2011 mongoose teo cali 300x225   2011 Mongoose TeoCaliMongoose shows off its 2011 TeoCali Mountain Bike at Deer Valley. Now stiffer, lighter and faster than its 2010 model, the 2011 TeoCali features a 68 degree head tube angle and a tapered head tube which gives a stiff front end.

The TeoCali has better cockpit and shorter stem by making the top tube longer. This also gives you better seat tube positions. The top tube has a more standover shape, hydroformed tube and gravity dropper seatpost.

It also guarantees better pedaling at faster speeds with its stiffer rear end. Mongoose increased the suspension for the TeoCali Super to a 150mm rear travel but kept the weight the same as with last year’s TeoCali.

The Mongoose 2011 TeoCali works to build up confidence and precision on the trail, making it a steady and dependable all mountain trail bike.
