So I got my hands on the 2018 Mongoose Title Pro XXL BMX racing bike! at $250 the bike is super affordable but it also means that the quality of the parts are definitely not high end. The frame on the other hand is put together really well. It has great geometry and the welds look on point. This complete bike is made for entry level BMX racing but the frame is good enough to keep and upgrade as you progress.
But the biggest question everyone has for this $250 complete is HOW DOES IT HANDLE? HOW LONG DID THE PARTS LAST? IS IT ANY GOOD? DID THE FORKS BREAK? DID THE BIKE BREAK? IS THIS A WALLY WORLD BIKE?
Well I hope this review answers all these questions and more. I took the Goose to the pump track, dirt jumps and the BMX track to see how the stock parts hold up to some shredding. I also upgraded the bike to see how it would handle with high end parts.
