You'd think that with a frame that tall he'd be able to adjust the seat for proper leg extension!

No no he should put the bb and crank one frame lower so he would'nt have to stoop as much if he raised the seat. Pluss he would be able to mount easier too.

I'd have to put some more air in that back tire before climbing up that stack ~ imagine the surprise you'd get trying to turn when that tire folds!

I like how there's a freestyle rotor still on the neck yet the cables from the brakes just simply disapear somewhere into the frame welded below the Mongoose...

That's some of the finest outdoorware this side of Florida retirement communities. (see Seinfeld reruns)
