    Mongoose Mischief

    Hi. I am new to this forum. I wanted to know what kind of bike I should get that is for general riding and that will do some jumping and some dirtbiking. I went to mongoose.com and the Mongoose Mischief looks pretty good. What's the best bike I could get that fits the description above for about $200?

    Thank You

    Hmmm...$200 huh, well you could buy some cranks and maybe some handlebars,... its a start If you want anything thats gonna hold up your gonna be looking at more than $200. If your just starting out like you said, buy something cheap as hell from Wal-Mart, bring it home, tighten some crap up and ride, this way if you wreck it, at least youll know if you want to continue with the sport, and what parts you beat on the most when you ride, then save up your bucks and get a decent bike. lookin at at-least over $300 for a decent bike man.

    200$ canadian won't get you anything maybe like flatland freak said

    but you could get a free agent trail devil for around 380$

    a diamondback for around that aswell
    but think your gonna need alot more money unless you gonna by one from wal-mart

    my neighbors boy has a redline romp $179, it's smooth, quiet, durable and nothings broken, bent, or fallen off in a year. i would avoid mongoose, gt, and similiar bikes. i saw a $200 gt at Academy Dept store, it was horrible. $200 will buy an entry level bike with one piece cranks, durable frame, a threadless headset, 48 spoke wheels, durable forks, single brake, basic bike.
