I recently purchased this bicycle in store and couldn't help but be totally disappointed in the quality of unit. Since my purchase and one 3 mile ride through CITY streets I've been consistently let down. I used to be a big fan of the value that older Mongoose brand bikes had but this one has me ready to send the bike back to the store. So far, in two weeks of ownership, I've found that not one brake nor gear shift is remotely close to being adjusted correctly. I've also found that both front and rear rims came bent, no cable caps had been installed so all cables are frayed, and while some parts (like the handle bar) are finger tight others are stripped and drowned in locktite! While Mongoose support has been great, it still hasn't resolved my problems as half the parts are on back-order or didn't ship at all. I wonder what the lead time from china is for the company so that I can finally ride my bike without feeling like i'm on a washing machine every time I touch the brakes. I'm truly disappointed in this bike and I will likely never purchase another product from this brand as a result.
It should have come assembled not in a box
The handlebar is too short, and the seat post is too low (short too).
I love my new mongoose mens bash mountain bike. it tackles any road I have in front of me with ease. very strong bike and gets through the toughest terrain. the seat and handle bars are very comfortable as well
Bought right before Christmas and Sears was last resort. Well I will go to them first cuz got fast without any hassel
