Mongoose Riders Talk New Hooligan Big BMX Bikes

Mongoose is pumped to join the big wheel BMX category with its Hooligan series. The new bikes come in multiple styles and builds (aluminum available June 2022), and all feature 29" wheels and modern geometry. 

We were lucky to have Mongoose team riders Mykel Larrin and Dewayne Taylor take part in the SoCal photoshoot, so check out their initial impressions of the Hooligans! 

Mykel Larrin

“My first impression of the new Mongoose Hooligan was great. It has a classic style with solid specs making the bike very user friendly. All the little details pay homage to the past and the present.

The Hooligan handled great. It has a thoughtful geometry that makes it easy to maneuver and it lends a smooth ride. Whether it be a small commute to work or just a cruise down to the beach, the Hooligan is sure to be a fun experience.”

“I was super impressed with the look of the Hooligan bike. It had that old school vibe but futuristic at the same time. Looks just like a regular BMX but bigger!

Hooligan was a blast to ride. I got used to it quickly out of the box, besides the wheels being larger, shredding was instantaneous! Super comfy when pedaling from A-to-B and once you turn the pedals the bike just wants to go.”
