2011 Mongoose Boot'r - large

Post by Mint Sauce on Sat Apr 23, 2011 6:28 pm

After seeing Jason shred & win multiple races on his Boot'r for the past few years it I decided that it was time to jump on the Walmart bike band wagon. I was all set on getting a new 2009 medium Boot'r from Randal Scott when I found a large 2011 model in Canada on Pinkbike. Looked like a good deal, so I went with it. Right out of the box I had a few problems, but with some thought & work I got it how I wanted it. The key features for me was the frame, shock & fork.

The 2011 large frame has a 64.5 degree head tube angle & has a slightly longer top tube than the medium, which feels better for me, even though I normally ride a medium.

I have 2 days riding on it so far on Humingbird (Rocky Peak, Simi), Skidmarks/ Sam Hill (Lake Elsinore), & Telonics/ PG (Laguna). The bike rides like a dream. The HTA & wheelbase of the large 2011 feels stable at speed & very controlled on jumps. It feels like it would be easy to do moto whips on big jumps. The Dorado fork is just amazing & I'm still dialing in the Elka shock, but I'm sure when I find my settings on that I'll be stoked on it too. The only things I would change on this build would be the brakes (I might consider Saints or Codes), the spring (I want a titanium spring) & maybe an air shock (Vivid Air or Roco WC Air).

2011 Mongoose Boot'r:

Boot'r Foreman frame
Elka Stage 5 rear shock
Manitou Dorado fork
Bontrager King Earl wheelset with carbon hubs
Maxxis Minion 2.7" tires & DH tubes
Race Face Atlas: bar, stem (DM), cranks, Team DH BB, & seat post
Hayes Stroker ACE brakes & 8" Hayes rotors
FSA Orbit Z 1.5" headset
SRAM XO Blackbox rear deraileur
SRAM X0 shifter
SRAM PC 991 Chain
SRAM PG 970 DH cassette
WTB titanium railed saddle
Answer or CB Mallet pedals
MRP G2 chain guide
Enduro MAX bearings

Hey dude, do you have the torque specs for the Freedrive pivots on the Boot'R? I remember there was a PDF of the Mongoose website, but it's not there anymore.
