    Hi there,

    I live in Northern California & I enjoy riding my bike. It may not be a $1,000.00 bike or even close to $500.00 with all the bells & whistles but it sure feels good to me :) The make & model is a Mongoose XR250 ... I plan on adding a few newer parts to the bike but so far it is a gem to me & I can not complain.

    Quick review on my bike

    Pros: Very light weight, Nice Rapid Fire shifters , Strong front Promax disk brake , Nice beefy mud tires ,

    Cons: The Rapid Fire shifter needs or should have been tuned better from the company. Ugly mud fender & well some what hard to load on the THULE 963 - Spare Me bike rack that i have with out messing up the paint.

    Comments: This is a great bike for someone that can not fork out $500.00 dollars & up. This bike works well for me I am 6ft tall & 230LBS & the bike is great.. I would talk to your LBS(Local Bike Shop) to see what low budge upgrades are out there for this bike just to make it a bit more BEEFY enjoy ;)
