    I really enjoy it. For the price, you can't beat it.

    Pros
    Durable, shifts smooth, not too heavy, handles really well on loops and drops.

    Cons
    shifts good until rear shock loses air and this happens more than it should. 3rd has to be held for a second before it shifts.

    a great bike for the price, as it was last years model i got it for just above half its original price, thoroughly pleased so far.

    Pros
    my first dual suspension bike and i'm loving it so far, good suspension without much in the way of pedal bob and great gears and brakes. grips well with the kenda excavator tyres. has given me a lot more confidence.

    Cons
    underside water bottle mount means i have to take my camelbak even on short rides if i want a drink, otherwise dirty bottle. not much in the way of seat height adjustment.

    complete satisfaction for me with this bike, It climbs very well atleast for me and bombs DH even better great AM bike. picked mine up for 1200$ msrp was 20 or 2100...

    Pros
    almost everything,comes with a fox float RP2 in the rear which is great

    Cons
    eventhough it handles everything I've thrown at so far I would be happier with a fox fork in the front as oppsed to the Marzochi 44tst2, so it's no really a con i don't think.

    Good all-around bike for the price. Capable of riding advanced trails & descents, but also makes for a good beginner bike. Would recommend for any beginner, or seasoned expert. An enjoyable bike for every rider

    Pros
    I picked up the 2009 Teocali Comp (blue/white) for $999.99 @ Performance Bicycle. For the price, you cant get a better bike. Shifters & dérailleurs are smooth, and quick. Bulletproof hydraulic disc brakes, and near perfect gear ratios.

    Cons
    After your first ride, it never cleans up like new..

    This is a very good trail bike. It will go over rocks and tree roots very nicely. It climbs well and really goes down rough hills with confidence.

    Pros
    Climbs much better than I thought it would. I can get up rocky hills better with this than with my hardtail. Rear suspension is great with very little bob. Sram shifters & rear derailleur work great, even though they are not top of the line. Hydraulic brakes are great.

    Cons
    Heavy. Manitou Splice fork is just ok. I wish it had a water bottle cage within the frame. My water bottle gets all dirty because it is under the frame.

    My 2005 Teocali Super has seen 1800 miles to date and I have no complaints about the Mongoose. I bought it off ebay for $1300. I've been smiling ever since. Mongoose is making a strong comeback with a solid line of bikes.

    Pros
    Great components for price. Great rear suspension, even while braking and accelerating. Good geometry

    Cons
    very slight bob while pedaling
