EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is
The Boys' 24-inch Mongoose Alert mountain bike features a bright orange frame, and aluminum mag wheels. It offers a strong and steady ride with a cool look. Features include a steel mountain-style frame with front suspension fork, 21-speed twist shifters with a Shimano rear derailleur, and front and rear linear pull brakes. The features make both shifting, and stopping easy, and smooth. It was designed for rougher terrain like dirt trails, and made for riders between 4 feet 6 inches and 5 feet 6 inches tall. An adjustable seat post allows for easy height adjustments. It also has a kickstand, and front and rear reflector lights. It is a lower priced bike than many mountain bikes on the market, making it a great value for beginner or more advanced riders 9 years old and up. 
Is It Fun?
Kids, teens, and even some adults cab hop on this bike, and hit the trails. It's a cool looking bike with a bright orange frame, and aluminum mag wheels. In addition to having a unique, stylish look, it's also a great value for a mountain bike. It offers a strong, and steady ride, and we found both shifting, and stopping to be easy and smooth. An adjustable seat post allows for easy height adjustments, and we found it simple to use. 
Who It’s For
The Boys' 24-inch Mongoose Alert mountain bike was designed for boys ages 9 and up who are between 4 feet 6 inches and 5 feet 6 inches tall to use on dirt trails and similarly rough terrain. Girls can ride it as well, as can some adults. Our tester was almost 5'8", and was comfortable riding it. Since it is a lower priced bike than many mountain bikes available, it would make a good option for beginner riders who are trying out the sport. 
What To Be Aware Of

The Mongoose Alert mountain has a steel mountain-style frame with front suspension fork, 21-speed twist shifters with a Shimano rear derailleur, front, and rear linear pull brakes, an adjustable seat post, a kickstand, front and rear reflector lights, and aluminum mag wheels. Additional Mongoose mountain bikes are sold separately, and range in style and price.
