I was really excited when I found out that Mongoose was going to release a Stranger Things Special Edition of the Bike that Max has in Season 3. I was even more excited to find out that Target was going to offer them exclusively at their stores. Knowing that the odds were against me to get one because of the fact that there was going to only be 2 Available at each store, I had to act fast. I woke up early on the release date (6/30) and saw that my local store had one in stock. I instantly bought it. A about an hour later I got an email stating that it was ready for pick up. 15 minutes later i was there to get it. And there it was, behind the counter. I couldn't believe it! I actually got it! I confirmed Pick Up with clerk, and rode it out of the store. If there was any bike that captures the spirit of the 1980's and isn't actually from then, this is the bike to have! It's like Summer of 1985 when ever I ride it. Aside the stickers being exclusive to the Stranger Things bike, almost everything about it is near identical to an early '80s Mongoose. From the Yellow Pads, Seat and retro Frame, it's definitely the closest representation of a Vintage Mongoose. I'm so psyched that I got it because people are already selling them for nearly Triple the $219.99 store price, and they are all Sold Out! For the Price, it's a solid bike. I made a few adjustments as needed (seat, handlebars), and It's good to go. If you didn't get one, I'm very sorry. To those that did, Congratulations. I'm reliving my Youth all over again. Peace -T.C.
