What is BMX Mongoose And How to Choose?

When children are first learning to ride bikes, the BMX design is very popular. Although the bikes are often cool, they're not meant to be used outside of the race circuits or skatepark. Cleary Owl is a great bike that can be used to commute to school and around the park. The Owl is a BMX-inspired bicycle that can also be used for family rides around the neighborhood.
