After a long hiatus from the race scene, Mongoose is making a bit of a comeback.
According to the company, they saw a need for more affordable, race-ready complete bikes and developed the new Title series of bikes to fill that void.
In terms of affordability, they definitely hit the mark.
The Mongoose Title Pro 24 is a steal at $250 (US).
Especially for a bike that features a 6061 Aluminum frame (with euro bb), full cro-mo 3-piece cranks, and Arisun tires.
So how does the bike cost so little?
When you peruse the spec sheet you can quickly see where the cost savings came in to play. The forks and bars are hi-ten steel.
Not ideal, but not out of line for an entry-level bike either.
I could see someone picking one of these up as an inexpensive starter bike…and if they watch the fence line at the local track for some lightly used forks and bars, they could get this bike upgraded for just a little more cash.
So what are the specs?
- Head Angle: 73 degrees
- Seat Angle: 71 degrees
- Top tube length: 21.7
- Chainstay: 15.6″
- Bottom bracket: 11.8″
All and all, not too shabby for an entry-level race bike.
