I bought it and built it up with my own bits. I'll get a pic up as soon as I can.

    I seem to have a thing for "defunct" bike. I own 2 Schwinns, a GT and a Mongoose Pro.

    mongoose pathfinder...dont know how good it is...somebody help
    i have a mongoose pathfinder, supposed to retail about 600 bucks. i hope its at least middle of the line. if anyone knows how old it is let me know. i am fairly new to the sport, since only mid december and have only gone a few rides. i like to xc and ive tried a little dh, but i took a major fall and would like to find some people to ride with. so i can learn a little more. looking for friends how can help me with techniques and lingo, and if i can find some people to ride with that would be awsome. i know its not really biking season but i love the sport and will continue to ride. thanks
    i know the chain has some rust, i went on a nice ride a few days ago and im going to clean it tonight

    Here's my Mongoose Pro Sommet....
    It's my winter/beater bike. A bit dirty from my ride today. It started out as a frame that got a bunch of used "hand-me-down" parts. But I really like riding it so I always have an excuse to buy new parts for my other bikes so a "not-so-used" part can be passed down to this frame. I actually find myself riding this bike even in the summer.

    Now it's got Hayes hydros 8" in front, 6 " in back, X-7/Sram 9.0 drive train, the last version of the XT 8 speed cranks, FSA Extreme headset, White Brothers AT-3 coil 90 mm fork, Onza bar ends, DT/Hugi front wheel and a Bontrager rear wheel with a SRAM cassette, Time ATAC pedals, XTR front derailler, and Fox AVA float rear shock.

    I just got a set of new bushings (FREE) from Mongoose and it rides like new again. It's strayed a bit from the beater bike concept I started with.

    Best part is, I still get the "my gosh he's on a walmart Mongoose" look from a few people as I pass them.

    I also have 2 schwinns that I'll post. Both kept alive with the help of the nice folks over there at Pacific bikes. Great customer service so far.

    This is my first mtn bike and still my favorite. Ive had it since '99 and has been GREAT and is still in good shape - other than a slight bend to the frame (I took it to plattykill a couple times *!%^#@) haha- my leg still has a scar from it too.

    Here's my 03 Mongoose Wing Comp
    I made a few nice additions to the frame, I swapped out the rear shock for a Cane Creek AD5, put a set of Rolfs on to get my roll on with some nice Kenda Karisma rubber, added LX shifters, LX front der, LX crankset, and an XT rear der. The fork is a Rockshox Jett, but will be swapped out later. I put on a Thomson seatpost with a very comfy WTB Rocket saddle. Amazingly she's under 30 LBS!!!
  • 05-26-2005

    Looks like you have the seat rails maxed out. Why didnt you get a race face xy post with the 1 inch offset. It would set you where you need to be instead of on the front of the rails where the seat will end up breaken from too much leverage at the back of the rails.

    Seat rails hurt when they snap and jab you in the ass through the seat.

    Here is my "Mongoose" got it for $200, used it for riding around campus. I am so impressed with this thing because I have beat the living crap out of it and it is basically fine. (UMCP campus, going down steps all day, 3 foot drops max before it bottoms out but it doesn't mind) It has been getting hand-me-down parts from my rockhopper as I upgrade it. I've changed the fork, saddle, tires, rear rim and freewheel, pedals. :D
    Oh, it also weighs 32 lbs now. Its pretty damn good for what it is!

    Mongoose Incline Help
    Hello All!
    I have a issue with my wifes bike, its a Mongoose bought from Sportsmart, model is the Incline, the brake system really blows. I was wondering if anyone has info on upgrading to a Disc Brake system, the fork has the bosses for Disc but the rear doesnt, could I use those adapters sold on the web or could you all recommend something else. I am going to upgrade the wheelset as well. I would just sell this to buy a KHS or Giant but she loves this bike. any and all help is appreciated!
    Thanks!

    What's the truth?
    I'm just starting to grow interest in this sport, but have quickly realized that it's expensive. I'm on a tight budget and want to buy a decent bike. I have heard to much bad gouge about Mongoose, but that seems to be all I can afford. Has anyone heard of a Mongoose Blackcomb. Is this a decent bike or should I keep on looking. I just want to be able to keep up with other local riders. GUIDE ME TO RIDING SALVATION!!! :p

    I had to start out on a budget, too, so last week I went to Walmart and got a Mongoose XR 250. It's dual suspension, shimano gears, front disc, etc. It's a bit heavy, probably 40 pounds or so, but it's getting me out on the trails at a fraction of the cost until I can upgrade down the road.

    I just bought a 1999 (?) NX 7.1, similar to the 7.5 poster earlier but with cheaper components. It has become my project city riding bike as I have a Fisher Cake for heavy duty MTB riding.
    I plan to save up and buy a better front fork as it has Rock shock jett c on it which is like riding a pogo stick. Looks pretty cool though, not to much damage to it either.

    Man that Blackcomb looks odd !!

    I have a bog standard Teocali Comp.

    Plans include air shocks all round ( i can't seem to loose weight, so the bike will have to), and Hope Mono M4 brakes to replace the Sole's.

    Have to say the bike handles really nice. Especially like the Freedrive system eliminating pedal bob.

    This is my '05 Mongoose Hardluck. I've just spent my whole saturday morning giving it a good service, as well as bolting up my new raceface bashguard! It's all stock apart from the bashguard and the S.D.G Bel-Air FX. It's definitely one of my 'pride and joys'.

    Let me know what you think!

    My '06 Mongoose Blackcomb








    It's completely stock right now. I might upgrade to a better front fork and rear shock if I find a good deal on ebay. Other than that, I don't want to put too much money into it. I've ridden it a lot over the past 4 weeks on some good single track. Beginner and Intermediate trails. It's taken a few small drops without problem. It handles the rough terrain well and does a good job sprinting downhill. Climbing is a little rough, due to the weight (about 38lbs) and the crappy shocks. Everything else is working flawlessly!

    Kind Regards,
    Axel

    Just got my new Canaan from Performance. I still have to shorten the front brake line and get everything adjusted. I've already switched out the 110mm stem for a 100mm and installed some old time ATAC pedals. I was surprised to see a 31.6mm seatpost instead of the 27.2mm spec'd on the Mongoose website. Can't wait to ride it this weekend.

    How'd it go?
    I just a review of the 'Team' in a mag in the UK (not sure which). It won the group test. The mag said the freedrive was excellent in the lower travel format and thought the elite might be better than the team as it didn't have the reactive fox fork. I was wondering if you report how the ride went. I like the Teocali but am not sure if I need the extra travel and the weight. This bike has an awesome frame design and looks really well with the silver finish.

    I was wondering if you report how the ride went.
    Only one ride so far, a 14 mile loop of mostly fireroad climbs and descents on mixed terrain. The bike rides great, no pedal feedback, great traction while climbing, and very stable going downhill. It feels solid, well designed, and has some nice components for the money. The horizontal top tube length is on the long side at 23.5" (med frame) but this works well with a shorter stem to quicken the steering a tad with the slacker than average (in this category) 69.5 deg head angle. BTW, the Mongoose website lists a Fox RP3 and a 27.2mm seat post for this bike. It comes with a Fox RP2 shock and a 31.6mm seat post.

    '95 Mongoose IBOC Zero-G
    Nothing stock left except the seatpost and BB... got it new in late '95 and it's been my main bike for 12 years (I just finally got a road bike, though). It's had a few stints in mothballs but it's served me well over the years and lately it's been back up and running again.

    Ive only heard bad things about the pearl air, try the Marzocchi Roco Air R, its cheap and fits the suspension curve on the teocali very well. Its also RED too, so it matches ur frame well :D

    My 04 Wing Comp, It is a nice bike the frame is heavy and strong at the same time, The only weakness are the shocks, I got it new in the box from ebay for $278 last fall. I upgraded rear derailleur to Deor LX and added a front disk brake. For the rides that I do here in PA it is worth the money, It is smooth and it took stood to the roocky trerrain until last week when I blew the rear shock. I am still in the process of getting a new rear shock but I having trouble finding a decent one under $200 since I don't want to put a lot of money in the bike.

    What experience are you guys havingwith the Mongoose Wing Comp?

    A couple pics of my rig before upgrading some stuff. I plan on totally overhauling the bike piece by piece. I have a set of Titec El Norte (31.8) bars and a Truvativ Hozlefeller stem that should be here tomorrow. I also have a disc brake for the rear that should be here this week. I'll post some pics after I get all that installed. Next on the list? I'm going to replace the shock (maybe with a fox) and the fork... still undecided on which one, but I want 150mm of travel. I'm also going to move to Saint components. Any suggestions let me hear em.

    I'll speak for my Wing Comp, as you pointed out the main weakness is the suspension. I replaced my rear shock with a Fox float that I bought from Ebay; that made a world of difference. I have a Rockshox Psylo on the front, not everyones favorite fork, which combined with the rear shock make a decent combo. I don't ride it much these days since I bought a couple of other bikes in the past couple of years but its still a fun ride when I do take it out.

    A couple pics of my ride after I replaced the stock bars and stem with a set of El Nortebars and a Truvativ stem. I have a new disc brake for the back, but am thinking about waiting to install it until I get a Transition Revolution wheelset.

    Don't the Rituals have like a stupid-long top tube? Like 23" or something? I can't remember. I'm like 5'8" on a good day, don't think I could handle that, but I like the frame. Why no size options, I ask!?
    Also, what bars are those?
    Got a price in mind yet?
