    Your first low-end BMX bike

    I know all of you guys have had low end BMX bikes, What was your first? Mine was a 2001 Mongoose Hoop-D, and the frame on the pig was 9.5lbs.

    Crappy mongoose rebel(70$). Stripped it and painted it primer grey. Removed all brakes and cut the bars and seatpost to lighten it. People thought it was an oldschool bike because it had MAGS

    Hmmm. Never had a crappy BMX. Had the original Mongoose in 1979. Schwinn Scrambler around that time too. Then a Redline Carrera and 600A. Of course, that was more than 20 years ago...

    Sad thing was I got my Hoop-D when I didn't know much. And my dad was trying to get me to buy a $300 GT LMAO Should've listened to my dad.

    Please explain why you would want a fuse after riding a fit S2

    rebels are nice to cruse on cuz of the str8 maggs and **** and they look awsome too just not a trick bike

    my first was this blue huffy that my dad got me at the thrift store it didnt have an alan key goose neck it had a hangover one with the big bolt and when i had finally learned to ramp right before i got my mongoose i went off of a small jump at my local park on the trails in the back landed and my handlebars flew forward and i flew forward offof my bike afterwards it wasnt ride able cuz the front wheel had popped and the handle bars were like they were and **** it was fu*king funny tho

    maybe he meant one of Fits completes...but if you meant like a custom Fit Series 2...please enlighten us on why in the hell you went from a really nice Fit to a not so great low-end Specialized Fuse

    Man, I think my first bike was a Schwinn hand-me-down from my sister with ape-hanger bars and a banana seat.

    My first 'real' bike was a 1986 Mongoose Expert racing bike (bought in 86') which I then tore half the parts off of and converted to freestyle.

    My first true freestyle bike was a 86 or 87 Haro Sport which I got the following year after someone cut the lock and stole my Mongoose. I was really bummed on that, I had paid for everything on the Mongoose myself out of my own pocket.
