Mongoose and Huffy mountain bike quality?

I've heard complaints (on internet reviews) that ever since Huffy bought out Mongoose, the Mongoose bikes have not been as good quality as before. Is this true?

    Well, I don't know for sure, but I used to assemble bikes at a major chain store, and Did Mongoose, Huffy, Roadmaster, etc. mainly cheaper brands. The main thing I noticed that made them cheap was the crappy gears. Mongoose had a higher end line of mountain bikes that had lighter frames and better gears, and I imagine that Huffy has eliminated the good gears and put some crappy ones on them. But like I said, this is just speculation on my part, an educated guess.

    No it's not true. Mongoose traditionally was always a good brand (back in my day when dirt bike brands like Red Line, PK, Mongoose, Diamond Back were around.) Nothing has changed. Mongoose is still a good brand.
