Either way looks nice now or will be as nice when ya change the color scheme to black.

I like the red


I LOST MY PHONE Posting and discussing guns on a vintage bmx collectors website is ok. Asking the value of a collectable vintage bmx bikes isn’t.

Re: MONGOOSE OPINOIN (color)

Both look nice ... I like the red with the gold accents.

You may even want to have gold rim strips with this combo, I think it works almost as well and could give you that change without a complete overhaul.

Once you go black you never go back. So, black it is.

Re: MONGOOSE OPINOIN (color)

Black looks badazz. Not a fan of colored tires on race bikes. Unless it's a carpet queen, they make the bike look worn/dirty.  Just my .02.

I can not sit still. I have been tested for A.D.D. and A.D.H.D. and have neither. I don't need coffee, I just need a B.M.X. or surfboard to consistently ride and I'll be happy. smile

Re: MONGOOSE OPINOIN (color)

black looks like an average badass bike, red makes you do a double take, more eye catchy too.

Re: MONGOOSE OPINOIN (color)

The Black is all original if you are going by the pic above...the red set-up does not have the correct seat & stem... tongue

But...I do like the look of a red set-up with black tires...I might have one of those myself... wink
