Strength:

The 1999 Mongoose Menace is a great bike all around. I like the fact that it is long lasting, on top of the features. The bike is lightweight, durable, and fun to ride.

Weakness:

The only weakness that I discovered is that the rims start to bend, but that's going to happen with any stock rim after 9 years of use. Also, I don't like how the bike isn't really an Anniversary Edition bike, it is only proclaimed to be one.

The bottom line is, older Mongooses were great. Now that Huffy makes them, they suck. So, if you are going to get a good bike, go with an older one!

Nothing of the Mongoose brand. However, I do occasionally ride my 2007 We The People.

Strength:

light frame, great speed, awsome breaks, over all good looks.

Weakness:

seat( hurts my ass), spokes get alittle bent out of shape.

it's the best bike i ever bought! i have a green 25th anniver. and it is so fast.
the bike itself is beutiful, it's fast, the breaks are awsome. it had a good price and can take a beating. it's also the lightest bike that i've ever owned. the bike is great for people who race and dirt jump, not good for you people who goto skate parks with it(you'll bent the spokes out of shape, found tht out the hard way)

Cross Country Rider

Strength:

This is a good frame/fork to start on, I just wanted something to screw around on, and it does all right

Weakness:

nylon pedals, grips, plastic barends, rims, 1 piece crank, well 179, what should you expect, THE seat's got to go

Tight bike, not a racer, but It'll get you around. IF you want to race though but have no cash, get it and build on it, it's a nice frame

Strength:

Great value for the money. Decent frame, good geometry. Upgradeable.

Weakness:

Plastic pedals, cheap headset. Wheelset is good for under 80lbs riders. A little heavy.

For someone starting out in BMX racing this is one of the best deals out there. All of the real weak links are easy to upgrade and you can still save a lot compared to other bikes with similar eqipment. This bike would need some serious upgrades to be a reliable dirt/trail bike. The frame is not Cromoly...only one tube is. Keep that in mind on the jumps. As a beginners bike it is a good value.
