1999 Mongoose Menace 24

1999 Mongoose Menace 24

picked up the frame off of CL for cheap then dumped buckets of $$ into it for the wife. The only thing on the bike that is original is the frame. 100% rebuilt from the finish up.

The frame was picked up off of Craigslist for cheap. I had this powdercoated white after it was blasted to remove the chrome and rust, mostly rust. The wife mentioned that she did not want a single speed bike so I had a Shimano Nexus 3 speed hub laced to a SE double wall rim. I did this for Christmas for my wife and was concerned she would not like it so I did my best to make it "pretty" with as many pink and purple parts as possible. The parts are as follows:
Fly bikes Pink bar ends
Haro purple BMX bars
Paul's love lever (black)
Shimano Nexus 3 speed twist shifter
neon pink brake housing
Dirt Bros stem
Cane Creek sealed headset
Diamond Back forks picked up at LBS for $15 (didn't even need to cut them!)
SE Racing front hub and both rims
FMF Powerstroke cranks and sealed BB
Odyssey Trailmix pedals in purple/black
FMD hollow pin chain
Vintage pink mongoose decals
Custom JENN-Ed decal
Shimano Nexus 3 speed internally geared hub w/coaster brake
Paul's Moto brake
DK seatclamp w/Pacman and ghosts (only one I could find to fit the seat tube)
Cheapo seatpost
FMF Team saddle w/hollow titanium rails
Purple valve caps
Maxxis Holy Roller tires

Re: 1999 Mongoose Menace 24

Thanks. I used an American to Euro bb adapter. The cranks I picked up cheaply had a Euro BB and I picked up the adapter cheap too, so I went that route.

If you want to keep it simple, go w/an American BB.

Good luck!

It rarely comes out of the garage. I ride it more than her. When I have to move things around, I tool around in front of the condo. and go through the gears. The rear is really heavy due to the 3-speed hub, but it is a very smooth ride.
