Bike Check: Tom Isted’s Custom Mongoose

Mongoose‘s UK pro Tom Isted just built up a new custom bike and it’s one of the sweetest set-ups we’ve seen in a while. Because Tom’s on the global pro team his frame is a US-made Mongoose with Tom’s personal geometry, testing a few things out – fabricated by Laird with American 4130 cromoly tubing. US-made Mongoose signature frames are available – the Familia is Kevin Peraza‘s frame, so Mongoose making high-end framesets is not beyond the realms of reality here. Let’s get into details on this bike…
