Mongoose Cachet singlespeed bike. I bought this from Walmart for $150 for review, now it’s time to go. It is what it is.
What size is it, I’m looking for an inexpensive bike for my wife, she’s 5′ 6″.
Sold to the first bidder this morning.
Do good of a deal for it to sit. Oh well, the search continues.
I wonder how many of these are destined for the landfill in 18 to 36 months. What breaks on these low-end bikes that cannot be fixed?
If I was to pull one out of the obviously-set-out-for-the-trash and drag it home, what am I getting into? Let’s say the minimal brakes caused a kid to crash or almost crash and so they tossed it.
Would it be worth dropping $30 on a decent set of cantilever brakes? Or are they so bad that FreeRide would even reject the frame?
I assume you’ve all read this.
Well, I survived the Zodicat riding this thing, We’ll see how long she lasts…
The seat clamp couldn’t be tightened enough to actually prevent the seat from moving. I managed to bust it right before the ride and had to sneak up to biketek to get a replacement.
Other than that and the weak braking, it has been behaving fine.
