    Mongoose... very frustrated..

    I've got an 09 pinn'r that I am upgrading some components on and getting back into the sport.

    I'm learning that Mongoose is no longer supporting anything in the states. I've contacted a few shops and most of them had to clue. Contacting Mongoose directly yields a message of "try a GT dealer" I hate to say that this is why I stayed away from Iron Horse when I bought this bike and now I'm in the same spot

    Does anyone know where I can get the pivot hardware or a boot'r dogbone? I bought a ROCO WC according to the specs on the swingarm direct from Marzocchi and come to find out will not fit with the current dogbone.

    I appreciate any help.

    Matt

    I hate to state the obvious, but did you try contacting a GT dealer? Or even GT online?
    Don't you hate it when a sentence doesn't end the way you think it octopus?

    Yes.. the dealer I called was confident he'd be able to get what I was looking for and called back with the bad news and a little education on just what was going on. they're only distributing in europe. he then told me to be very careful with the "consumables" because they wouldnt be able to be sources. im sure the fasteners I can use the ones on there or make due with something, I did work for fastenal afterall. I had hoped to get the boot'r dogbone though so I could gain an inch of travel.
