Mongoose Subject 2010 BMX . Not sure if this is a good deal or not. However some advice would be greatly appriciated from any owners/BMX users out there.
This is a possible xmas gift for my daughter age 10. She is a bit of a tom-boy and can give all the boys a run for their money on her old bike!!!. I want to get her a good well built BMX and came across this at my local bike shop. The owner advised that it is a great bike and will last. I can get it for £169 (posted above link to show actual bike). I know I can take it back if any issues or if bike needs adjusted etc, so that gives peace of mind -But is it any good???
Now to confuse things I had a look in Halfords and she spotted a BMX X-Rated Furnace at £129.99 and she really loved it. I could not find much info on this bike on-line and am a bit wary of Halfords stuff, and never heard of the X rated brand.
If anyone can put my mind at rest and recommend the Mongoose I am happy to pay the extra £30, but if the X-rated one is better I would really like to know. She will use it for general use and has no plans to Jump off the house roof, or leap across lakes!!! -Just evry day use with her chums.
I know bike threads usually kick off - but a stear it the right direction would be fantastic.
Sorry don't know how to add image -so if some-one would be so kind.
