I was thinking of getting one of the new Mongoose khybers. Has anyone ridden on one or seen them in stores yet? The paint jobs don't seem so nice over the net either....doh, hopefully they'll be better in person.
Rode one up at Ray's a couple months ago, and was super impressed. Only problem is the interrupted seat tube if you're going to trail ride it. Otherwise, I'd say the thing felt as good/better than anything I've thrown a leg over. Sick little bike!
Call up Allen at dropnzone.com in Bellingham, WA, he's prob got a couple on hand he could try that on and let you know. I keep thinking I've heard that you CAN put a coil on...but I do not know for fact.
