Mongoose 18" Radical Freestyle BMX Bike (R1832) Look just like the Mongoose pros and practice that next big trick on the Mongoose Radical. Designed specifically for aspiring riders who want the coolest bike on the block.
The Mongoose Radical boy's 18-inch bike is a terrific choice for junior freestyle riders. The Radical is equipped with a junior-sized freestyle frame with oversized tubes for durability. The front and rear alloy caliper brakes, meanwhile, provide sure stopping power, while the cable detangler supports 360-degree bar spins. Other details include a blacked-out 48-spoke wheel set for added strength, four freestyle pegs for any style trick, an alloy four-bolt stem that clamps the handlebars securely, and a comfortable freestyle saddle.
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. Mongooses 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.

This 18 inch frame was a good transition size for him. I think the 20 inch frame would have been too big. Seems like a durable bike so far. Hand brakes are useable by his 7 y.o. hands. We also love the color - red really stands out and makes him a little easier to see when riding.
My husband put the bike together - and I didn't hear any complaints - and he did it quite quickly.
FYI - if you are ordering this as a surprise gift - know that the box has a picture of the bike on the outside... we almost ruined our surprise when the UPS guy came walking up to our house with the box before my son's birthday. My husband quickly directed UPS to the side of the house. phfew.
UPDATE: I purchased basically the same bike in green at Toys-R-Us (only theirs is called the Antic) and all was well, I had the bike out of the box and it was being taken for a test ride about 20 minutes later. I would imagine that if Amazon had sent me another bike, it would have been just fine, but I didn't want to have to have to wait for another bike. The bike is actually pretty great, for what it is, and the boy loves it!
The sizes is perfect for my 6 year old son The 20'' is to big for him (Not Safe)
Thats why I went with this bike the SIZE, BRAND, And the fact there really isn't many 18'' bikes to chose from in these pice range.
This bike is well built one of the better one like other people have said the brakes on the bike are OK they work you have to adjust them to your liking.
I would buy again ...... If you are looking for a bike take a look at this bike.
Imagine how wrong you could be; a box of part and a box of assorted nuts and bolts and NO insturctions.
2 1/2 hours later and a lot of help from friends it is together. It better be an awesome Christmas present!
