    Yeah, well... I'm going to purchase a new bike for the the kids 8th birthday today and was looking at the "Mongoose Metric" it's pretty much at Dicks Sporting Goods, Sports Authority and places like that and is $179 bux... anyone have an opinion on this? I was thinking that he and I would start doing some trail riding and neighborhood riding... I've got the highly sought after (but little known about) Lotus "Pro Series" 3000M that I got for $350 at Sears about 15 years ago and the tires still look brand new :cool:...

    Anyway... is the Mongoose a clunker or what? I couldn't see myself pulling the trigger on the "Heep" and $179 seems to be in my price range...

    Cheers!

    Nevermind... I scored the Raleigh that looks identical to the Diamondback Octane 24... a *little* more ($249.00) than the Mongoose but the raleigh looks better and I got it from the local bike shop instead of the huge sporting goods store...

    Cheers!
