Mongoose Renegade
I found a Mongoose Renegade for 219.99 on sale with a regular price of 399.99. Is this going to be a decent bike? I have a max of 300.00 to spend and cannot come up with a few hundred more anytime soon. I need to find something within the 300.00 range. I know i'm not going to get a bike as good as if I had a thousand bucks to spend, but I have to do with what I have right now. I may post a few other bikes as well to get opinions. Thanks in advance.

    I'd look for something used or go to a bike shop. Save another $200 and you could buy a Specialized Hardrock w/disc brakes for under $500.00. This will be more bike for you buck and the shop will probably include free maintenance.
