Rise of the walgoose.

I'll make this abrupt as to give less fodder, free to me walmart mongoose....

First day home, in the shop kitchen. Seatpost/seat added (from parts pile). SRAM 8 speed chain, 19 bucks.
That was a couple weeks ago...
Yesterday I decided to work on it, so I rattled the frame and changed out the groupset today as well as the wheels.
(All from pile)

Rattlecan, sramx4 components, wheelset.

She rides great, only seems to weigh a little more then it should and is quite smooth. I'm also semi-light so the front suspension isn't bad at all (for me), and the rear is actually fairly stiff and has a lot of setting room left. All in all I'm really impressed with this mongoose...
