Re: 1996 Mongoose Aftershock

If you don't want to build it, I will be selling one that has been repaired (shock mount cracked) and I have the same answer pro fork too...I will be selling it pretty cheap, PM me if you are interested...That frame is only NOS once...I have a NOS Haro monocoque frame that I don't plan on building...to build or not to build...It's a tough question for sure...

Re: 1996 Mongoose Aftershock

did you ever build your aftershock yet ? mine is still sitting while i slowly collect nos parts for it , a buddy is hooking me up with yellow nos z rims laced to nos mohaks , thats about as far as i have gotten on it . i was wondering what the top tube length is on yours ? i noticed yours has the shorter gusset under the down tube and mine has the longer gusset . im wondering if there is any other differences in the frames than the gusset's . check mine out , its under my bikes .

Re: 1996 Mongoose Aftershock

Massive longshot here given the time frame since your post, but MonocoqueMike, if you didn't sell yours I'd be interested!

Raced it for half a season, then i got injured.

Re: 1996 Mongoose Aftershock

This thing is sweet. Only 300 made? I picked up one at Pawn Shop one time for $150.00. Yes the frame was cracked,but it had them 20''suspension Pro  Forks on it with a sweet Blue Color FSA 3pc set-up on it. I rod it one time befor I stripped off the parts. It also had a blue FOX Shock on the rear suspension.

Re: 1996 Mongoose Aftershock

Am I the only one who sees that this just doesn't make sense? The pivot point is in a spot that basically just creates a bend in the middle of the frame itself, not a true suspension of the back end. I understandT that they put the pivot before the bottom bracket so that the chain tension stayed the same while pivoting, but that also means that YOU are on the back end of the pivot along with the back wheel, and so you still move up and down with the back wheel, so how does that actually create any shock absorption?? It would be like if the seat of your car was connected to the axles of a car...every time the car hit a bump, you would move up with the bump.

I understand what you are saying you don't go up and down with the back wheel. If you were standing on pegs off the rear axle you would be but since the frame pivots at the BB you do not suffer from this.
