Wasn’t sure about it, then saw 105 group and figured maybe a bike shop mongoose. Carbon fork and bar end shifters way up front.

Looks like a nice find. I particularly like the angle on the aero bars. I'm really not a fan of the bars that crank your wrists down at a weird angle for miles on end.

Had some idle time to research this bike (Mongoose Pro RX5.5). Made in only one model year (1998) apparently. There was a 5.3 below, and a 7.7 (full carbon) above. Shimano RX-100 drivetrain, not 105, but most seem to think that is a quibble vs a deal-breaker. Considered heavy, and aimed at the beginner vs competitive tri-athlete. The cockpit and saddle on this find are not OEM. And, whatever you do, do NOT look up the Blue Book value.
