Mongoose Efx
I'm thinking about purchasing a Mongoose Efx to use as a trail bike or maybe even a play bike. I was wondering if the suspension has enough travel to jump with. Any other information on this bike would be useful. I know it's not quality stuff but I have a tight budget ($130 and below). Any replys would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    Department store bikes will not hold up to any serious riding. It will NOT hold up to jumping.

    Wow, I thought I was on a tight budget. I don't know what you're going to get for $130 and below. I say look at Ebay or something like that.

    You can jump anything if it has wheels... just like if it has nipples, you can milk anything. For that little money, find a frame without suspension... and build it as you can afford to, with finding stuff from ebay.

    As you have opened and said your wish to buy a mongoose EFX bike as per my research and the reviews from best essay service blog what I have said I would like to give you a suggest not to go for mongoose bike rather than that you better go for MTB bike which is wonderful option to you.
