      Not bad for the price

      I bought this bike a couple of years ago. I liked the idea of dual disc brakes and the dual suspension. Can't say I'm thrilled with the twist grip shifters though. Probably gonna replace them sometime soon. I replaced the seat after one 4 mile ride. Like sitting on a rock. Overall, the bike seems pretty solid. The frame, forks, handlebars, brakes and crank set all do what they are supposed to do. I have noticed that the paint on the handlebars and wheels have oxidized, but the bike was sitting in the weather. Overall, I'm happy with this bike, but it's not perfect.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Smooth Ride & Strong Bike

      I Bought this bike 2 years ago in the U.S. I'm a a semi professional mountain bike rider thats mean I ride my bike in trails non regulars in and out the U.S. in competitions. It's a great bike for that price and specially if you know how to keep the ride smooth and all the components ajusted. Iride more than 600 miles on really hard trails and I dont have any problems the shifts, breakes, rims still in very good shape. The suspension it's one of the best. Compared with my other bike, I wont paid $6,000 again for a bike with the same characteristics. Nobody found a better deal. For $256 you could have the same quality bike,with the professional characteristics and funtionallity. Please do not pay $6,000 for a bike if you have the same choicewith $256 in the market.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Mongoose spark

      I've had this bike for about a week and have put 35 miles on it. It's an ok bike but wouldn't recommend. Just saying because for the money I believe you should get a better quality bike. the cheap finders came off the first day. They just sucked. I had to fool with the derialer for hours to get it aligned and the front wheel needs it's spokes adjusted to straighten out the wheel. $270.00 I expect a much better bike. I do like the disc brakes and shocks. It rides really well if you dont mind a heavy bike. If you're looking at spending this kind of money I would sugest you go to a thrif store, salvation army, or pawn shop and find a used bike that came from a bike shop. Not KMart. Look for a good quality brand. those are the bikes you will use for 30 years not 30 miles.

      things constantly go wrong

      I own this bike and after a few miles of riding the left arm that holds the pedal came off and it is hard to get back on, i put it back on and it still comes off every mile or so. the gears also have problems, my front gear was bent so the chain had a hard time staying on, i wouldn't really recommend this bike.

      Great Bike

      I got this for my birthday and I love it!! The dual suspension is wonderful and the quality rivals bikes of a much higher price. Shifting is nice and smooth. The disc brakes are wonderful, no noise and powerful. There are no creaks from the frame. Overall very happy with it.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Very Nice Bike

      I am a 6' man who finds it difficult to find a bike that meets my height and needs. Shopping for a bike for years I finally had to break down and get a bike to help control my weight gain. I was a cyclist in my teen and put down the bike when I got my first car, bad move on my part. I was such a cyclist I was asked in my hay-days to be in a professional bicycle team but did not like the idea of having to shave the hair off my legs for them. So now I am in my 30's and I need to get riding again to get trim and back in shape. Overall I got this bike as a replacement from the 26" Mens Tactic. The Tactic started coming apart on me within 30 days of riding less than 3/4ths an hour a week. I was looking at another bike as a replacement but did not have them in stock (Spear I believe). So the Spark was the only bike which fit the features of a bike I really wanted. But it is amazing how much the prices went up for the holidays (by 10 25%). Overall this bike is worth the extra money. It sounds solid over the hallow sounding Tactic and just a tad heavier making it a more sound constructed bike over the other models by Mongoose. Just make sure you get the entire bike when you buy it though. Mine is missing the front Fender (splash guard) which ruins its personality. Read the manual for knowing what needs adjusting before use. You are going to have to adjust the Rear (maybe front) Brake Caliper, clean the Disc Rotors with rubbing alcohol before use, brake-in the Pads for the Front and Rear disc brake pads for 13 miles and adjust the front and rear derailleurs. But this is typical of New Bike maintenance. Read the Manual for more details. I can't wait to ride mine this spring when the weather brakes. I just hope this Mongoose Spark bike doesn't fall apart on me like the Mongoose Tactic did. I look forward to getting years and 1000's of miles out of this bike. I will be getting another one for a loved one who missing riding as much as I do. Doc

      I would recommend this product to a friend.
