Mongoose Cycling - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support


If you have no idea what's wrong then you probably would not be able to fix it either. If a brand new bike then contact the seller for help, see if there's a bike co-op in your town, or go to a bike shop for diagnosis.

Understanding Sag
In order to let the suspension work properly, we allow some of the rear-wheel travel to be used when supporting the rider's weight, this is called 'sag'. The basic idea is to have around 10-20% of your bike's total travel as sag. This allows the rear wheel to drop into dips in the trail and maintain contact and traction.

Adjusting Sag on Rear Suspension
Changing the amount of sag in the rear suspension is done by increasing or decreasing the spring rate of the rear shock. The rear shock's body is threaded and you will notice there is a nut on one end of the spring. Turning the nut in the direction that compresses the spring will increase the spring rate and reduce the amount of sag. Turning the nut in the direction that expands the spring will decrease the spring rate and increase the amount of sag. Never turn the nut to the point where there is space between it and the spring, this may cause damage to the shock.

Not all front suspension forks are adjustable, but if yours is, you should find adjusting nuts on the shocks. Check with the manufacturer if in doubt.

Master links are readily available from Connex, KMC, and a variety of Asian manufacturers. You will need to know the size ( width) of your chain. Links are specific to 8sp, 9sp, 10sp, 11sp chains.

Shimano or SRAM brand. All 8 speed cassettes are made to the same standards, so that is the type. The only difference is the splines on the freehub. Also, any brand that is 'compatible with' Shimano or SRAM will work. Look at the locknut on the freehub that holds the cassette on, it should have the brand stamped in it.

Google "mongoose serial number". That is what anyone here would have to do to answer your question. You may or may not be able to determine the age from serial number, but bike condition is far more important than age..

Bit vague, 29" is a standard size, not a model number.

"Size of what? chainwheel, crank length, Bottom bracket spindle length? Not possible to say in any case, as manufacturer specs can change, even in a model year. Take to a bike co-op or bike shop for advice or search online for "replace crankset".

Loosen rear axle nuts.
Pull back on the rear wheel until the chain is tight, then move forward just a bit and tighten both sides with your hands at the same time. Try to keep the wheel centered.
Tighten the right axle nut, center the wheel and then tighten the rear.
Turn the crank slowly. The chain should have slight play at the tightest point in the crank rotation.
If the chain is too tight or too loose loosen the right nut and move the axle forward or back, tighten and retest.
When tension seems OK loosen left nut and center the wheel, then retest.

The "hubs screw is called an axle, and you did not really ask a question. Unless you want to depend on the pegs to hold your wheel on you will need to get a longer axle and take apart the entire hub to replace it.
