About Mongoose
In 1974, BMX Products, Inc., later to be known as Mongoose Bicycles, launched from a humble garage. The first of its kind, the BMX bicycle was named after bicycle motocross and was designed to fit the needs of the rough-and-tumble dirt-racing pastime that took its toll on wheels and bicycles. The heavy-duty, one-piece cast-aluminum Mongoose Motomag wheel was soon born, and it was the first competition-ready BMX bicycle available. Skip Hess, while in Australia pursuing his motor sports passion, came into contact with a strange and unusual cat-size animal--the mongoose. Known for its passive nature while unprovoked, yet vicious and aggressive enough to kill a threatening Cobra twice its size, the Mongoose impressed Hess, who quickly registered the Mongoose trademark for his new bicycle racing frame.

The Expert BMX bicycle model, which is still a cornerstone of the Mongoose BMX line today, was introduced in 1980. Shortly after, Mongoose captured the first ever ABA National #1 Cruiser Title. Previously known for the 20-inch bicycle, this title signaled the re-direction of Mongoose bicycles to larger-wheeled, adult-sized models. Several years later, Mongoose continues to dominate the cruiser racing circuit with six National No. 1 Cruiser titles, leading to the introduction of adult-sized Mongoose all-terrain bicycles (ATBs).

In 1992, Mongoose pioneered the full-suspension market with the introduction of the Amplifier. This design is still the most-copied suspension design in the market. Several year later, Mongoose launched the Newman adult bicycle frame, which is proven to be 15% stronger than any other bike frame in the market. The design, while functionally sound, also raised eyebrows because of its distinctive look.

In the next few years, Mongoose increased its marketing focus to dominate the bicycle industry, and more important, extend beyond it. The Mongoose brand marketing initiative makes more than 100 million impressions. Mongoose’s brand awareness increased by over 130% in 1999 and solidifies the No. 2 market share position in units and dollars. Mongoose was acquired by Pacific Cycle, LLC, and continues to grow and prosper with more than 40 models of BMX, mountain, trail, freestyle, jumping, comfort, road, and cyclocross bikes.

It seems to be a very sturdy, durable bike.
jaysmom
High tensile, or "hi-ten" steel is cheap and is not strong or light enough for actual BMX racing or freestyle tricks.

This is the perfect bike for my 11 year old.

I have to admit, the bike is pretty strong but not exactly strong enough to go on huge dirt jumps or something. The bike is super heavy, around like 35 pounds. Most proper bmx bikes are around 20-27 pounds, with 20 being really good. If you just use this bike for cruising around, then it's a pretty good deal. However, if you are looking into doing tricks and going into serious bmxing I definetley do not reccomend this. The bike is actually pretty cheap though. Again, if you want to go into serious bmxing i reccomend something like an eastern, kink , etc.

I bought this as a gift for my 8 yr. old nephew and he absolutly loves it. I had seen a Mongoose bike for sale at Wal Mart for around $60.00, but you could instantly see the quality difference between this one and the cheaper bike. The price, $119.00 with free shipping was an excellant deal.

This is a beautiful bike, my grandson just loves it. It was delivered the next day. We had to take it to a bike shop for assembly but it was well worth it.

Bought this bike for my son (9) for Christmas. He absolutely loves it. I took it to a bike shop and paid them $45 to put it together for me which saved a lot of trouble so I don't know how easy it is to put together. My son said the bike rides great and handles well. The bike seems to be a good weight for a kid who rides it around the block with his friends and doesn't do any major tricks or anything.

All of my other son (12yro) friends from his school want to ride Dylan's new bike. The 6th graders want one just like this Mongoose. Easy to assemble and sturdy quality. My kids use their bikes on ramps and in the woods. This bike still looks brand new after a month of rough use. I recommend this bike for its cool looks, popular brank with the middle school crowd and can take rough use by the whole group of friends.

Bought this bike for my grandson, 6 years old, and he loves it. Looks like I'll have to get big brother, 8 years old, one just like it for his birthday. Excellent quality, design, and price.

Real BMX bikes are made of 4130 chromoly steel or aluminum. High tensile, or "hi-ten" steel is cheap and is not strong or light enough for actual BMX racing or freestyle tricks. This bike will be too heavy to maneuver in a freestyle fashion, and not strong enough to cope with racing or jumps. THE FRAME WILL BREAK!!!

Do not be lured in by terms like "hand-crafted". All bikes are assembled by hand in a jig and then welded by a person. This is nothing fancy. Bikes like this are just regular road bikes gussied up to look like BMX bikes. They have the pegs, the brake detangler, and the look, but they are nothing more than a cheaply-made children's bike. There will even be a sticker on the top tube that contradicts everything stated in this ad that reads, and I quote:

"THIS BICYCLE IS NOT DESIGNED FOR COMPETITION, STUNTING, JUMPING, OR OFF-ROAD USE."

Trust me, I used to assemble these bikes for department stores, and I have ridden plenty of them to tell you that they are fine for a children's everyday rider, but should not be trusted to cope with the rigors of any form of BMX riding!!!
