    Yup, and freestyle and racing are different. You would need two different bikes.

    We told you. Mongoose made a bad name for themselves by selling s*** bikes in X-marts. I just hope now that GT was purchased by Pacific Cycles, it won't happen to them.

    its already happening to them, gt's dyno line is all in walmart, and the quality of there biikes has definitely dropped. Ive got an old thumper from about 7 years ago, mint and completly stock. its a sick bike everthing is chromoly, and its build beefy and built very well. dont see half that quality this bike has into there bikes today.

    it just sucks when that happens to companies. i kinda hate to see it happen, but they do bring it upon themselves i guess.

    seriously, stay away from mongoose

    seriously, stay away from mongoose unless they're sponsoring you. I'd got for a Haro or a We The People
