Mongoose XR 200

This is one awesome bike for the money. If you are looking for something affordable and rugged that won't cost an arm and a leg to maintain or repair this is the best deal I could find:















Specs include:

Aluminum swing link, alloy dual-suspension frame
ZOOM fork
21-speed SRAM MRX Pro/Shimano TX-30
Promax disc brake with rear alloy V-Brake
Alloy levers
Mongoose Alloy-forged three-piece crankset
36-spoke black andonized alloy rims
Kickstand
Quick-release seat

I own this bike and have punished it for quite some time and it handles everything I throw at it. If you do have a problem Mongoose has the best customer service I have ever had the pleasure to deal with. Just let them know what is wrong and they will ship out whatever you need, no questions asked. If you are looking to get into the sport for under $200 and get the most out of your riding experience without breaking the bank then this is the best deal on the net!

Have any questions? Hit me up!

Ride Safe!

I have never seen anyone so happy about a kickstand. Personally I could do without it.

Sorry, I should have been more specific. Weight of the bike?

I think you are looking for the "Weight Weenies" thread. This bike isn't carbon fiber but it doesn't seem heavy at all to me.

I like my bikes to weight right around 30 lbs or less. I'm not trying to get an all carbon fiber, sub 22 lbs bike. Just trying to stay away from the 35+ lbs bikes.

Shipping weight on it is 42 lbs. *shrugs*

I don't think anyone buying this bike is all that concerned with weight, its more of a "get what you can" at a given price point.

And that's fine. Sometimes you find a suprising deal.

Does that include the box and all the packing materials? Like I siad it doesn't seem like it is that heavy. I may need to find some truck scales and weigh in.

The way I've weighed mine, I just tighten the rear brake adjuster until the wheel won't spin then ballance the bike on a regular bathroom scale. It won't be perfect, but it'll be a good ball park.

Its the shipping weight, so I'd imagine that DOES include the packing materials... I can't imagine the packing materials accounting for much weight though.

Looks like he just pulled the cheesy decals off.

There's apparently a difference(obvious frame differences) between the XR 200 and the XR-200, LOL, don't ask me why they didn't change up the names a bit more?...
