Company HISTORY~
For almost 40 years, Mongoose has been in the dirt, on the trails and off the ramps. Founded in 1974 in a Southern California garage, Mongoose has always been an aggressive brand with products that push the limits of what a rider can do. From the biggest hits on the mountain or in the park to the urban jungle, Mongoose is an authentic brand that produces durable products built for real riders. From the first products - to our current crop of BMX, Mountain and pavement bikes, Mongoose is synonymous with bikes that perform on the smoothest single track to the biggest drops and riders looking for trails that never end and keep the party going.

Mongoose is a brand name of bicycles originally designed, manufactured, and sold by BMX Products, Inc. It produces several models of BMX, mountain bikes, and street bicycles, making ample use of light weight alloys and magnesium. The company is based in Madison, Wisconsin.

Skip Hess started BMX Products, Inc. out of his home in Simi Valley, California in September 1974 with his first product being the famous Motomag One wheel. According to Hess, at its largest stage of expansion, BMX Products, Inc. employed about 85 people. In its early years Hess recalled that about 600 frames per day were produced at its Chatsworth, Los Angeles location.
RECO (Racer Engineering Company) was a wholly owned manufacturing division created for insurance purposes to be separate from BMX Products, Inc, even though RECO was always produced in-house. It was headed by Vice President of Manufacturing Hoppy Brooks, in his attempt to market motorcycle frames.
Pre 2001 models were only sold in bicycle shops. Prized as higher quality than post merger mass market big box store models.
Pacific Cycle years
Mongoose since 2001 is part of Dorel Group, that makes Cannondale, GT, Mongoose, Schwinn, Iron Horse and Sugoi. Mongoose merged in 2001 with Pacific Cycle, a subsidiary of Dorel Industries.
The company has expanded to developing a wide range of bikes and performance parts, as well as skateboards, and electric scooters. It is heavily involved in professional bicycle events, and sponsors many riders (such as Eric Rupe) in various competitions, including the X Games and the Dew Action Sports Tour.
Mongoose sells essentially two lines of bicycles. One is a line of discount bikes offered through mass-merchandisers like Walmart, Toys "R" Us and Target. The other featured on their website, are higher-end models sold through specialty bicycle shops.
In 2004, Dorel acquired Pacific Cycle, a company that designs, markets and distributes branded bicycles and other recreational products. In February 2008, Dorel purchased the Cannondale Bicycle Corporation and SUGOI Performance Apparel. In July 2009, Dorel announced their acquisition of Iron Horse Bicycles. In August 2013, Dorel announced their acquisition of Brazil-based Bicycletas Caloi S/A.
The Dorel Sports segment comprises three operating divisions:
• The Cycling Sports Group division which deals specifically with the independent bicycle dealers' channel
• The Pacific Cycle division which deals with the mass merchant and sporting goods channel
• The Apparel Footwear Group which incorporates the SUGOI, Cannondale, GT, Schwinn, IronHorse and Mongoose apparel lines. Dorel markets its sports products under the brand names of Cannondale, Schwinn, GT, Mongoose, Caloi, IronHorse, SUGOI, Pacific, Dyno, RoadMaster, PowerLite, Fabric, and InSTEP.
