I'm 35, and I've ridden BMX on and off for almost 25 years, I can say that after being off one for a couple years, I didn't want to spend a lot, the Mongoose 900 is a great bike. I switched the bearings in the crank to sealed, and put a new seat and taller post, other then that it is a great bike. Quality of workmenship on the frame is beautifull, I've owned bmx bikes costing over a 1,000.00 before, I'm very pleased with my purchase, don't let the low price fool you, you will not be dissappointed with this bike.
My 15 year old rides BMX but needed a sturdy park bike for tricks. This is the bike he requested and we hardly see him! It's everything he needed! It didn't take him long to put it together and he's had no problems with it!
We bought the mode 900 for our 9 year old son, my husband wanted something durable and something he could easily swap parts on as he gets older. My son took it out for a test ride and fell in love with it, he says it rides really smooth, easy to pedal and FAST! My daughter(10 years old) now wants one after she rode it.My husband also rode it(5'11" and 175lbs) and really was impressed by the quality of this bike. It was easy to put together, just make sure you check all the nuts and tighten as needed. For a bike with all chromoly tubing the price can't be beat!
The Mongoose Mode 900 weighs 28.5lbs and has a top tube length of 20.5". The frame, forks and handlebars are 4130 chromolly. Headset is sealed, front/rear hubs and crank are not sealed. Rims are double walled, tires are 2.3". Three piece crank, 25tx9t gearing. I'm in my 30s and weigh 230#, bike works great for me.
For the price, it almost sounds to good to be true. Full 4130 chromoly frame with an integrated headset. One thing im on sure of is how well this bike will actually hold up. When I get this bike in a couple of days ill Post a new review on it and how it fells. I just started riding bmx so I wanna go with something cheaper first to see if im gonna continue riding. Good thing about this bike is the frame is apparently very tough and light which does make a huge difference. I was interested in the mode 540 in chrome but was a little bummed out that it is only a high 10 steel frame. which isnt bad but i really need something durable especially riding the trails. Overall this bike seems amazing. I was going to go with the scan r70 but im sold on this bike. Once again I will write another review after ive putting it together and have putting in a couple hours of riding.
I have owned this bike now for a solid 5 months and am pleased to say that this bike has been phenomenal so far. i am 13 years old and 5 foot, this bike fits great. specific details include, 20.5 inch top tube.the bike also features 20 inch 2.3 wide tires that hold 40 psi. it also has a sealed bearing cassette hub in the back that is pretty loud for a 200$ bike (at least better than any 200$ bmx) and in the front normal non sealed bearing hub by quantum. the bike has a half link chain by kmc if i am not mistaken, people claim the pin snapping off causing the chain to fall appart if you don't insert something to keep it in place, but that has not been the case and i have removed the chain many times. it has a normal non sealed 3 piece bottom bracket with 175 mm reach cranks and plastic pedals (that don't spin very well.) the back and only break is a u style brake, my brakes arn't very good but at least they stop me. now the cons/problems. this bike has a bad headset which lets the handle bars slip front and back when a hard force is exerted on them, for example a bunny hop will move them. the reason is because the inside of the headset is smooth and not slotted like the handle bars. this is a easy 30$ fix of just buying a new one like a eastern headset. next the rim in the back (THE RIM) has a noticeable crease and after using the brakes the lip on the crease gets worse so every time you hit the brake you can feel the brake pad hitting the crease and causing a noise, easy and cheap fix is to get some 400 to 600 grit sand paper and sand off the lip until its smooth, yes this will remove some paint (very slight though) but it will make braking feel alot more nicer and will actually help it in the way of saving your brake pads from excessive wear. and lastly (two birds with one stone) the bottom bracket is not sealed and (for me at least ) it was loose which let it wobble causing there not to be enough resistance with the hub so every time i moved the bike forward the pedals would turn (not supposed to happen with a cassette hub) so i had to take off the left crank and tighten the outer bearing race and the nut that goes over it, then it worked phenomenal. overall this is a great bmx bike for 200$ and with a few mods it can be just as good as a 400$ bmx
The seat is awful my buttbis still bruised after 2 days. Its light quick seems like a very good quality bike. Should have got the black one though.
A solid, starter BMX bike. Well made, lightweight bike that's easy to assemble. Very fast. You get up to speed quickly. A smooth ride. A hit with our 10 year old son.
Beats buying cheaper BMX bikes
I just got this bike because I'm willing to get alot other parts. However the handle bars become loose if the stem isn't really tight but that's not much of a bad problem for me. LOVVEE it
