The long-suffering wife, ( who knows how to do these things online ) ordered me a green Mongoose Beast yesterday . I think it will be a lot easier than the other bikes to ride in the soft sand. I have been researching the common assembly finds and trying not to get carried away by the tons of upgrades some are doing. < yet, lol > tom

I'm having trouble telling from this picture and the one on Walmart's site: what kind of stem/headset does it have, threadless or threaded?

OK, does anyone else have a problem with the rear wheel? No matter what I do the tire touches either the chain or the seat stay...

A year later and I ordered a Framed Minnesota 1. $800, comes with a spare wheel set in 29er size. Disk brakes and 1x9. wont know if it is a good deal or not for another two weeks. Still keeping the walgoose as a parade cruiser and shop bike, the origin 8 basket has turned out to be great for hardware store runs just to get a box of screws or one more tube of glue. Just want a little more gear range for my old man legs when on the trails. I'll update when I get a ride in.

I still look on walmarts site occasionally at those things thanks to you.. I think if they ever did a disc version at 300 I'd snap it up.
