    need help preferrably quick

    Looking at a cheap priced older mongoose rockadile on a swap shop. It is 25 bucks and I figured it would be a great SS project for later if it wasn't a member of the cheap wal mart mongooses. I see it has a quill stem so that makes me think early 90s? Can anyone tell me if this was a good bike in the day? Even at $25 if it is a wal mart bike I won't waste the money. Waiting on seller to reply to me so I hope someone sees this soon and can help.

    Meh. i would hold out for something better.

    i have no knowledge or experience with it, but it looks pretty cheap. if your planning on using it as a SS commuter maybe, or a bar hopper your not worried about getting stolen maybe, but for trail use... no thanks. there's better stuff out there.

    now i'm confused. it looks like the older ones were nicer? the first couple i found were either high tensile steel or aluminum and cheap, then i found this.

    what do you want to use it for?
    Rigid SS 29er
    SS 29+
    Fat Lefty
    SS cyclocross
    Full Sus 29er (Yuck)

    Stop asking how much it weighs and just go ride it.

    a good ss trail bike. I read somewherew that the 90s models sold for around 800 bucks. Doesn't this look like an older one? All the ones I see from the 2000s have stacked stems

    Look at the stem. Mine pictured has a quil stem similar to my 1991 bridgestone. I was assuming this may be an early 90s model
