Decent cruiser,  report back how it rides.

I still prefer a used bike on a good deal, easy to do under $150 with a cleanup and a few new parts.  But you never know what youre gonna get until its torn down.

Ive been looking at low seat (women) alum mountain bikes lately, Non Suspension.   New spokes on the rear to center the hub,  single speed it with bmx bars,  careful chain length set up and new tires.   Could be a good light beater cruiser for under $100.   BMX style fork kicks the price up.

My local Craigslist is full of mid nineties Treks and whatnot for $300-$400 and other super low end stuff for over $100. This seemed like the most cost effective option. Long gone are the days of affordable stuff popping up.

Re: I Bought A Walgoose...

I need to find my spare Tektro v brake. Saying the stockone is garbage is an insult to garbage. I had the lever, seat, post, and clamp in my parts bin and bought the brake cable since the stock one was too short to use with the Shimano lever. Rode it for a few minutes this afternoon and it seems solid. I will be removing the reflectors when I swap out the brake. Still debating on what to do with the stickers.

Re: I Bought A Walgoose...

Looks good for a budget cruiser and what you have laying around. Can always upgrade a little as you go. Better than nothing and not riding at all. smile


It's yours. Do what you want with it smile

I have trashed waaaayyy too many mongooses to have anything good to say about them. Sorry but I haven’t met a mongoose that can withstand 235 lbs riding it over stairs, jumps rails etc. They just don’t build them like they used to. I love my nutsack too much to risk riding one.

Re: I Bought A Walgoose...

And I really am not trying to down your purchase, to each their own but for what you paid for that bike new, you could have bought a midschool or even new school bike for the same price in great condition that could take more punishment.

Re: I Bought A Walgoose...

Got this on CL for $80, was covered in overspray and the back wheel had a nasty wobble. http://uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/258026/img_07435cd6daa4ac.jpg

Re: I Bought A Walgoose...

Yeah, hi-ten frame. Got it for my brother so I could have my X24 back. Sold it to him for a hundo after I put a solid day into bringing it back to life.

I check it at least twice a day, the good ones don't last long.
