A Mongoose is NOT always the 1500 to 3500 dollar bike that we adore. Recently I bought a mongoose for under 200 bucks. It came with what I call cheap wheels and tires very similar to those found on cheaper bikes..When you pay under 200 bucks you can't expect to get the stainless spokes and an almost perfectly tuned bike. I am guessing but I believe most of the cheaper Mongoose bikes may have some generic parts. For example my tires look like cheap 10-15 dollar tires. They are stamped with the load range at 198 Lbs.. HOWEVER, for a low priced bike I am HAPPY with mine and the tires are holding up well. I had to tune the bike and will soon take it apart and grease the bearings and cables. Both derailleurs front and back were not set correctly and she shifted like a dog. The front tire wobbled so badly it would rub on the brake shoe with each revolution and setting the hand brake was almost impossible. I fixed it by simply truing the wheel using a small wrench on the spokes and adjusting the derailleurs. This is easily done. I simply loosen the spoke that pulls the tire off to the side and tighten the two on the opposite side. I make small adjustments at a time until she is fixed.. I tuned the bike and now I LOVE her. Mine has 27 speeds.. I am 62 years old and still buff. I weigh just over 200 lbs. In granny gear this bike pulls hills very slowly and yes it takes some getting used to.. If you tune this bike and take care of it I believe you will get your money's worth unless you end up with a real lemon. It's best to consider what you want this bike to do before you buy. I tool around on the farm on mine and ride trails up to 3 or 4 miles a day just for exercise. If you want professional, pay out the yang, yang..If you want a bike to enjoy in your leisure time then this baby may work for you and save you big bucks too.

PROS: A lot of features for a very low price. Shocks on the front, spring loaded isolation from real wheel, on-handlebar twist-type gear shift, 21 speeds, nicely constructed.

CONS: You get what you pay for. Wheels, components, and handle grips are mediocre quality. I had to spend about two hours adjusting the brakes and derailleurs before it was ready to ride. But that puts it in the category with my $500 road bike when it arrived. I was a little annoyed that the adjustments were so far off, and being an inexpensive bike it takes three hands to squeeze the derailleur the right way and tighten the cable bolt. After a little trial and error, I finally got it. And those little crimped caps on the ends of the cable kept coming off because they had been improperly crimped at the factory. There seems to be no place for a bottle cage or frame pump. My bike had poor threads on one crank so it was impossible to install the pedal without cross threading. Also, the plastic guard on the large chain ring broke after transporting the bike on several trips. In my case, I simply removed the broken guard and forgot about it. The derailleurs need periodic adjustment but there are fine adjusters on the handlebars.

This bike arrived about 4 days after ordering it on Amazon. It came reasonably well packed, though I could imagine a lot of damage from a careless delivery truck. I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of these were damaged in shipping. It's just perfect for riding the trails that are in the mountains where we go camping. I did not want and did not expect a $1200 mountain bike, and I got what I expected.

When properly adjusted, the ride is better than I expected for under $160.

This is an excellent bike for $150. Worth every penny. Assembly took a few hours to tweek everything perfectly such as brakes and shifters. Next assembly would take about an hour if you have all tools and know what you are doing. Assembly instructions are not the best and could be simplified in 3 pages.

OK, I was a little cautious based on some of the other reviews here...things falling apart, tyres popping etc etc, and I weigh 210 pounds, 20 pounds over the 190 specified.

However the bike took minimal assembly and was good to go in a matter of about 30 mins from unpacking the box, and that included trying to find tools (there aren't any supplied but I was living with a mechanic freind who has pretty much everything in the back of his truck. To quote Fast and the Furious "If you can't find the right tool in this garage (truck) you don't belong any where near a car ( or bike in this case)!

Well as soon as I took if for a spin and got up to speed yes...you guesed it...the rear tyre blew out on me, the tyre shredded and was quickly followed by the innertube exploding through the split in the side wall. Was this a problem with my weight or the tyre or a faulty manufacturing? Apparently not. I walked it to the local bike shop and in the course of spending $30 on a new tyre and inner tube I was shown that the rear brake pad was too high on the rim...so what had happened was the rubber on rubber when I applied the brake had cuased immese friction and heat and the resultant pop.

Since that incident I've been riding to work on it from home in Mammoth Lakes up the road to the village, getting the bike park shuttle to the mountain and returning via the moderate "Downtown" trail on which the bike has thus far performed to all expectations.
