Re: Stranger Things Edition Mongoose

I was going to buy one for Mama or one of the kids, but couldn't get out town before they sold out any where near by. Closest store is like 85 miles away. So, I built up an 88 Mongoose and had most of the parts anyways. It's nothing special but a cool little bike. Kinda like the no brakes look so put some wheels with coaster, figuring it would be easier for them as well. Now seems I ride it more than them, but can't get used to the coaster brake. Almost biffed it couple times. lol My little boy is only 5 and its to big for him. He has a 16" DiamondBack we are getting together for when he is ready.

Re: Stranger Things Edition Mongoose

Well, turns out they (were) available again for a (brief) period on the Target site. That's why I started that topic, thought maybe someone who missed out could beat the flippers. Hopefully someone had success.

Yep, still not in stock at Target.

But, the price has come way down on Ebay

Re: Stranger Things Edition Mongoose

I was not going to buy one of the repopped Gooses....was gonna stay true to my 80’s roots.  That being said, it’s Cyber Monday, 15% off online orders and free shipping from Target.  That brings the Goose to just under $200 shipped to my home or anyone’s for that matter.
PSA concluded!

Nobody ever believes me when I say the frame is well built. It’s hands down the best welded department store frame you can buy for under $200. Put a $100 in decent parts on it and there isn’t another new bike out there for under $300 that could touch it.

Re: Stranger Things Edition Mongoose

This bike has it's place! The flippers have taken it away from all the kids that should be getting one under the tree at Christmas. It's for all the 10 year old little Johnny's and little Sarah's that want a cool bike, maybe like dad (the collector) has but the one that dad has is too nice for little J & S to ride down the street and play at the park. You know the bike to jump a few curbs, ride over to your buddies house and oops, leave out in the rain. You know, like alot of us did when we were kids. It's a department store bike but something that's actually made a little nicer than the huffy junk. No, it's not meant to be a quality bicycle store grade machine like we all have or collect. Why couldn't the flippers just let it be just what it was supposed to be. Why can't all the haters just let it be what it's supposed to be. Let little Johnny & Sarah have the better made and cool bike to just ride and leave out in the damn rain!
