The perfect bike for the in-betweener
The Mongoose Switch boy's bike with 18" wheel diameter
When they are too big for their old 16" with training wheels bike and yet still too small for a big-boy 20" bike....enter the Switch. It fits that inbetweener kid that is just a little short for his age, so the next side up looks way big...and might be dangerous to ride. The Switch is the bike that will bridge the gap.
One of the great details is that there is a coaster brake and a front and rear handbrake so this is a great way to transition to hand bike controls. They choose how they want to stop.
And it is from the brand that you remember that makes mountain and BMX bikes for the pros and for cool kids like yours.
How it all began:
Founded in 1974 in a Southern California garage, Mongoose was born when founder Skip Hess designed the MotoMag One wheel to make BMX bikes stronger with a rad new look. From there, BMX riding turned from an underground hobby to a full-blown phenomenon, with Mongoose's innovative products continually forging the sport's exciting new path. Mongoose riders dominated the BMX race circuit in the 1980s, while the company continued to push bicycle boundaries by pioneering the first wave of full-suspension mountain bike frames. Today, Mongoose continues to create products that push riders to thrilling new limits, whether it's ripping through gnarly mountain trails, stomping tricks in the park or owning the urban jungle. From reinventing the wheel to our current line of BMX, mountain and pavement bikes, Mongoose is synonymous with pure, unadulterated performance that always keeps the party going.
The 18" Mongoose Switch is a junior size freestyle bike just like big brother rides which offers a transitional bike before he is ready to go to a traditional 20", Equipped with a lightweight freestyle frame and fork, black wheels with front axle pegs, foot brake with front & rear hand brakes for sure stopping power make this the perfect bike for your little one to get involved with bike riding.

There is no kickstand, and the provided training wheels bent-all 4 of them-2 per bike. They all bent within minutes-even for a 7 year old.
Not one of the 4 wheels are true but ride-able at least. The seats garner a lot of complaints for being too harsh.
Overall, this is not the Mongoos we grew up to love back in the day, these are now Made in China poor quality knockoffs bearing the Mongoos name. I would have gladly paid 50% more for a more quality Made in the US product.
SAVE YOURSELF THE TROUBLE and choose a different product or buy this bike from an online store that also has a Brick and Mortar business so you can return in store if you have a similar issue.
HANDLEBAR TIP: If the handle bars look backwards, simply unloose the screws at the base of the handlebars and adjust the handlebars forward for a more vertical stance. It appears the handle bars were shipped in a slanted position for easier packing.
