Features

  • Mongoose Supersized beach cruiser 4 1/4" knobby tires
  • Cruiser design frame with plenty of clearance to conquer any terrain
  • Alloy 4" wide wheel set with disc brakes
  • 7 speed gearing with Shimano rear derailleur
  • 3 piece cranks and beach cruiser pedals

Description

Wow did you see what that guy is riding? What was that thing? The tires are huge! Watch as he glides over sand, dirt and snow. See the glee he has as he bounces over embankments and boings over rocks. The Mongoose Malus 26-inch fat tire bike has arrived to save you from the doldrums and put a smile on the faces of all those you pass by. Built with 4 1/4-inch tires (earning the name fat) on a supersized beach cruiser frame, there is plenty of clearance to make it rideable on virtually any terrain. Plus, the Malus has 7-speeds with a rear derailleur and front and rear disc brakes so it still has its vein of practicality. Fat tires are all the rage and the Malus is a great bike to add to your stable, giving you the capability to ride year-round. There is nothing you can't do on a Mongoose and almost nowhere you can't go on the Malus. Founded in 1974 in a Southern California garage, Mongoose was born when founder Skip Hess designed the MotoMag One wheel to make BMX bikes stronger with a rad new look. From there, BMX riding turned from an underground hobby to a full-blown phenomenon, with Mongoose's innovative products continually forging the sport's exciting new path. Mongoose riders dominated the BMX race circuit in the 1980s, while the company continued to push bicycle boundaries by pioneering the first wave of full-suspension mountain bike frames. Today, Mongoose continues to create products that push riders to thrilling new limits, whether it's ripping through gnarly mountain trails, stomping tricks in the park or owning the urban jungle. From reinventing the wheel to our current line of BMX, mountain and pavement bikes, Mongoose is synonymous with pure, unadulterated performance that always keeps the party going.

abunda_amazon_reviews Look I’m a very big guy! Have not been on a bike in almost 3 decades. I researched and researched what bike to get that would even come close to supporting me. There were several that were $2k-$4K. But based on reviews and price I got this bike and rode it the day I got it. It has already exceeded my expectations. I did upgrade the seat (cloud 9) and the pedals. I will more than likely upgrade the handle bars. But it took this 500lb behemoth of a guy up and down the block with ease. I will update as the wear and year takes place but I’m excited. Tires held up great. I was shocked at just how big they are. I read a lot of complaints about the weight of the bike but I could care less right now. It seems fine for what I need it for. Let the journey begin.;;Reviewed in the United States on May 19, 2020;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;This bad boy is heavy duty! Love it!;;Tre;;;:::Many updates so please scroll to bottom to see whole review::: So I've only ridden this bike for about 60 miles so far but here are my initial thoughts: This is a fun bike to ride, I haven't taken it off-road but did ride on some rough side hills for a bit and it rides nice. It's a nice looking bike, much better colors than its brother. As you'll see below I've made a number of upgrades to the bike to make it much more capable. Each is pretty easy to do with basic mechanical skills. If you are interested in what others have done to their bikes search for the thread "The dolo in the (semi) wild". Suggested setup: Before you ride it the first time, grease and adjust everything-I pulled the wheels apart and regreased everything. They will come from the factory with a minor amount of grease and most likely will be overtightened. Upgrades: Vuelta MTB Comp Crankset Ibera Bicycle Triangle Frame Bag, Large Sunlite Cloud-9 Bicycle Suspension Cruiser Saddle, Cruiser Gel, Tri-color Black YST Sealed BSA Cupset w/Bearings English Threads Shimano MF-TZ31 Tourney Freewheel (14-34T Mega 7 Speed) Kenda Juggernaut Tire 26 x 4.5" Steel Bead Black Vee Tire Co. Snowshoe XL Fat Bike Tire: 26" x 4.8" 120tpi Folding Bead Silica Compound Black Tools Needed: Sprocket Remover/Pedal Wrench Park Tool Crank Puller for Square Taper Cranks Park Tool FR-1 Freewheel Remover for Shimano Freewheels Edit:21Nov2015 Took it for its maiden ride in the snow. The modifications were great upgrades. I stayed in the lowest gear most of the ride. Was a lot of fun. Tires were running 6 in the front and 8 in the rear. Might need to drop a little lower for additional traction. Edit:18Jan2016 After about 40 miles of snow riding I have decided to get new tires for increased float and traction. The stock tires are good all around tires but I easily broke them loose in the lower gears. I installed the 4.5 inch juggernaut tires above. There is a good amount of clearance between the frame and chain in the lowest gear. If we get more snow this year I'll be pumped to see what they can do. Edit: 9Jul2016 I have almost 300 miles on the bike now and I still like this bike a lot. Back in February I rode a fat bike race and it performed well, I on the other had didn't do so great. I've been pulling a cargo trailer and bike trailer a lot the last few weeks and it's a nice ride. I'm really starting to love fat biking especially since it makes all the roads smoother and I don't have to worry about seams in the road to throw me off. I'm planning to take this on RAGBRAI for a day so I'm feeling comfortable taking the bike on long trips though this is significantly farther than any previous one. Edit: 29Oct2016 The last year with this bike has been great. I took it on one day of RAGBRAI and it survived 74 miles of fun. I have started to pull my cargo trailer more often and it does a great job conquering the hills with up to 120 lbs behind me. Not much more to report other than at 650 miles it's still riding well. Time to get ready for winter riding. Edit: 25Dec2016 Just installed the 4.8" Snowshoe XL tire that I studded by hand using flat top bike studs. The tire is slightly smaller than the 4.5" Juggernaut I run in the summer. Great traction with this combination, I didn't even know I was riding ice until I put my foot down to check. Edit: 3Nov2017 Wow, it's been awhile since the last update but the bike is still going strong at 1,522 miles. No issues to report.;;Reviewed in the United States on November 15, 2015;;4.0 out of 5 stars;;Nice intro fat bike, great value;;A&B E;;;I'm a big guy. 6'4" tall and almost 400 pounds. Needing to begin a more healthy lifestyle, I purchased this bike. The low gears make it possible for me to start slowly. I am impressed with the heft of this bike. It handles my weight just fine. The money spent on having it professionally adjusted was an investment in ease of use and well worth the price. The bike shop recommended that I upgrade the crank bearings, which I did, and the wheel bearings, which I did not. I'll upgrade those when necessary. For me, the seat was a bit narrow so I corrected that with a "Cloud 9" seat. Otherwise, I have no issues. The tires smooth the terrain. Dirt roads are no challenge. Glad I made this purchase.;;Reviewed in the United States on October 3, 2016;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Fat tire bike for a fat man...;;Marvin Ely;;;After reading the reviews I knew there would have to be a lot of parts replaced to make it a good ride, but I hoped to make it longer than 5 days. When I received the box from UPS Friday, it clearly needed to be packed better for shipping. The box had been shipped laying down and the derailleur was bent and pushed into the rear wheel. I was able to mostly get it pulled back out and repositioned, though I should have sent it back right then. I rode 8 miles Saturday and 8 miles Monday, as long as I kept it in 6 and didn't shift gears often then it was manageable for the short term. If I shifted to a lower gear then it would work itself back up to 6 within about 45 seconds, annoying but not the end of the world for a part I intended to replace on payday anyway. Fast forward to yesterday, Wednesday. I go to the local park to ride after work, this place had a couple more hills than Saturday and Mondays locations. About a mile and a half into the ride I have to stand up to get some extra leverage up the hill, the derailleur immediately breaks, throws the chain and does a complete 180 on the bike so it is upside down on the wheel. I manage to slide it back around and eventually work the chain back into place just enough to milk it back to my starting point and drive to a bike shop. Less than a week in and I'm already extremely disappointed in the quality of this bike and am already dropping money into it MUCH sooner than anticipated. This most likely could have all been avoided if the manufacturer had properly packed the bike and protected it during shipping.;;Reviewed in the United States on May 10, 2018;;1.0 out of 5 stars;;... a lot of parts replaced to make it a good ride, but I hoped to make it longer ...;;Travis Anderson

When I received the box from UPS Friday, it clearly needed to be packed better for shipping. The box had been shipped laying down and the derailleur was bent and pushed into the rear wheel. I was able to mostly get it pulled back out and repositioned, though I should have sent it back right then. I rode 8 miles Saturday and 8 miles Monday, as long as I kept it in 6 and didn't shift gears often then it was manageable for the short term. If I shifted to a lower gear then it would work itself back up to 6 within about 45 seconds, annoying but not the end of the world for a part I intended to replace on payday anyway. Fast forward to yesterday, Wednesday. I go to the local park to ride after work, this place had a couple more hills than Saturday and Mondays locations. About a mile and a half into the ride I have to stand up to get some extra leverage up the hill, the derailleur immediately breaks, throws the chain and does a complete 180 on the bike so it is upside down on the wheel. I manage to slide it back around and eventually work the chain back into place just enough to milk it back to my starting point and drive to a bike shop. Less than a week in and I'm already extremely disappointed in the quality of this bike and am already dropping money into it MUCH sooner than anticipated. This most likely could have all been avoided if the manufacturer had properly packed the bike and protected it during shipping.
