The front forks aren't adjustable, as you probably figured out. You can, however, get harder springs if the springs can be accessed at the top of the fork tube. If not, do what I did on my mountain bike. I bought a better pair of adjustable forks that I found on eBay. It will take a bit of investigation on your part regarding the dimensions of the forks, so you get the correct length and width where the forks fit onto the frame (and the overall desired fork length), but you'll be a lot happier with adjustables.

Personally, here in AUS bikes brought from Wallmart type department stores are very general purpose, meaning not professional, so the price doesn't hold in fact depreciates quite quickly so if you want to know for selling purposes than ask google, eBay, Amazon with words like used whether or not it has been, like unwanted gifts.

If I had to guess I'de say anywhere between $60 and $90 at best, but please feel free to do your own investigation and good luck.

Value of a element mongoose bike


Condition and appearance are important. If its in top condition it will be worth more than a junked out one. I usually buy this bike for about $ 25, then repair or tune it up and resell it for about $ 45. But that's my area. The same bike in Chicago will bring about 75-100 in full working order.

I need to find a part # for a chain ring for a Mongoose XR-75 mountain bike


Mongoose didn't make the chainring. They're generic (like most bike parts) and have many substitutes. Determine the parameters and then go looking for one that fits.

Other parts may also be worn, like the chain.

Loose handlebars on a Mongoose XR-75 mountain bike. I tried to tighten them but they still are loose. Help!


Check the splines on the handle bar. Just loosen the "clamp" and slide the bar over to one side enough so you can tell if the are stripped or not. If they are then replace the bar, if not then reassemble and try to put a littlle extra torque on the bolt.

I have noticed with the 2 of these bikes that I have that the bars do not like to stay tight for long, they tend to work thier way loose about every other time we use them. I just keep tightening them untill the splines strip, then pick up a new bar.

Contact Mongoose for parts info at: www.Mongoose.com under "about" click ask mongoose.

Good luck.
