Well i'll make this short. But i needed a 24inch bike to replace a 'semi' mentioned 24inch (Which really is a 26inch.) bike. My old PowerX Bike was bought same way i always bought most my bikes. Straight off the walmart rack preassembled and all. I had it for over 2years and half it's time it's been out to the elements sitting in my backyard, Still works like a charm. But the reason i went with a new bike was of what's in the photos beside here. I have recently been fitting my bikes with cargo rack and bags. But the 26inch Next bike wasn't cutting it with how close the seat rack was to the rear tire, Giving me 0 ability to use the full rear suspension on it. So i did alot of research and found this mongoose bike at my walmart, Took a few mesurements to confirm it'd give me alot more ride height above the wheels and allow me to use the full suspension. Yup and i'd still beable to touch the ground!. Prefect.
So i grabbed the bike off the rack, took it home through a 3mile ride..... Which one thing i dislike about normal seats/stock seats. Is their semi-paddedness. It was DEATH to sit on this vs my Bell Memory foam seat. But after putting all of most my gear on and making sure everything was tighten and fitted correctly. This bike has been riding smoothly and i can even have full suspension ability with the rear seat post rack and touch the ground. (I'm about 5.5foot tall.). Been riding it since and haven't had any problems. Very well made bike. I just wished most full suspension bikes allowed some screw points for waterbottle or handair pump mounting points. But as much as a person has to. Just gotta work around it i guess.
So for last point for recommending... Yea, Road,Dirt,Mountain,Trails. This is the prefect all around bike. Sides i always like a road bike that can fully dampen out any curve bumps, Vs bumping about as you go up one with a standard non suspension bike.
