Specifically a 2002 Mongoose Menace, just a cheapo 20” bike. I’d post the picture but I’m too new here still

I feel your pain on the lack of ability to post images. Happy hunting!

Well that was a bust. Made my 10 post quota to check messages, turns out it was all spam trying to scam me into sending an email. Like obvious spam messages trying to trick me. “Yes we have 2002 Mongoose Menace we are looking to sell a set. Email here at blahblah” yeah right. Yikes

Welcome, from SE Wisconsin!

Someone in the vintage bikes subofurm helped me find it based only on the description. Mine was a Sears Free Spirit, but they abbreviated it to sound tougher "FS250" hahaha.

Seems like they go for $300 now; too rich for nostalgia and this level of performance. (considering I rarely go offroad)
