I bought this for my 9yr. old grandson. Was extremely easy to assemble. (I've had a few experiences assembling bikes over the past 50yrs..LOL) He absolutely loves it. Washes and waxes it, probably too often? Seems to be very good quality..should last several years. I engraved his name and phone # on it and recorded the serial #.
I really like the design of the bike. Its really smooth to ride.
Really nice looking bike. It seems solidly built. I purchased it already assembled from Walmart and have not had any problems with the brakes rubbing. I haven't had any problems with it and my 7-year-old loves it.
I got this bike around 3 weeks ago since I needed a bike. This was the first time I learned how to ride a bike, since I never really was interested in bike riding until just a few months ago. I got this bike, because it looks cool and looks great. I learned how to ride it in 3 days after practicing it for 30 minutes each day. Riding on the sidewalk is pretty smooth, on the road it's good too, but it slows down a lot on the grass you have to put more force into the pedals. The brakes work fine, I have no trouble stopping. The bike weighs around 30-38 pounds maybe, when I lift it I do it with both hands one on the handlebar and one on the frame. I don't do a lot of bike riding maybe just 1 mile a day, sometimes I use it for school it gives me no problems. When you put all your force on the pedals it can go pretty fast, but road bikes still go faster than this and it's only single gear. Tricks also might be a bit harder since it is heavier than other BMX bikes, but I guess you get used to the weight. In conclusion I like this bike very much I'm 5"4 and weigh about 110 pounds and it's nice. It comes with a kickstand too you could see in the picture. If you like riding bikes at a nice easy pace or are a boy who likes the color and design this is a simple and a great bike for you to get, but if you don't like the design or style you should skip this bike and look for one you will enjoy.
Cannot seem to adjust the back brakes exactly right, no matter how much we adjust.
Either they rub the tire while riding, or won't stop the bike at all.
I was really impressed withthis purchase not only did it featur front and rear solid axle foot pegs but the annodized rims and handlebar bar clamps make this bike shine. MY grandson 9 years old claims this bike is "AWSOME" and would not trade it for any other even more expensicve models. Walmart had the bike in stock for same day pick up. I also puchased a bike helmet and lock.
This bike was a Christmas present for my grand son. He was so excited when he saw it and has not stopped talking about how perfect it is. Not only does he do "normal" riding on it but he also does "stunts" as he calls them.
I would recommend this item to other shoppers. However, I would instruct others to select site to store with caution! I received the notification I could pick up the bike as early as Wednesday 10:30 a.m. and as late as the following Wednesday. I went in Friday evening to pick it up only to be told you have 48 hours from your notification time to pick up the order and they didn't have my order. Luckily there were 2 of the same bike in the stockroom and they were able to give one of those.
This is the 4th Mongoose I have purchased for my grandchildren. They love the bikes so I do too. They are very well built and have had no problems. I am sure that a pro level BMX rider would find faults with the bikes, but for kids who ride in the woods and on the street it's a great single speed bike.
its a great bike nuff said
This item was a good product. It was a In-Store pick up. What I wasn't happy with is that they pulled an older model from the rack and it was scratched, the seat was ripped, and the handle was also cut. So I had to return the product and then get the new model bike that was not damaged.
In the end my son was happy with the bike.
Great bike and a low price. Bike was already assembled when I picked it up. All I had to do was a slight rear brake adjustment and off my daughter went riding it all day. Strong and great looking BMX bike.
Regret ever buying this bike. Soon as I got it home, had to take it to a bike shop to adjust the rear brake because the pads were touching the rim. Repair guy said the brake design was bad and he couldn't really adjust it that much. There was also a slow leak in the front tire that I discovered late Christmas eve. Finally, the rear brake lever mount cracked when my son took it out for a ride on Christmas day and fell off. I would expect a part like that to last more than 10 minutes on a dirt bike intended for children. Returning the bike today.
My son (age 10) purchased this bike pre-assembled with his own allowance and gift money and it has proved to be one disappointment after another. So far, we have replaced two pedals that broke and fell off and one brake lever. The brakes are extremely difficult to adjust as well and have a tendency to come out of adjustment. At least two neighbor boys have the exact same bikes and they too suffer similar problems. I wish my son had saved his money and bought a used bike at a garage sale.
At less that half the price of the cheapest bike at the local bike shop this is a great bike for a young child to learn on. I suspect the bike to have been assembled on a Monday or a Friday by the Walmart night crew, but the the sales help in sporting goods did a great job tweaking what he could to make the bike rideable and the right height for my son to test drive it and make his choice. I gave it a once over when we got home and discovered the chain and crank to be over tightened. I spent a total of about 30 minutes screwing with the bike, doing the things I would expect a full service bike shop to do prior to delivery. I decided to remove the lock nut on the crank and repacked the bearing retainers, put a little slack on the chain, and lubed the brake cables. The front brakes weren't dragging, but tweaked about 80% to one side. My son may have never noticed, but what was two more minutes to make the bike perfect. We rode for an hour this morning and no issues at all. So if 30 minutes of your time is worth saving $100+ dollars, I would say this bike is a good buy for your kid.
i bought this bike 2 days ago i rode it to work yesterday for the first time, the rear brakes barely worked at all, the front brakes didnt and they squeeled super loud. on my way home i ride UP a large hill, while doing so the rear drive sprocket internals got completly destroyed. i would not reccomend this product to anyone except MABY a small child riding a bike for the first time.
Ordered this bike online for the convenience and had my husband go get it. He brought it home in a box. I was like why is it in a box, well it was not assembled. I never saw a option to have it assembled, but why would I want to buy it online for convenience and then assemble it myself? The assembly went ok but the instructions for the brakes were horrible. The front brakes were fine and we figured them out, but I am pretty sure there were no instructions for the kind of brake in the rear. If you can't figure out how to do things yourself, definitely have it assembled for you.
i got this bike last year trust me never leave this bike out because when i did that it got stolen it was my fav but not now but still great bike
DO NOT BUY. Bearings go out within four to six months. Double check all bolts when buying assembled. Bought assembled, and about eight percent of all bolts and nuts were not tightented. I have had nothing but problems with this bike, and will NEVER buy another Mongoose.
On the good side, it does make a GREAT boat anchor.
I bought 2 of these for my boys. The brakes on them both are junk.They both had leaky inner tubes
The rear wheel stops working intermittently (spin the pedals and the rear wheel doesnt engage) The kickstands are junk they bend at the mount. Front sprocket/crank works loose on both bikes. The pedals fell apart after a few hours pedaling all that is left was the center part that screws into the crank. I bought a standard huffy bike for 50$ cheaper with rear drum brakes/old school brakes and it was a much better bike.
