    Hey all, I would like to build a modern version of a Mongoose Moosegoose and one of the Huffy Pro Thunder Max, so just chasing measurements and angles if anyone has access to one?

    Found this:

    It gets me most of the way there on the Moosegoose, still need headtube length, top tube length and angle and seattube length and angle if it doesn't match the headtube would be great too.

    Definitely go for Moosgoose measurements.

    The Huffy's seat post angle makes the bike want to wheelie even when you don't want it to. :bigsmile:

    Top tube length is 19.5", and you have seat tube and head tube angles, as well as bottom bracket height, on the pic above. I think the headtube on a standard 'goose was 4", and the moosegoose is stated as having a 4" longer headtube...so, 8". Looks like you need a seat tube length or a fork axle to crown length to solve the whole geo :doh:.

    With the top tube length and headtube length you just gave me, I think I could work out the rest! :thumbsup:

    I wont be looking at doing this till late in the year though, so if anyone comes across one and can get more measurements before then, it would be appreciated!
