Customer Questions & Answers for
Mongoose 26" Mongoose Dolomite Mens 7-speed Fat Tire Mountain Bike, Navy Blue/Red

The Mongoose Dolomite 26" Men's Bike provides off-road capabilities and everyday riding performance. The 26" by 4" knobby tires give riders enhanced stability when conquering different types of terrain and the extra width helps riders handle bumps and obstacles in the road. Dual disc brakes help the user stop safely even in wet and hazardous conditions and the seven-speed rear derailleur is highly responsive. Changing gears to tackle hills and other inclines is not a problem with this Mongoose Men's bike because the derailleur works with twist shifters for more control over the gears. The bike has an aluminum/steel frame and alloy wheels for lightweight durability. This navy blue/red bike has style as well and a rider can feel proud displaying it around town. The bike is 38" tall, making it suitable for people of many different heights. Some assembly is required.

Questions & Answers for Mongoose 26" Mongoose Dolomite Mens 7-speed Fat Tire Mountain Bike, Navy Blue/Red

Question

Frame material question.

HI, Please verify what material the Mongoose Dolomite bike frame is constructed from. The specifications state that it is aluminium, but the pictures clearly show a steel frame. Thanks so much.

Cranks are cast iron and weigh a ton.
Brake discs are steel.
Brake calipers are aluminum body with steel hardware.

"Alloy" is 2 or more elements combined. Steel is made from Iron and Carbon so technically steel is an alloy.

Zeigenfoot said: " The frame is steel. The wheels are aluminum. That's what they meant by, "Steel/Aluminum.""

The notion that any manufacturer would note the material of the rims under frame specs is dumb of them at best and deceptive at worst. They clearly state that the rims are alloy in the rim specs. There is no need to restate these specs so confusingly under other specific specifications. Show me any other instance where the rim material is listed in the frame specs by any manufacturer.

Pacific ought to correct this listing and the Massif listing so people understand what they are actually buying. Heck, Pacific Bicycles own pictures that they were spreading around the Web prior to the release of Massif shows it with an aluminum frame and steel fork.

Note that Pacific does not list any of their aluminum frame bikes in such an asinine way.

It ships at 51 lbs. I swapped tires/tubes, bars and stem and have it down to 42lbs.
A new seatpost, seat and cranks would drop a few more, I'm sure. Drilling the rims would help, too.

About 50 lbs.
Instead of upgrading, do a web search. There are fat bikes with reputable brakes and derailleurs, WITH ALUMINUM FRAMES, that start at $399. The frame will save a lot of weight. Also check the tires and tubes. I am still riding on the original Mongoose tires and tubes but they are heavy.

The tires and tubes are super heavy. You can cut 10 pounds easy by installing new tires and tubes. Reducing the rotating weight can really improve any bicycle ride.

The other super heavy part is the crank.

My Beast weighs right at 50 pounds and the Dolomite is basically the same bike with more parts added (brakes, gears, cables, levers) so has to weigh more than that.

answer 7
The bike weighs 49 pounds on my scale without the kickstand but with Shimano's 520 SPD's on there. Methinks if you......

1) Drill out the rims (1.5") double holes per spoke bed
2) Replacing all the steel parts with quality aluminum
3) Replace the ti(y)res with lightweight supple high TPI's
4) Go tubeless or use 2.5" MTN tubes

......you can easily get the bike in the mid/high 30 pound range. As far as money goes, is it worth it? I fortunately have bins and bins of parts to swap out so it will only cost time. The ti(y)res I gotta eat though. Worth.

Phred, I only have a 32~33" inseam length and I currently have the seat post (28.6mm diameter, steel) at max extension. IF your legs are proportional to your height (I'm only about 5'-10" tall) you will probably need to acquire a longer seat post for your use. You may run the risk of bending a longer seat post as the greater length combined w/your weight (280) will create more stress on the post where it exits the top of the seat tube. (I only weigh about 205 pounds). Hope this helps you in a decision!

It comes with the front wheel , bars , seat and peddles off . If you seperated the parts and took them out of the box you could easily put it in the trunk and back seat of a small car . However you should save the box after collapsing and folding in half in case you decide to return it along with the packing protection materials . You will need a box cutter or knife to cut the nylon tie straps that hold everything together . It is free to have it shipped to your house why not just do that ?

When we picked up the bike it was in a box the size of the bike. I drive a suburban so was an easy fit. The frame is thick but not huge and you have to put the front tire, handlebars, and pedals on.

Hi. Ours came in a cardboard box - not a crate - and was delivered by FedEx right to my front door. I don't believe there would be any way you could transport it with a small car. I would say that the dimensions you quoted are about the right size.
It comes with the seat and front tire separate, but in the same box. You also have to attach the handle bar and put on the pedals. It wasn't very difficult - took about half an hour to do everything.

Why not have the bike delivered to your house or work? I had mine delivered to my house and it was free. Yes it comes in a large box. 56x38x12 is more like it.

Mongoose doesn't make the Dolomite in any other colors. They make one called the Beast in red, link below, but that is a fixed gear bike with pedal brakes. This is the only Fat Bike they sell with disc brakes and gears.

Others have answered this question, but the cable kit they refer to is a Bell brand product. At Walmart I paid under $7. However, I have seen the exact same cable kit sold at other stores at anywhere from $7 to over $20. So shop well and buy cheap!

I have used these cable kits on several bikes. They work fine.

answer 2
Walmart sells a standard cable kit for bicycles. It will fit most bikes. Includes 2 brake cables, 2 gear cables. Will if fit your non standard bike? meh. Best bet is to take the bike to your local bike shop where they sell cable housing by the foot and will have extra long cables (used for tandems, recumbents, etc). They can measure and cut the housing to the exact length and you don't pay for the extra you don't need or have to mess with trying to cut it yourself.

As far as I know Mongoose does not sell any parts. But all parts are available at your local bike shop or bicycle specific web sites. Stems are available in thousands of sizes and styles and colors.

answer 4
I'd just go to your Walmart bike department and by a new cable set - usually includes 4 cables - 2 for brakes & 2 for shifting. They're pretty long (to allow you to cut to length) and about a year ago the package was about $5. Just use the Rear-brake and derailuer cable housings as-is and add a longer housing section to the front half only. The front brake cable is a full-housing setup but you should have plenty to work with. (The stock bars a really wide, so the cables are already pretty generous in length...)

The brakes are mechanical disk brakes of a brand I've not seen before. They have the initials "J.A.K." on them. The diameter of the brake disks is 160mm (other setups go to 180mm or 190mm in diameter but are for more serious or radical trail riding, etc.) The derailleur is a Shimano, Tourney TX. It's of a mass-market level of quality and not a specialty/high dollar item. It seems adequate enough for it's purpose. IF you're a serious enough rider to approach its limits of functionality you'll be replacing it w/something more expensive anyway. It is perfectly sufficient for the overall level of quality on this particular bike.
