here it is. my beloved retro mongoose iboc comp. Bought for the princly sum of £40 from a little bike shop on narborough road in leicester as a cheap scoot in 1998 after my motorbike got stolen. it is basically bone stock apart from 10 things which have been changed for nessecity.

1, rode the original araya cv-7 rims indto the ground and wore out the sidewalls. Now has black Araya RM-20s (rebuilt the wheels infront of the tv at uni)
2, steel middle ring painted silver of some '93/94 cranckset. old one wore out completely.
3, sachs black and silver chain.
4, rear block that has huge holes in it. bought from the bike park in leicester in '99 but no idea other than that. ( i'll be asking in another thread for some help identifying it)
5, zoom stem, my god the old one was so kak.
6, Kore bars off a '97 gt tequesta (free from my mate)
7, Pedals (nowt special) as the old ones fell apart..
8, Nokia cityrunner tyres. I love narrow, profiled city tyres. Had Michelin isatis skinwalls on it for the best part of 7 years of y ownership.
9, Oh and seat.. got swapped the first day i bought the bike. that was hanging to pieces.
10, UN-71 68-122.5 cartridge BB, also one of the modes of the first week of ownoership.

hope you like seeing the pics. I love ridin it.
