The internet was buzzing with our recent post of the 2018 Mongoose Title Pro XXl! Mongoose has filled a void by making an affordable, entry level, BMX racing complete bike……but with a twist. The frames are actually high end!! So once a rider starts improving and will ultimately be in need of better parts they can do so while continuing to use the frame. Pretty awesome!!

“Here’s what I got going on my bike. This frame is the same frame that will be retailed below $289.99. I rode it and was stoked, I let a couple others give it a spin and all agreed that it’s a good feeling ride. Yeah I know my stem stack is tall but after back surgery you want to pull up as easy as possible (haha). I’m really excited that this bike when sold complete is going to be great for getting new and returning riders on the track. And yes the components on the complete will be low line (chromo bars, Fork, Cranks, exc.) to stay in the price range but the frame is where all the money went. There are a few being ridden now (The Shifty/LRC team And a few sprinkled threw out the Midwest) and no negative feed back yet. I’m really excited and the time could not have come at a better time, my son has been racing strider so going back to the track is now justifiable for me. And ridding Chromoly race bikes for so long, I really was going to give this new aluminum frame a good once over. But it feels great and have not had to really adjust anything since I put it together. I’m still tripping over the weight. I’ve never had a sub 20lb bike in my racing career. So super stoked on that.” ~Dewayne Taylor
We can’t wait to test ride this bike, this is great for BMX racing!!

BIKE OF THE DAY: 2018 Truth Main Event Pro XXL, White
For today’s Bike Of The Day I posted my 2018 Truth BMX “Main Event” Pro XXL!! I wanted to wait until I finished my video review for it but the weather is making the production of the video take longer than expected.
For this build I did a white/black/ polished colorway and it came out amazing looking. The frame’s branding is all done in water transfer and it gives it such a great finish. The White wall Vee Speedsters really give the build that luxurious, exotic look. I can’t wait till the weather gets better so I can hit the trails and tracks with it.
