I wanted to start a new thread for a quick link of upgraded Walmart Mongoose Beast pictures & parts list to help those (myself included) when shopping for their Beast upgrade projects. Those of you not buying a Beast can just admire the fine work some of the forum members have done.
Suggestion when Beast is purchased if you want to take it for a spin = full re-grease of all bearings & proper tightening.
Customer Service for warranty & parts: 1-800-626-2811 or e-mail at CustomerService@pacific-cycle.com or AskUs@mongoose.com
Stock Specs: 36 hole rims for spokes 170 mm rear end 135 mm fr fork 110 mm bottom bracket 28.6 seat post size (use seat tube shim to reduce it down to a 27.2 for many more options) 47lbs stock gearing: 36 front, 18 rear 1 1/8th threaded stem & fork
Please post revisions / additions to info above so I can edit for accuracy & thoroughness.

Working on getting all the parts installed. Life is busy and such. In this photo I have already installed the 23t cog and seatpost, neither of which you can see in the photo. I also installed the 32t crankset, which you can catch a glimpse of.
hotwheels: hopefully i can find someone that wants to trade for some 20" wheels with 5/8" hubs

hotwheels: now , i have 3 sets of 24" wheels for trikes sitting in my garage

hotwheels: i was never into big tire bikes, i always prefered 20" muscel bikes, maybe im old school , maybe its cause im only 5'7" . who knows but, i just like smaller wheels on bikes, everyone has their own taste, its just a hobby for me and i try to have some fun

Desertguns: Once you try 26x4" tires you come up with lotsa dumb ideas for them

hotwheels: cant explain exactly wat they do but, looks like they compressed some square tubing then put it on a 45 degree angle and added some curves to it
Nov 22, 2014 23:43:31 GMT -5
hotwheels: ive seen some cool frames made with square tubing that is angled to look more like a diamond

hotwheels: i wouldnt mind trying some fat wheels on my trike ,maybe not this trike but a future trike i may build, just not gonna ever use one of them stretched cruiser frames, just dont like them
Nov 22, 2014 23:41:07 GMT -5
Desertguns: Chrome even. Thought of getting one for a fat (off road fat) trike but thats been overdone too
Nov 22, 2014 23:40:01 GMT -5
hotwheels: handlebars hanging over the front wheel,. causes oversteer, and the seat 40 miles back and the sprocket way up front, ya have to be a 10 foot tall contortionest to ride it
Nov 22, 2014 23:39:27 GMT -5
Desertguns: You can buy the frame alone for about 200-$250 or so.
Nov 22, 2014 23:39:13 GMT -5
hotwheels: some of the bikes i see people build look like they would be impossible to ride unless yer 10 feet tall
