What happen to Mongoose?
In 1998 I was purchased a Mongoose NX 7.1. At the time, I was not familiar with mountains bikes as I had previously only owned a low end Specialized. Soon after I bought the bike, people began telling me I could have bought a Mongoose at X-Mart. I was flabbergasted that I had paid $600 for a bike that people perceived as an X-Mart bike. I have now had the bike for 6 years and have never had any problems with it, although I have upgraded several comps.
All the late 90's reviews I have read give Mongoose high marks, but of course now they are no better than a Huffy. Where did Mongoose go wrong?
