Hey I was curious if anyone has ridden the new Mongoose Black Diamond Triple? I have found one I can get a great deal on and was wondering if anyone has any experience with this bike. I know it is new, but the parts spec seems pretty nice and even though its a Mongoose, it looks pretty solid. Any comments or info would be appreciated! Thanx

I was wondering the same thing!!
Looks to be pretty good value for money and as you said it has a good spec, but maybe cos its a Mongoose it isn't cool at all.
I remember the days when everyone wanted to have a Mongoose, they were the schizzle when i was a kid!

Yea, that was my only concern, was the fact that its a Mongoose, but I feel like if they are going to try to get into the serious free ride market, they wouldnt make a piece of crap. I figure the name running down the downtube will steer people away, but I am still contemplating getting one.If I do i'll fill everyone in on its performance. I guess if the frame is junk, I could always put the components on something tight :) .

I say go for it, all of the components are top quality. Like you said, if the frame is junk, transfer it all because the rest is good.

Check out last month's Decline magazine; they gave it a very favorable review. IMHO, they tend to know what they are talking about in their reviews, unlike some mags.

I think that mongoose should come up with a subcompany for their high end mountain bikes, this way it can have a cool name so you won't have the little kids come up to you saying that they have a Mongoose too
