2012 Mongoose Kos Kruiser 26
This is 1 of 12 KOS Kruisers that were given away by Mongoose in 2011 - and it's Maiden Voyage was RAGBRAI XXXIX!
On June 14, 2011, FedEx inexplicably delivered a large box to my door with the words "mongoose" printed on it.
Was I drunk-shopping on ebay again?
Then I remembered a message I got on the museum about a week before and it said I was going get something that "might make RAGBRAI little easier."
I thought it was going to be a backpack or something but inside the box was the brand new 2012 Mongoose KOS Kruiser and a note:
"Hey R.D! Well, guess who I work for? You passed the "awesome dude who is a great brand ambassador" test. Hopefully, this will serve you well @ RAGBRAI and thereafter. As you may have heard/seen/read online, this bike is one of twelve with these parts plus color combo, so enjoy!
Happy trails, Martin Wendt Global BMX Product Manager"
I truly expected to wake up at any moment but I'm happy to report after 134 days and counting, the dream hasn't ended yet!
The first ride I took on this bike was across the entire state of Iowa on RAGBRAI!
Infinite thanks to Martin Wendt and everybody at Mongoose!
