    Mongoose Black Diamond Double Follow-up

    This is a follow-up to the Mongoose Black Diamond Double. First off, This bike Hauls ass!!! I beat my friend, which was riding a Specialized Stuntjumper!! Not bad for a Freeride/DH bike. The Floating BB alows for an amazingly smooth suspension, and compliments the braking distubution as well. This bike feels like it is on rail, when it's going downhill. I mean, I've ridden a Giant Glory DH, and I would take this bike over it anyday! I must say, this bike is best at dropping and jumping. Idk what it is (mabye the frame geo), but the bike is just so nimble and easy to control while flying. Great overall bike and I would reccomend this bike to the aspiring freerider, or the next Sam Hill.


    Feel free to ask any questions!!

    That's what so strange... Mongoose must have been bought out by someone, because the new company is Mongoose Pro, check out the website...
    Mongoose - Target
    Mongoose Pro - Crazy nice deals on good bikes...

    Mongoose and GT are now under one company called pacific cycles. Notice how the mongoose Freeride linkage is similar to the I-Drive linkage. I have the Black diamoind triple. My only concern is the front fork. Marzocchi says to set the air up to a certain pressure in the 66 SL1 but it feels to stiff and ive heard there was a post up here that had revised air charts.

    mongoose/mongoose pro

    I know wht u mean bro, but there is a huge diffrence between mongoose & mongoose pro. It's like Iron horse department store bikes, and there Pro bikes. Two totally diffrent categories!!

    Stop bullshitting. You haven't read or comprehended the rest of this thread, or you would know that the bike he bought, would not be sold at target, and is not a cheap bike.

    o and also, just because he road that bike and beat his friend doesnt mean its fast. its almost all in the rider. yet it helps to have a sick bike but alot of it has to do with the riders skills.

    What the hell is that box on the TT with the Push sticker on it? And the big gold rod sticking out from the shock? And then is that a plastic tube going from that rod to the box?

    i have read all 14 some odd pages of that post and its crazy....seriously i followed my LBS advice on set-up which was basically the same as the sticker chart that comes on the fork leg...NOT the manual the fork came with...bu remember fill the bottom first than the top...

    i rented an Iron-horse Yakuza Aniki at hunter mountain(and it was brand new). was doing some table-tops, and the rear dropout gave-out and bent the deraillur so far back, that it caught the spokes of the wheel, and ripped our about 12 spokes, ultimetly throwing me off the bike, and Hunter mountain giving me my $65 back! Based on than experience, I dont think I will be riding an Iron HOrse anytime soon.

    You're an idiot. That picture is from 2004 and is an old turner from when Eric Carter was crossing over.

    It's PUSH industries getting readings on the shock & data acquisiton on what the shock (can be setup for the fork as well) is doing.

    I actually rode this bike on a run locally.....I didn't like the air shock it came with...the bike handled very poorly through rock gardens and such.....no smoothanicity at all....I actual wouldn't ride it at high speeds because it just didn't give you confidence .....it was a weird feeling getting back on my M-3.....the M-3 just felt way way smoother

    Yea but that wasn't already stated in page 1. By page 2 its already been said and you say "its a f***** turner" like its some revelation.

    But i've seen your other threads as well, and that's why you're an idiot ( http://forums.mtbr.com/showthread.php?t=307176 )

    The very last black diamond single (the black on in the back i believe the 4th bike on the rack) is Steve Romaniuks bike and the middle two I believe are Eric Carters. I dont know who has the black diamond triple in the front.
