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.

Big Bang for the Buck Dual suspension, dual disc Promax brakes, deep V Arrow wheels with fat 2.35 tires in a cool star spoke pattern, and best of all an aluminum hydro-formed frame that is as sexy as it is durable! All for under $400. True, parts like the SR Suntour front shock, standard Shimano Altus dereuillers, and no name brand rear spring are sub-par for any serious mountain biker, but I priced all these parts separately and you can’t build your own for less than $750. That’s not including the stuff you will…

Nice for the cost. I was very impressed with the bike when it came. When I built the bike it seemed very solid. I did not have a chance to road test it. Had to return the product due to a defective rear brake caliper bolt that was made too long causing it to eat into the disc. Other than that one issue, pretty solid construction.I have just received the replacement for this bike. Of course the first thing I looked at was the rear brake caliper. The bolt this time is not as bad as previously, but it is…

Great bike! The bike was delivered mostly pre-assembled, only the front wheel, seat, pedals, and handlebar needed to be attached.The instructions were somewhat complicated, as the manual was not just for this model bike, but for EVERY model Mongoose bike. “If your bike has disc brakes, do this, if your bike has pad brakes, do this” and you really have to flip around in the manual quite a bit to figure out what you do and don’t have! Also, the illustrations in the manual don’t match the bike at…
