    Found this in my dads Garage, hanging since 2000

    From what I found:


    1999 Mongoose SX 6.7
    Mountain bike, front & rear suspension
    Mountain Mix components
    RST 281, 2.5" travel fork

    Five minutes later:



    Any comments, tips? I doubt I will be selling this one as it was my dads, but it does seem a bit small, the sticker says it has a 28 inch stand over. This will be my first decent (I think) mountain bike since I was 10. Been riding my road bike but I've always wanted to try some trails after watching some videos.

    Maybe I'm missing something, but what's the difference in the two photos?
    Also, kudos on the Tour de Cure!
    My mom is Type 1 Diabetic, so I've seen that disease firsthand.
    Oh, and welcome to the dirt!

    My Twitter, I guess.

    I took off the warped fenders, the reflectors, and put on an extra cf bottle cage, pumped up the tires.

    There's a blue air hose in the 2nd picture.

    BTW, I'd be more interested in what's under that car cover than that old bike.

    I remember that 'Goose. I wanted one back in the late 90's. Back when mongoose wasn't yet a walmart staple.

    This one is pre-walmart, still made in taiwan unlike the 2000's made in china.

    If you're going to hit the trails with it, swap out the semi-slick tires for some knobbies.
