    Mongoose BMX

    What's the difference between bmx mongoose scan R10-R70? I notice that the higher the "R" number, the more expensive it is.

    The 70 is made out of MUCH better parts/frame material. So its worth the difference in cost. But I still wouldn't touch Mongoose, no matter what the specs are.

    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"

    It may be **** now, but back in the day when I was a kid mongoose was up there with all the other top brand name BMX bikes. I guess you're to young to know.
    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    Mongoose, Diamondback, and Hutch used to be near mythical.

    So what do you think a 1983 vintage Hutch Pro Racer is worth?

    BTW - I raced on the original mongoose with motomags, an first generation supergoose, and a first generation pro-class (as well as the Hutch, a custom Cycle Craft ProXL, and a Profile cruiser)
