Re: 1998 Huffy Catalyst

I bought a new part for my Huffy, Nuke Proof Carbon cassettes.
  She needs to loose a little weight, that GT overdrive sprocket has gotta go.
I'm going to be be trying to run an 11t out back, if not than 12t for sure. I will combo that with the factory Technique spider with a light-weight aluminum chain ring(in the 30t-36t range depending on rear cog size), and aluminum chain ring bolts.

If anyone is interested in that GT Sprocket for their Technique crank contact me, the spindle hole has been enlarged and will only fit the Technique Crank, has very nice anodized finish, $20shipped.

To those of you who are curious: NO, the bike is not for sale.
And as pictured it weighs 20lbs 2oz...I'd like to see 19.00 or lower eventually. (humm..let's see, throw in some Ti spokes with the hubs, latex tubes, Eastern Ti bars...Yea, I think 19.00 will happen)

Check em' out!

Re: 1998 Huffy Catalyst

Man, I love these things.
Over here in Australia Huffy pretty much only ever sold walmart type bikes, really low quality and cheap prices.
I always wanted one of these just to the reaction and the looks on peoples faces when I rocked up with a sweet HUFFY!

this info. was posted on the other catalyst listed here by another member, but as he said, they are repainted mongoose frames. mongoose sold out the last of some of their stock to huffy. the solution was another one mongoose sold to huffy and it became one of their other aluminum race frames, the primus or enigma I think.

Re: 1998 Huffy Catalyst

Yes, the Huffy is a re-badged mongoose, but what else is lesser known is that the mongoose stealth was a a sub-contracted production piece,
meaning it's not really then even a mongoose(just financially funded, designed, promoted, and distributed through them), when it was made by another manufacturer of MTB stuff. Mongoose did not have the experience with carbon fiber(in the 90's), so they out-sourced the work to those who already had success with carbon fiber products.
I don't recall who had the contract, but I wanna say it was Mountain Cycle, but I could be wrong on that. Either way, despite who the MTB company was, the fact remains that it was made by another manufacturer, and our perception of what's what in the world is deluded by our own brand-washing.  I.E. is it a good bike?,...must not be, if it says Huffy on it. That's the common mentality.

One of these days I gotta get a few done with it and update my pics.
So many things been waiting for install. Just got a Chris King headset to go on with the new F1.
Can't wait to see this back together!

Re: 1998 Huffy Catalyst

The FMF powerbomb pictured on as now(3/14/16) were sold off right after I got the now Bombshell F1.
The T-1000 will be going back on, built up with the Nuke Proof Hubs and Titanium spokes.
