What were you doing when that happened?
I priced out replacement parts on JensenUSA and it added up to a bit more than $1000. It's an 04 Mongoose AL frame so I'd replace everything except the frame. Add disk brakes, replace the shifters, front fork (which is rusty because my dad left it on the side of the house for a month in the rain)

But it's an old frame and it's not like Mongoose frames are known for serious off roading (as clearly evidenced by my bike, which I broke on a pothole at about 20mph)
