Did my very first century this past weekend from Washington, NC to Nags Head, NC on this. It's a Mongoose trail bike, that I did a bunch of mods to. Road tires, more comfy saddle, upgraded shifters, and a few other things. Basically turned it into a thicker framed commuter bike. My buddy and I did this ride as a gift to my daughter to show her anything is possible, and also to raise money and awareness for Stand Against Suicide. It was a great experience, and very cool for us to show people you don't have to spend thousands of dollars on a space age bike to pull of a century!
