  • A. You are comparing apples to oranges. Different bikes.

  • A. Above answers are from people that don't own either or both bikes. I own both. If you like single speed bikes, you will like it, if you like multispeed bikes with mountain style shifters the denali is for you. Both have comparable build quality, with the exception of the freewheel on the denali, that is its only weak point. The detain can be turned into a fixie only if you replace the rear hub, it is a free/free hub there is no lockring threading on it. If you want a single speed that is fixie ready then buy the thruster fixie. And to those that think it is possible to threadlock a fixed cog on, then go ahead and use threadlock red, and then hope it never comes loose. I would rather replace the rear hub and have a proper lockring holding the cog on. Mine is just fine with the free gear on the back, I don't believe in riding fixed on the street.

  • A. yes, it can turn into a fixie. It is a flip flop hub design you just need to buy a cog and lock ring.

  • A. Denali has gears mongoose has just 1 (you probably already knew this). the bike has a flip flop hub according to reviews so u just need to add a fixed gear sprocket to the other side $10. No big deal. This bike is going to perform better for you if you live in an urban or otherwise flat area. The Denali will perform better if you want to climb hills as well. For the price of the Denali though keep in mind the weight will be high for the climbs and the shifting will be rough.

Got this bike and its a real good value especially considering how expensive bike and bike parts are now days but I did end up pretty much upgrading the whole bike! The only original parts now are the frame and rims. Got new tires, new tire tubes, new handle bar grips, new seat, new pedals with straps, new pedal arms, new crank, new sealed crank bearing cartridge, new freewheel, new brakes handles, and new brake pads. The only necessary upgrade really is the brake system though. Its not the best of quality but still gets you by. I did have a problem with the bearings in the crank slipping. I'm not sure if this was a factory defect or if it was my aggressive pedaling and wieght (210 lbs) combination but that is why I replaced them with a hefty sealed bearing tube (The bearing tube or cartridge as its called the center part where the pedals meet the frame). It comes with a leisurely 44 tooth front crank and a 17 tooth freewheel. Its not a bad set up as it functions well in the uphills but it is a little slow on the flats. I needed more speed so I attached a 48 tooth front crank and 16 tooth freewheel, NICE! The uphills definitely harder but this gearing is making my legs strong as balls! I fly past everyone on the flats and beat out geared bikes with ease. Its does not come with two different rims. Mine were both black. It also comes with slightly curved bars and not totally flat ones like in the pictures. Overall it's a really awesome bike but if you're a serious biker and daily commuter then your gonna have to put some better parts on it. If you're a casual rider that only rides a little bit then the factory settings will be good enough for you. Just know that riding is addicting! You will end up spending cash for aftermarket parts no matter what type of rider you are! I think I put about $300 worth of aftermarket parts in mine already! Its well worth it though. I was dropping pounds and looking trim within no time at all. I ride about 16 to 30 miles per day. Here is quick list of the pros and cons: PROS: -Sweet aesthetic value (looks awesome) -Curved seat tube which brings the back tire in closer and allows for less chain length. Makes the bike nice, sporty and compact -Great set of rims that are easily worth the price of the bike -Can be made into a fixie as it has a "flip-flop" rim system. Real cool if your a hipster. I'm sure hipsters would never admit to riding a wal-mart bike though. Be sure to take all the Mongoose brand stickers off if you are trying to be hip. Cons: -Cheap braking system -Scratches easily, be sure to treat with kindness -Welding quality is not very clean as you are able to see the big weld lines -White is nice but gets dirty so easy! It's real high-maintenance color scheme. I switched to a less demanding blue motif -Some bikes may have factory defects. Be sure to check over it or buy in store for quick returns

I bought this bike about 2-3 weeks ago. So far there are two con I see are the whole brake set front and back, it is horrible. It is really hard to stop as half the brake pads never touch the rims. The brake set is bad too it is hard to adjust and would not stay at where you want it to stay. If you are planning on getting this bike I suggest upgrading the brake set which would run you 20 plus. I spent 40 dollars on mine as I want a good quality one. I know it might just be bad luck for me but the nut to unbolt the brakes stripped on the treats so I had to saw out the bolt on my front brakes. The second con is that the bike grip is hard and it feels like sand paper. I have also changed the grips and I suggest you to buy the Sunlite LOGO Thick grips yes it is a little pricey but it is super comfy. (you will have to cut off your grips if you want to change them) Another thing that the Walmart site does not mention is that it is a little bit bigger than 54 inches I would say it is 56 inches. I am 5'8 as I find this height to be perfect. I would say you have to be 5'6 or taller to ride this bike (but I'm unsure about that). This bike Weights about 26 lbs which is what mongoose told me through their email services. The seat is hard and for the first few times of riding it hurts or at least make your butt numb as I ride 20-30 miles at a time so far I rode or put about 50-70 miles on it. For the people who understand bike terms. I also E-mailed mongoose to see what other specs is missing the only thing I've got is that The crank has 44 teeth, and rear sprocket for the freewheel has 18 teeth. This is good for slight hilly area. It is easy to take off but, you can't keep up with higher bike ratio bikes unless you work hard. Other thoughts or questions people might ask. Stickers are removable but, there will be some sticker residue left over. It is easy to remove the left over residue if you have the proper remedy (I used Carb cleaner as I find that the easiest). Bike gets scratched easily. There is no fixed gear cog, but it is a flip flop so you just need to buy a cog which ranges from 7 plus. It is easy to assemble if you have the proper tools. (basic allen keys and open or adjustable wrench) Over all I am very please with this product but I suggest this price tag to be 179 or 189 since the brakes and grips are horrible. When I ride this I do get a lot of head turner.

Great bike. Its a Sprinter with out drop handle bars (curved over the front), and a free wheel instead of a fixie. The frame is nice and light, the wheels are sturdy. I had to tighten a few loose spokes (they weren't really 'loose' for say, just not as tight as they could be, I felt it after my first few rides) I've upgraded the brakes, tubes/tires, saddle, peddles (I actually broke the stock peddles after about 300 miles, but I ride hard, jump up and down curbs frequently, and even take it off road because its geared low for a single speed freewheel, I'm tall, its like a really fast BMX to me) and brake handles . Basically, the only thing stock is the rims, frame, handle bars, and seat post. The aluminum frame and wheels are worth the 200 bones alone.. I knew that purchasing the bike when I was at Wally World looking at it. I was getting some tubes for one of my other bikes and saw this, noticing the frame and wheels, I just bought it right then. Now that I've upgraded her, shes an awesome ride. Totally worth the money after the upgrades..

First off, a couple things were different when i opened the box. The bars were not flat, like in the picture, they were riser bars like the cachet has. Also, both wheels had the black rims, not one white and one black as pictured. Both of these things combined kind of irked me because those were 2 reasons why I liked this bike enough to order... The brakes and welds are horrible. The weld on the stem is especiallly sloppy, almost to the point of embarrassment, I find myself looking at it all the time and just shaking my head. This is a very nice bike to look at from about 10 feet away. Anyway, all things said, the value for how cool and light this bike is can't be beat...well except by the cachet... upgrade a few parts (stem/brakes) and you've got yourself something pretty nice. the wheels and rims alone are almost worth the $200 IMO.

Based on all reviews here I got this bike as a starting point for a fixie. Considering the price I rate it as 5 stars. And no, it is not as nice as a $700 bike but definitely worth the money. The quality of components is pretty much what you would expect for a low-end bike, however in mine everything worked perfectly after assembly, adjustment & lubrication. The bike is nice to ride, parts can always be changed as they break or wear out. As has been noted the exact specs for the bike seem to vary. Mine came with two black rims (not black & white like in the photo) and slightly curved and narrow handlebars. After some 50 miles on the bike I am pleasantly surprised. Some dimensions & measurements: - Gearing 44 front 18 rear (some have indicated 17 rear sprocket so I guess this varies) - Flip-flop rear hub with 18 tooth freewheel sprocket on one side, the other side is empty - Stand-over height 31" (angled top tube, measured at point aligning with the tip of the saddle) - No-name rims & saddle - Quando hubs with machine bearings - 170mm square taper cranks, no-name bottom bracket - White 700 - 25 tires - 22" handlebar width - Plastic cage-type pedals with reflectors - Side-stand attached to left rear axle bolt - White soft grips, quite nice but will surely get dirty fast - White painted chain As many have noted the brake set quality leaves something to be desired. However after adjustment I can't blame them too much, can do a stoppie on the front brake. The bike rides surprisingly well, and except for the saddle that is slightly on the soft side has been a very pleasant surprise. I am 5'-10" with 32" inseam and the bike feels right-on with stem at lowest position and saddle adjusted suitably (roughly as in the photo). My guess is that the bike would start feeling too big if you are under 5'-8" and not fit someone closer to 5'-6" or so. And due to the curved main tube the saddle post length is limited, while the bike will fit a tall rider you would be looking for a longer saddle post. The frame geometry seems successful, capable of nice tight turns but not too squirrely. The 44/18 gearing seems a good fit for overall (city) riding. There is enough clearance from pedals to front wheel that my toe-clips fit without interference problems. However if you have larger shoes this will not work as a fixie due to toe-to-front wheel clearance issues. Also the bottom bracket sits fairly close to ground so even with 170mm cranks this limits cornering angles.
