About Mongoose
Founded in 1974 in a Southern California garage, Mongoose has always been an innovator. From the company's initial cast-magnesium MotoMag wheels to its current crop of BMX, mountain, and pavement bikes, the Mongoose name has been synonymous with bicycle performance. Mongoose builds specifically for riders, which is why the company's BMX designers aren't wasting time watching reruns on ESPN2. Instead, they're constantly testing their new designs at the park, on the track, and on the hill. This continuous experimentation is what drives Mongoose to cook up things like the Front Porch head tube, which lets you fine-tune the handling on Black Diamond series mountain bikes, or Freedrive suspension technology, which eliminates pedal bob and provides a super-efficient full suspension. Mongoose bikes don't just push the limits; they set new ones.

We bought this bike for our 11 year old son, even though the box states from 6-11 years old. I think it would be a bit large for a 6 year old. This bike seems to be more appropriate for 9-15 year olds. The bike has a great graphic design on the middle section. It can hold 200 pounds. I think this is a great buy for a preteen and teenagers. It also had the extra bars for the ride-ons.

I got this bike and in under a month the pedals were breaking. In a month they broken so bad it was unridible. I bought new pedals and they didnt fit. Those pedals were the same size as every pair of high quality pedals. So if you want some good pedals you need new cranks that fit which usualy cost up to $50. I prefer not getting this bike if you dont want to pay an extra 50+ dollars in repair.

I'm 40yrs old and bought this bike for my 8yr old. Growing up, I remember being in love with Mongoose bikes. Unfortunately, the Mongoose bikes of today are nothing like they used to be.

The bike came with missing parts ( misc bolts, screw to fasten the seat); the owner manual is NOT specific to the bike model; calls to customer service were answered by a call center person who is NOT at all familair with the bike.

I guess this is the trade-off we must pay for having stuff manufactured cheaply overseas (China).

Bike Review: This would have been a 4 star review if I were only rating the bike. I took one off because there was a slight alignment issue with the part of the bike that holds the fron wheel, (sorry don't know what it is called). Also the stickers fir the Mongoose labels where not all put on as neatly as they could have been. My son likes to pick at things like that so I would like a professional job with the stickers, not to metion that I paid over $130 for the bike, I expect quality work on even the stickers. The overall bike was great though. I thought the light green would be a lille brighter but it is a sweet bike. I wish we were keeping it.

Shipping Review: I was excited when I finally got the bike. I ordered it for my son who I know would love this bike. When I got it though the box was mangeled in multiple places. It was not well packed at all. There was nothing in the box to keep the bike and pieces from shifting in the box during shiping. There were deep scratches on both sides of the handle bar and on 2 places on the body of the bike. I paid about $130 for it. There is no way I could accept a brand new bike for that price that has that much dammage on it. The first one I saw I thought, it's ok he will do wore then that over time, but when I found 3 more I could not justify keeping it, no matter how much I love it and know my son would have loved it. I am just glad he did not know what I was getting him.

For those that are not handy, I would get something that comes assembled. I am pretty handy and most of it is easy to get together. The problem for me was assembling the breaks. The instructions were not clear enough for me to easily figure it out. Had I been keeping it I would have eventually figured it out, but not without a lot of headach.

When I was growing up I lusted after the Mongoose bike at the local bike shop. So, when it came time to order my son a "big boy" bike I got him this Mongoose. It's pretty amazing how over the years Mongoose has transformed itself from selling top notch bikes to selling rather cheap bikes. The pegs on this bike are just a waste. They're extremely heavy and just get in the way. Also, the gyro on this bike is pretty useless because it prevents the bike from braking effectively. Actually, the brakes are pretty useless because of the gyro mechanism. This isn't a freestyle bike to get for those parts at all. Weight wise, this bike is heavier than my big beach cruiser... But my son thinks the bike is cool and it rides just fine, so I kept it.

It's a nice sturdy bike and fairly easy to assemble. My son likes it a lot. The only shortfall we noticed was that it doesn't come with a kick stand. Otherwise, it's great.

My son (11 years old) LOVES this bike. I like the style but the manual sucks! It is not written in a manner that makes it clear which model it is referring to when detailing the various setups. I had a hard time figuring out the correct configuration for increasing the tension for the rear brakes..... my son eventually wrapped the line and used one of my hair bands to hold it to the handlebars to decrease the slack allowing enough tension for the rear brake to pull! I refuse to take this bike to the shop to pay upward of $100 for a $120 bike!
