    Mongoose Fireball

    I'm looking to buy a bike. I haven't ridden a bike since about 10 years ago. that was a BMX bike. I've never owned a mountain bike. I'm looking at a Mongoose Fireball. Anyone have any opinions on it or a similar bike? I'm looking for something bmx style for trail riding and light jumping.

    that is a great bike to get into jumping, if you can swing alittle extra $ i would say jump up to a mongoose ritual, they will be better in the long run, since you are more used to bmx the jumping style will feel good to you
