Mongoose Argus Expert Fat Bike
Whether you're venturing through sand, snow, or dirt, the Mongoose Argus Expert fat bike is your ticket to fun and adventure on terrain not typically suited to its skinnier tire mountain bike brethren. The Argus Expert sports an aluminum hardtail frame that's paired with a Rock Shox Bluto suspension fork with 120mm of travel to smooth out the roughest of terrain. The 2x10-speed drivetrain is stacked with Shimano XT/SLX components to ensure shifting is precise and reliable while an FSA Comet crank features Mega Tooth 38/24T chainrings. Hayes Radar Comp hydraulic brakes with 180mm rotors front and rear ensure there's superb stopping power. And what puts the "fat" in fat bike are of course the tires and the Argus Expert rolls on 26x4.5" Kenda Juggernauts with a folding bead. And for optimal stiffness and handling the hubs are thru-axle front and rear.

Comments about Mongoose Argus Expert Fat Bike:

This bike is solid and it feels like a monster truck on two wheels! Rocks and logs that were nearly impassable on my regular mountain bike are now much more fun on this bike. The clearance going over obstacles is much better than I imagined. I like that the frame is aluminum and so I don't have to worry about internal dampness and rust. I researched the bike on some rating sites and I'm so glad I choose this one! My wife loves the rugged look of it which makes it even better. Can't wait to get it out in the snow. The bike was easy to assemble. All went smooth except adjusting the Hayes Radar Brakes. Instructions were in Chinese so I went on line to Hayes website and downloaded instructions and that helped. I used some zip ties to hold down the cables as the ties on the bike are so-so. Other than that the components are great and you can feel quality in the bike. I have used Nashbar for years and I can say from experience that you cannot beat the forever guarantee anywhere. Also, the Support Folks are always great. This was a good low priced high quality choice and my first day out on it had me knowing it was a great buy. Thanks once again Bike Nashbar!!

    Comments about Mongoose Argus Expert Fat Bike:

    This bike is well built with quality components. On the trail it will roll over just about anything! The large size I ordered weighed 36 Lbs after assembly. The description is slightly off, mine came with a 100 mm travel Bluto fork. I ended up converting it to an electric bike with a bottom bracket mounted motor. It was fun to ride before the conversion, but now it is awesome!
