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.

Once you get rid of the 27 "disk brake equipped" stickers, it looks good. I got this from Amazon, and setting it up was tricky. I am familiar with working on bikes, and getting all of the gears and breaks adjusted correctly proved a challenge.

After I finally got it set up, I found the big knobby tires slowed me down a lot on pavement. So I got a set of Forte Greenways ($20/pair) which are lighter and work a lot better on pavement, while retaining decent grip for tougher terrain.

I bought this bike a few months ago mainly to ride back a forth to work (about a mile each way) but I like riding it so much I find myself looking for excuse to ride it more. The 21 gears change smoothly, the brakes work really well and are quiet. The seat is even fairly comfortable and the dual suspension gives a good ride. I really like the way it looks and I get compliments on it too, so I guess I am not the only one that thinks that. I had it assembled so I cannot comment on the instructions. I am not a avid cyclist and I know it does not compare to the really expensive bikes those kind of people ride but for exercise and fun riding you cannot beat it.

Picked this bike up for about a hundred bucks (cheaper than most) about six months ago, and now it's sitting in my garage until I feel like shelling out a bunch of money. Firstly, I don't know why anyone would pay more than I did for a "mountain" bike with a sticker on it that says "not meant for off road use." Mine was put together by a dept store employee. Had problems basically from the get go, the left crank would loosen up, the brakes are horrible, and just a few weeks ago the freewheel broke. After having a free estimate done at the local bike shop they told me it would be about $150 ($70 for parts) to get it back to par. Though I did not baby this bike, I took fairly good care of it. Other than a couple days on the trails, I would casually ride around town every other day. All in all, I learned a lot of maintenance and lessons for when I buy a true mountain bike.

It's been quite a few years since I owned a bike and thus I was a little hesitant going from a $700 bike (previous one) down to one that was less than $300...but I'm happy. I'm not an expert biker or one that is planning on doing anything but leisurely stuff so this works well.

The only "changes" I plan to make are to get some smoother tires for the road (these are pretty rough) and the only real "issue" I have is the lack of space to put anything thus I will have to carry a small backpack that I can keep my lock, pump, repair kit, etc. with me on.

The instructions on putting this together also were pretty lacking. Even though it's self explanatory I did have to refer to a picture once.

I bought this bike last month from meijers and so far I've enjoyed it but I'm looking to change out the tires to something a little more smoother since I ride mainly street/bike trails.

But The best part was Meijers didn't have a price on bike so the employee told me that it looked similiar to another bike and I got it for $150
