Re: mongoose serial number help

Oops, I meant to say 2002 - 2004.  I am basing that off of the lower routed brake cable since later models were routed on the upper side.

Re: mongoose serial number help

hi thanks for your reply , not to make my self look thick but could you explain to me what you mean by ,  I am basing that off of the lower routed brake cable since later models were routed on the upper side. do you mean where the brakes are situated on the wheel and attached to the frame or are you on about the cable its self . and does the serial number help with the year , i put it in the first post .

thanks again pepper

Re: mongoose serial number help

What I was refering to is the mounts for the brake cable.  If you look into the images of other Mongoose Menace bikes, you will see that the later years have the brake cable mounted to the top tube and earlier models have it mounted to the lower tube.  Unfortunetely (for me) the serial number does not help but that is not to say that someone else out therewont have any info on it. I am comfortable with the old school serial numbers but anything this new.

I based my conclusion strictly off of photos in the museum.  I hope it helps!

Re: mongoose serial number help

By what the SN says:

"HAMMFO3072"

I would go with 2003, but Iam not 100%, so check the Museum Bikes to see if it Matches...
