Pros

Strong, sturdy construction is conducive to varying terrain types - suitable for use on mud, sand, rock and even in shallow water

Great overall quality for a mid-range bike - smooth handling, consistent performance and versatile functionality are major selling points

Cons

FSA crankset is far too flexible - prone to cracking/breakage upon excessive drops/downhill riding through rough terrain

2 agree

Very heavy - not recommended for extensive off road applications, especially those involving considerable inclines

1 agrees

Fork is of especially low quality - prone to rusting with only weeks of use, likely to break/malfunction before any other components

1 agrees

Major suspension shifts require the user to dismount the bike - severe disadvantage as compared to Trek and Kona models

1 agrees

Stock components are fairly disappointing - many users will want to replace virtually everything other than the frame

The Mongoose 2010 Otero Elite is one of three budget-friendly mountain/recreational bikes designed for casual riding, as well as grinding along bumpy local trails. It picks up where the Otero Comp left off and adds along superior rear shocks, rims, and break levers. This allows for more stability and control while cruising. Like its peers, the Otero Elite features a heat-treated 6000 alloy frame, a 4-bar suspension system, and what is described as an on-the-trail tool-free adjustable design. This unique design means that pivotal components can easily be adjusted while out and about if they start to cause any unwanted problems; users need not carry a set of screwdrivers and nuts with them all the time.
