Freestyle & Race

I did some digging on another site and found that by 1983 Mongoose frames were being built in Taiwan. Distinctive designs and lots of innovations.Still making bikes today, they have seen it all thru the years. All our bikes are cherry picked from the very best BMX specialist brands, and all our bikes are designed specifically for use at the skatepark or on the track. Choosing the correct size BMX bike is very important, bikes that are too large will be cumbersome and hard to manoeuvre and bikes that are too small can feel cramped and hard to keep under control. The Mongoose Hooligan AL 29″ Bike is a lightweight cruiser. The frame and rims are made from a durable lightweight aluminum while utilizing a steel…

I dont own any American bikes, but I love my Taiwanese rides. I have a Taiwanese 2000 Dyno Compe that I just adore. The thing rides so good that my daughter just bought a 1999 off of craigslist.

“Add to cart to see price” and “See price in checkout”. Established in 2022, The Cut BMX is a rider owned and rider operated BMX store located in Barcelona, Spain. Be the first to know about new collections and exclusive offers. Steve Hess built the first Mongoose bikes in his garage, but the brand soon became legendary. Employees in Chatsworth, California, hand-welded most of the vintage Mongoose bikes. The company’s BMX bikes and scooters soon developed a legendary reputation with many of these gently preowned models available on eBay.

There is also an extra gusset above the bottom bracket. The Mongoose Legion L40 Bike is ready for the beginner to intermediate level BMX rider. Features such as a sealed bearing mid bottom bracket and s… I used to own and race on one of his personal aluminum Newman frame Californians, which was also made in Taiwan.

Typically, they are constructed from lightweight materials like aluminium and carbon fibre to keep the weight down and the rider at the front of the pack. These bikes are strong enough for smooth landings on race and pump tracks but will not take the abuse that a freestyle bike would in concrete skateparks. If you’re looking to set fast lap times or begin your competitive career on the track, a race bike is the right choice. If you are already confident on a bike and have some experience in skateparks or performing tricks and jumps then we would recommend choosing a mid-range bike, priced from £400 to £700, with a full Chromoly frame, fork, and bars. This will be lighter and stronger than an entry level model.

The main difference between the two is the way the bike performs when going backwards. For an experienced person that is already capable of performing most tricks and has previously owned BMX bikes then a high-end complete bike, or full custom would be suggested to meet the demands of this rider, these bikes are priced from £700 plus. The Mongoose Legion L60 Bike is a good entry level BMX bike for someone on the slightly taller side.

We’re talking Taiwanese production here, but how much different, really would these scenarios be for a frame made in, let’s say, Mexico ( Kastan and others), or even better,  the US (Bill Bastian / FMF) for example? Would you say that anyone with a major monkey on his back  (let’s just say, for instance a raging Cocaine addiction) would be able to do his very best work over and over consistently? Suffice to say, quality goods can and are produced in ways and places that would surprise us.

Mongoose’s latest line of BMX race bikes, the Title series, have been designed using that same race pedigree. Our mid-range race bikes are the perfect for riders who are beginning their path to competitive racing. Priced between £400 and £800 these are not quite the high-end steeds you see at national level races, but they all feature lightweight aluminium frames and are designed specifically with the racetrack in mind. Race bikes feature 20-inch wheels on all models, but the components and frame are sized dependent on age and height. Youth race bikes start from a Micro size for very young riders and offer a range of sizes through to expert XL.

Hop on the Mongoose MXOne BMX race bike and you’ll be ready to take the track by storm. The MXOne features a durable steel frame with BMX Race geometry and BMX Race bar with Taper leg race fork. The single speed drivetrain keeps riding mongoose dirt bike simple, while the rear linear pull brake provides reliable stopping power. Plus, this race-ready ride comes with a USA BMX track sanctioned number plate. Leave the competition in the dust with the MXOne BMX race bike by Mongoose.
