    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.

    Mongoose (but not sure of model)

    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!!!

    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.
    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!

    teocali elite



    I just bought this baby from a seller on ebay. I got a good deal on it, and am pretty stoked about it. Baby feels like a cadillac, and can climb pretty well. I haven't put it through its paces yet. I just assembled it about a hour ago.

    My bike is the newer version of summitlt's bike. Minus those crazy modifications . I ripped off the stickers to make it look less cheesy It's all stock except for a seatcover and a new rear derailler

    Yeah I know it's a cheap $250 cosco bike. It's my only bike and it gets the job done. Never had anything break.

    I got it done by someone on here that posted some pics in the DH forum. its actualy anodized not paint. that makes it so that the only original parts on my teocali is the front deralieur and the metal of the frame. every other part on it has been swapped out.

    New question here. 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!!!

    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.

    Sweet, dude! That's an exceptional bike. I've always had a soft spot for Mongoose cycles. It was my first mtn bike. It's good to see them climbing back atop the ladder again.
