Sorry. Wasn't paying real close attention. Is there more than one 
bicycle company called Mongoose ... maybe?

* The site has some pretty fancy bicycles. My guess is 
that these are probably what y'all are talking about.

* Wal*mart also sells bicycles labeled "Mongoose".  I have one of these.
(The Wally-world price was kinda high, so I bought a used one at a pawn 
shop. It's definately 'heavy as a tank' ... but I'm guessing it's not 
something anyone would compare to a Gary Fisher.)
