It's really all that vintage or collectible, but it does have sentimental value. This is my 1995 Mongoose IBOC Zero-G, that my parents bought me when i was 13 years old. It even still has my Scotts Valley, CA PD bicycle serial license for theft recovery on it, LOL
It is all original except for:
Specialized titanium 0 rise stem
Rock Shox Judy XC Gen 2
Aftermarket rear cantilevers (tubular shaped with kool stops)
and the crappy torn Vetta seat
I am also going to have to replace the headset, I noticed some wobble in it. I was messing around with it and when I was backing a bolt out it sheared in half, I guess there is my answer as to why it was loose (YST 1" threadless), never done this before so I guess I'm going to leave it to a pro unless it's not that hard and someone can walk me through it.
I also noticed the rear der shifter/lever combo (LX) does not seem to work, I can shift the front der fine (rough but it works), but the rear thumbshifters just moves and nothing happens, there is no resistance or gear feeling, just free movement both ways. I'm not sure if this means the shifter is shot, or if the cable broke, if the rear der (LX) is seized or what. Any advice would be appreciated.
Anyhow just thought I would share with everyone. I just got it back after about 7 years this last weekend, surprisingly the original Panaracer tires still hold air.
