Good is relative, but that's around the time Mongoose sold out and started being sold at Walmart.

That is a clean example! Looks like a Walmart version, but still a cool old freestyler !!

In December 2000, with new resources from the Wind Point Partners deal, Pacific Cycle acquired the bicycle division of Brunswick Corporation for $60 million, obtaining control of the Mongoose and Roadmaster brands. This also gave Pacific Cycle access to Wal-Mart, who was the second largest retailer of bikes and to whom Brunswick was the largest supplier.[5] Mongoose had maintained a strong reputation for quality and performance, particularly among younger, BMX enthusiasts. Pacific Cycle brought Mongoose into the mass-merchant channel at Wal-Mart.[1]

Later on in 2004 they sold to dorel
