Description
Breeze through mountain trails and muddy paths with the Mongoose 26 inch mountain bike Rip up the trails with the Mongoose XR250 26 inch men's mountain bike. The gear system is easily adjustable, so you can change the tension to better match the conditions on the trail. Shift through 21 speeds smoothly and precisely with the assistance of a Shimano rear derailleur for fine-tuned adjustments on the fly. The 4-bar alloy dual suspension frame features a Zoom Fork that smooths out rough riding conditions. And you get precision stopping power with a Promax disc brake in the front and a linear pull rear brake. This Mongoose 26 inch mountain bike features Aero swift black anodized alloy rims that provide greater durability without adding substantially to the bike's overall weight, which makes it easier to maneuver around tight corners and wide turns alike. Lean into curves with confidence as the MTB riser bars give you a better handle on your bike's trajectory.

The Mongoose XR-250 is an entry-level mens mountain bike with very low pricing. It has an all-mountain geometry and dual suspension, and is ideal for those who want to ride moderate trails on a budget. Main features are a Mozo M30 front suspension and coil rear, an aluminum frame, and SRAM twist shifters. The brakes are a front ProMax disc brake paired with a rear linear pull. Mongoose proprietary tires are coupled with AERO black anodized alloy wheels, as well as an alloy three-piece crank with plastic pedals. This bike has a total of 21 speeds, and is fairly heavy, weighing in at 40 lbs. Features Entry-level pricing Dual suspension, Mozo M30 front shock Aluminum frame Anodized AERO rims 21 speeds Mongoose tires Shimano TX-30 rear derailleur SRAM twist shifters ProMax front disc brake Linear pull rear brake Ideal for beginner trail riders ... PROS: (1) Functions very well as a commuters bike - smooth ride and comfortable seat are ideal for frequent travelling (2) Suspension is very high-quality for the price point - reacts differently to street and mountain terrain to ensure sufficient handling (3) Overall construction is very sturdy/reliable - rims and back spring can withstand a considerable amount of force ... CONS: (1) Derailleur will likely require user adjustment - stock shifting style is fairly jarring/abrupt (2) Very heavy for a mountain-style bike - some users may find it difficult to own and operate a ~40 lb. unit (3) User assembly is more difficult than expected - inexperienced owners should look for a pre-assembled unit (4) Not built for long-lasting functionality - most stock components will break or malfunction within approximately one year of regular use

3 Star Review     

Strengths: VERY COMFORTABLE. SURPRISINGLY FAST. LONG WHEELBASE AIDS CLIMBING. GOOD COMMUTER.

Weakness: TOP GEAR COULD BE HIGHER. HEAVY - IF YOU CARE. SEATPOLE A BIT SHORT. Some side-to-side back wheel movement.

I've only has the beast for 16 days, or about 160 km (100 miles). But it has performed well both over commuting and my pleasant little off-road afternoon detour. I haven't taken it up the hill of wheelstands yet, but I expect an easier time in keeping the front wheel on or near the ground than the previous incumbent. I would still expect bottom gear to be unuseable on this hill for this reason. I weigh 105 kg (230lbs) and am 5'10" tall. Nothing has bent or broken yet, though the back spring pivot seems to need too much tightening. I do tend to be gentle on bikes, though in mid or low range up the steep stuff I do generate a lot of chain tension. The front disc need a bit of bedding in, then it works well. Top gear is a bit short, but is good for 32 or more kph (20 mph) at a cadence of about 85. The cluster is nice for my commuting hills (3 hrs/week) with close gaps from 2nd to 5th. This gives a lot of choice in mid-range. Interestingly, starting from rest in a high gear can be difficult as pedal movement is absorbed in suspension deflection as my weight settles onto the bike. Either start in a lower gear or avoid bumps in the first foot or 2 of forward movement. As the bottom bracket is mounted on the swing-arm with the rider's foot being mounted to the rider, there is a theoretical basis for this. I am getting used to it, doing a lot of starts in traffic in H2. It has some promise as a traffic-light squirter, if you like lots of quick gearchanges. Yes, it's heavy. 22 kg ? I haven't weighed it. Nor do I care, as long as I can get the front wheel above my head to hook it on the rack at work. Off-road, it suits my style. It is comfortable over the rocks and roots. The pedals do hang low, but surely the rider has to adapt. I have been watching my pedal position off-road since childhood. I like my suspension soggy, though I have been adjusting up the preload on the back spring. Sand use is a little uncertain, possibly because of high tyre pressures, though the widely-spaced nobbies on the Kenda Klaw tyres may be adding to directional instability. The quality could be a little better. For $450 Australian we can't expect miracles, but even so I have had to adjust the front derailleur and the disc caliper, as well as a lot of tightening of a rear spring pivot. All in all, I like it. Here's hoping it lasts longer than the last one did, though the last one was a cheapy from a department store. No Hat Al
