A Mongoose BMX is an ideal purchase for parents of teenage children who are bored of mountain bikes and want to experience the thrill of BMX riding. The fact that Mongoose is an established brand which is widely admired by riders worldwide means that parents can be sure they are purchasing a quality product which their teenager will absolutely love.
But which Mongoose BMX should parents buy?
The Mongoose Expert is a great choice for any teen who is just getting into BMX riding as a simple swap of the tyres will enable it to perform off-road just as well as on the street or in a skate park. The Mongoose expert has a full cro-mo frame (which reduces its weight), a superb three piece crank, high-quality wheels, fine alloy pedals and gyro and axle pegs. The Expert represents outstanding value for money and therefore reassures parents that they don’t have to spend a lot to get their teen up and running in style.
Although it costs the same as the Expert and has a virtually identical set of components, the Mongoose Rogue has a frame geometry that is designed with freestyle riding in mind, thereby making it the ideal option for skate parks and street tricks. The Rogue is the perfect choice for any teen that prefers riding around the urban jungle to flying over off-road tracks.
If money is particularly tight then parents may do well to consider the Mongoose Brawler. The front triangle of the Brawler is made of cro-mo while the back part is made of steel (which reduces the cost). The Brawler has good all-round geometry and really is a great option for parents on a budget.
Last bit of advice for parents – forget all about mountain bikes!
