Mongoose Grudge, 26″ BMX on a Budget
Less than half the price of it’s closest competitors… it handled everything a beginner would throw at it, easily… I recommend this bike for kids getting into BMX, as a first cruiser or for Moms and Dads under 6 foot that want a bike that has the look and feel of a BMX… Perfect for mild tricks and pounding neighborhoods…
