What Is A Fat Tire Bike?
A bike that is built for all terrain brew ha, ha-ing! The tires are big and plump; up to 4-inch thick and create a cushiony ride that will put the fun back into your trail or everyday riding.
The Mongoose Dolomite Is Ready To Be Set Loose
Join The Fat Bike Craze
Wow, did you see what that guy is riding? What was that thing? The tires are huge! Watch as he glides over sand dirt and snow. See the glee he has as he bounces over embankments and boings over rocks in his way. The Mongoose Dolomite has arrived to save you from bike doldrums and will put a smile on the faces of all you pass by. Built with 4-inch tires (earning the name fat) on supersized beach cruiser frame, there is plenty of clearance to make it rideable on virtually any terrain. Fat tires are all the rage and the Dolomite is a great bike to add to your stable and have a little fun on. There is nothing you can't do on a Mongoose and almost nowhere you can't go on the Dolomite.
How It All Began
Founded in 1974 in a Southern California garage, Mongoose was born when founder Skip Hess designed the MotoMag One wheel to make BMX bikes stronger with a rad new look. From there, BMX riding turned from an underground hobby to a full-blown phenomenon, with Mongoose's innovative products continually forging the sport's exciting new path. Mongoose riders dominated the BMX race circuit in the 1980s, while the company continued to push bicycle boundaries by pioneering the first wave of full-suspension mountain bike frames. Today, Mongoose continues to create products that push riders to thrilling new limits, whether it's ripping through gnarly mountain trails, stomping tricks in the park or owning the urban jungle. From reinventing the wheel to our current line of BMX, mountain and pavement bikes, Mongoose is synonymous with pure, unadulterated performance that always keeps the party going.

Following the gentleman's advice I located the Mongoose on Amazon and decided to indulge. I also took Amazon's "people who bought this item also purchased..." advice and grabbed the Sunlight Cruiser Retro Handlebar and the Sunlight Cloud-9 Suspension Cruiser Saddle. Although I believed I ordered a black version of the Mongoose, to match my new Electra, somewhere in the process it was changed to dark blue. The bike arrived today in a single box, damaged in three places including one significantly dog-eared corner with metal immediately behind it which made me a bit nervous. After unpacking the unit I confirmed that fortunately no damage had occurred correlating to the box damage, and after a close inspection I found only 3 or 4 very minor scratches. Considering the condition of the box I was quite relieved.
I took my time putting the bike together, including the installation of the new handlebars and seat, all of which took about 90 minutes. I had to install the handlebar three times, mostly due to my own lack of attention, but also because the rear brake cable was just barely long enough to accommodate the new handlebar when turning hard left. This is not a defect of the bike or cable, just a challenge for the addition of the longer handlebar. By adjusting the angle of the handlebar and brake lever a bit I was able to get a good fit. The remainder of the project went very well including the test ride which as some of the other reviews mentioned, drew some attention from the neighbors.
I made this purchase after having read almost all of the many reviews. After receiving my own bike and putting it together with the simple modifications noted, I have to say that I am completely satisfied and would recommend the process to anyone interested in accomplishing the same outcome. I anticipate adjusting the brakes and derailleur tension after a few miles, as is the case with any bike, but all parts fit nicely, all threads were good, all brackets adjusted easily and I experienced no problems in any aspect of putting the bike together. In regard to the negative comments expressed by others: Yes, it is a heavy bike. If you want something lighter you can expect to be lighter in the wallet as well. Yes, the stock seat was a bit narrow so if you are interested in a cruiser with style that is easy on the back-side, as was the case for me, buy a different seat. For the fit - I am 6'3" and weigh between 210 and 215 pounds and just turned 59, and I have no problem with the comfort level of the bike or proper leg extension and distance from the saddle to the ground. My toes don't hit the front tire when turning (even if I don't have the pedal in the proper position under the ball of my foot) and the pedals are wide enough to keep me from losing my footing. If interested in a more luxurious ride, take a look at the three-wheelers with a basket, but I personally prefer the fun I'm having on this one. Yes, upgrades of virtually any component are possible, but for the approximate $250 I have invested, I am quite pleased with the results-
Manage your expectations and be realistic, this bike is a lot of fun, has some great basic features, but is not on the upper-end of component quality. Being heavy it will not be a power house and despite its fat tires, it will still be a bit challenging in sand or mud, although some flotation is provided. Don't expect it to perform like a high-dollar bike, enjoy the savings and have fun!
The best part is that it got me active again after a couple of years of little physical activity.
