Mongoose Impasse 29 Review – Quick Overview
Being tight on budget but you are in need for mountain bike should lead you to choose Mongoose Impasse 29. It’s really normal for you to think something like, “With that cheap price, is the mountain bike going to be okay?” The following Mongoose Impasse 29 review should answer your question.
“Unboxing” Mongoose Impasse 29
True, it’s quite irritating to know how the information about specifications and reviews about Mongoose Impasse 29 is really little. But, you can call yourself lucky because you’re going to learn how this bike is actually worth the money to spend.
Well, once you have the bike assembled, the first thing you want to do is to adjust the disk brakes. Fortunately, it’s not an experienced-expert matter. Follow the manual and you’ll be just fine. What’s vital is how the bike surprisingly rides well. Somehow, the 29’er tires give easier riding even on the rough surfaces.
If you feel like having some “adventurous and off-road” riding, this bike is just the suitable choice for you. See how the front fork, despite its so-so appearance, can absorb bumps really well. It’s a pity the bike doesn’t have any pneumatic or, at least, hydraulic dampening. If it does, the riding should be even more adequate (but hey, with that price tag, having no hydraulic dampening is actually reasonable).
Try sitting on the seat and (once again) it is surprisingly convenient and soft. If you want to ride the bike for quite a long time, you don’t need to worry about having your crotch numb! The total weight of the bike is quite light compared to the other similar mountain bike. It’s a good thing indeed since you can expect to have some maneuvers easily.
Almost all frames are made of aluminum and that’s the reason behind the light-weight feature. One thing lacking is how the brake levers are made of the combination of aluminum and plastic.
Yep, even the people who don’t know anything about bike notice that such combination is far away from being strong. You might want to spend some extra money to replace it with an alloy set for additional comfort.
However, despite the shortage, overall, in this Mongoose Impasse 29 review, this bike gives more value than the price tag.
