Stop The Mongoose

Mongoose Hybrid Bicycle

This mongoose wasn’t stopping and upon inspection of the front Promax brake caliper, it was immediately obvious that the caliper return spring had snapped in half.

Checking the bike over as part of a Tune-up service showed that the chain and cassette also needed replacing.

I replaced the broken caliper with a Clarks CMD-17, fitted an 8-speed Shimano chain and cassette, tuned the gears and brakes, replaced a couple of cables, pumped up the tyres…and it was ready for the road once again.
