Here's a bike I saw.
It's a Mongoose Gavan.
Twin top tubes.

Mongoose has built a few different bikes now off of the original Terrex platform.

This is the second or third model I've seen with a rigid fork, and there is also the Hondo model with front suspension.

And this is the second version I've seen with rim brakes. It doesn't bother me that it doesn't have disc brakes, especially since I see that they machined the rim sidewalls for better rim-braking, so it's all good as far as that goes.

Otherwise it looks like the exact same wheels and tires on all of them, but this one has just one chainring, so not for riding in hilly terrain.

Is this one perhaps made to appeal to the ladies? The women seem to really dig my old Schwinn with the metallic green!
This bike has the old Euro mixte frame look to it, and seems to have a lower standover height. I also noticed that the stem is shorter and the handlebar is taller. Lower price too. :D
