    Mongoose IBOC Comp ID

    Can anyone ID the exact year of this IBOC Comp? I believe it's early 90s.



    Here's some more info and results of my research:

    Serial #: M1J 13507
    Tires: Panaracer Smoke Lite 1.9
    Stem: Zoom
    Shifters: XT
    Brakes: XT
    Front Derailleur: just says Shimano
    Rear Derailleur: says Shimano and has big letter A

    I can't really account for the accuracy of Bikepedia, esp for the older stuff but ...

    The '93 did not come with a Zoom stem. The '94 did, but my shifters/levers are XT, not LX. I don't think it's a '95 or newer. So now I've narrowed it down to '92 and earlier, unless Bikpedia is inaccurate.

    I'm sorry to piggyback on this thread. But according to rules I need to post 5 or more to start by own. Before my introduction to what I ride which is a Mongoose, I would like to know what are the pros and cons of a rigid frame in different type of trails. Last time I rode was 1991 which was all asphalt. So really a noob and starting over. Thanks for any info.

    And here is my intro to MTBR.
    My name is Alan and I ride a:

    Mongoose IBOC Comp
    Tange Double Butted Chromoly 4130 Rigid Frame
    Chromo 4130 Straight Forks
    Shimano Equipped: EXAGE 500LX M500 Group; STI shifters
    ARAYA RX-7 Rims
    Non OEM Replacements and Adds: Panaracer Fire XC Pro 26x2.1 tires, Slime Tubes, Avenir Mountain Saddle
    Just recently started riding again (1991 was the last time) and replaced the obvious which were the rotted tires. Will ride until things show up as need to be repair/replace. Photo - @Towsley Canyon Park

    Nice blog.
    Thanks for the link.
    Yes, I keep reading the Mongoose MTBs from the late 80s 90s were pretty good during their hey days. Reason for me to keep this until I warrant a need for a new modern bike.
