  • Good Bike For The Buck

    Dec 9, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Cheap, Good for Light Riding
    Cons: Have to constantly tune up.

    Summary: A few months ago, I was thinking about how I could save money on transportation. There is no bus service in the small town that I live in. I decided to by a bicycle instead of driving so much. I decided I didn't want the most expensive bike out there. I ... read more

    Pros: Aluminum frame, 22 speeds, Quick release systems, light Weight
    Cons: Expensive look makes hard to leave unattended.
    Handle bars limit accessories
    rear mount kickstand

    Summary: Mongoose has bike making down pat.  I picked up my xr-100 at a bike shop in used condition.  On the test ride I knew I had little to worry about, that was 3 years ago.  This bike takes me dependably on my daily commute to and from work ... read more

    Pros: Lightweight, 45lbs. helps offroading, trailriding.  Aluminum alloy frame, light and strong.
    Cons: Uncomfortable seat.  Aluminum crank arm threads can easily be damaged.  Front shock unadjustable, weak.

    Summary: Having recieved the bike as a gift, I had no say whether I wanted this bike or not, but i'm glad I got it.  I'm not sure of other versions, but mine is a mens' (adult 14 and up) two-tone silver/purple with 26" wheels.  The front wheel is ... read more

    Pros: Nice Shamano Shifter/Gears, excellent construction quality, well balanced bike for the money.
    Cons: Front Fork Spring is non-adjustable. Weak rims. Not ready to ride out of store.

    Summary: I just picked this bike up about a week ago. I've ridden it every day since and I am very impressed. This is my first full suspension bike. I have ridden mostly BMX style bikes in the past. This bike is not a world class downhill bike, nor does it ... read more

    Pros: It has a very smooth ride period. The shocks and spring hold up great.
    Cons: The only thing I didn't like was that the brake cord rubs your bake leg.

    Summary: What really brought my attention to the bike was the outstanding shiny, red frame. Then as I looked ... read more

    Pros: Low cost, Aluminum frame, full suspension

  • Better than expected!

    May 22, 2003 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Great Price, perfect beginner mountain bike, excellent parts.
    Cons: Seat post too long for people with shorter legs, tighten all parts before riding.

    Summary: My wife and I wanted to start biking on hiking and bike trails near our home. But my faithful and solid GT Pro-freestyle tour BMX bike was a bit out of my age range now and my wife did not want to be seen with me riding my BMX on the local trails or in ... read more

  • Mongoose XR-100 (performance at a great price)

    Apr 24, 2003 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Dual Suspension, Shimano Revo twist 21-speed drivetrain, and the sleek/strong design of 7005 Alloy Frame.
    Cons: Overall Weight: Somewhat heavier compared to your more expensive brands. Seat can be uncomfortable.

    Summary: I've owned the XR-100 for over 3 weeks now and had no problems with it at all. However, I respect what Flanderflop had to say about the XR-100 and the tips he gave even though they didn't pertain to my situation. The XR-100 I purchased ... read more

  • XR-100, a great bike!

    Mar 8, 2003 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Nice grip handlebars and pedals, sleek design and good shock absorption.
    Cons: Seat may be too narrow and cause discomfort for some riders.

    Summary: I purchased this bike yesterday and already I can see I made a great choice. The aluminum frame is lightweight allowing faster speeds but tough enough ride down a bumpy mountain road just fine. The shock absorption is good but not outstanding ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Cheap
    Cons: Not assembled properly, cheap

    Summary: I spend a good deal of time on bikes, so some people may consider me a bit of a bike snob, but I don’t hold it against people if they purchase a cheap bicycle from Wal-Mart, especially if it is for their kids who will out grow it quickly, or if they ... read more

    Pros: Strong frame design/Great brakes/Good suspension/strong crank/Good street ride
    Cons: seat/shifting/neck/derailier/Not strong enough for extreme MTB!

    Summary: I been beating on mountain bikes as a hobby for 15+ years. This bike only LOOKS aggressive. The strongest part of the bike I can say is the framework. Forks are okay too just non adjustable. The seat can send you to your chiropractor faster than ... read more

    Pros: Excellent gearing, remarkable suspension, looks cool.
    Cons: Seat hurts, tires don't hold air long.

    Summary: I use it as little as weekly, as much as daily. My wifey bought it for me and I needed to adjust the seat and handle bars, as well as a little adjustment to the brakes. But that can be expected since they have teenagers putting these things together at ... read more
