    Is this Mongoose a decent starter cross bike?

    I'm looking to try cross racing and found this bike used.

    It is a 1996 with RSX STI (3 x 7) components and Mavic rims.

    Would this make a good starter cross bike? Can anyone tell me the model?

    It is hard to tell from the picture what type of brakes it has. I don't see any cross brake levers on it.

    Probably a Omega model

    Says it came with 700x28's, so you could possibly fit some 700x30 or maybe 32 cross tires on there.

    I wouldn't worry about the cross brake levers. You should be good without them.

    This bike might work fine for cross, but I don't think I'd use it for that if I didn't already own it. If you want to race cross and don't have a bike yet, look for a cross bike. You'll be much happier.
