The expert in setting impossibly high standards is Eric Carter himself - the undisputed King of downhill and 4-cross. So when it came to designing an expert-level, downhill rig, Mongoose called on the King to come up with a race-ready ride that would meet his standards AND the standards of a true downhill junkie. Thus, the EC-D was born. And this year, it gets a larger, beefier 1.5" headtube and the all-new, amazingly smooth, Rock Shox Boxxer Team fork with 203mm of suspension, and a Rock Shox Vivid 5.1 rear shock with external adjustments for beginning and end stroke rebound! Now really...does vertical fun get much better than this?

Comments about MONGOOSE 2008 Mongoose EC-D FreeDrive Downhill Mountain Bike:

I have ridden this bike around town with ease, and have taken it off drops at Northstar. It is light and strong, and nothing gets in its way. For the price I paid, there is no better bike out there.

Comments about MONGOOSE 2008 Mongoose EC-D FreeDrive Downhill Mountain Bike:

i gotta say.all my friends have iron horses,and they are jealous of this bike.dont let the mongoose name scare you,all bikes are now made overseas,all the frames are basically welded the same.only minus i have after a year of kicking the ish out of this thing at diablo freeride park,is the bars are wide,and you cant cut em bc of the taper.but hey...who cares?!buy new ones with the 3000 you saved from not buying those iron horse bikes!

Comments about MONGOOSE 2008 Mongoose EC-D FreeDrive Downhill Mountain Bike:

i havent brought this to my local downhill mountain in north jersey yet (diablo freeride) but i've bombed it off some higher drops in my area,and i'm liking it alot.not to mention you can actually pedal this thing.fells better than the iron horse sundays i've rented at the mountain,and pedals much nicer than it,and my buddy's older iron horse.i actuallt take it on single track for s and giggles just bc i live in a flat area just to get used to the geometry,and it really aint that bad at all.i really like this bike,and comparing the components to any bike at all in its price range?!uncomparable.this bike blows any bike outta the water...hands down.(what does hands down mean anyways?)
