I am happy with the build and knowing that the weight and practicality of the bike is good for him.
GM
All the tools necessary are already in the box with excellent instructions for tuning the brakes and gear shifters.

I'd recommend wider knobby tires if you want to use the bike a lot of dirt trails for better traction.

My eight year old had outgrown his 20" mountain bike and was still obviously too small to fit on my wife's very small 26" mountain bike so I got him this bike. We do a lot of biking, usually a couple hours on the weekends and short trips home from school together. I was interested in this bike because I don't think kids this age usually need the suspension you find on mountain bikes, it is alloy which makes it lighter and it has Shimano components which means they'll be pretty good even if it is their bottom of the line stuff.

In terms of assembly there's nothing too hard about it except that you will probably need to make some pretty serious adjustments to the brakes and the derailleurs which can be tricky and the wheels may not be true (straight). I ended up putting most of it together and then having the LBS (local bike shop) fine tune the brakes, the derailleurs and true the wheels for 35 bucks. Even with that extra expense it is a good value, a noticeably better bike than the typical junk you'd get at Walmart for less money. In terms of the toe clearance, as one reviewer was complaining about, it isn't a factor for my kid. The first time he tried to start riding on a hill and he was jerking his front wheel around a lot and it hit his foot. It surprised him, he made a note of it and adjusted accordingly. Hasn't been an issue since.

The seat looks decent for a cheap bike like this but I would recommend the Serfas Youth Bicycle Saddle. That thing made a huge difference for my kid, allowing him to do two and three hour rides (with lots of breaks, please don't call Child Protective Services) without complaint. The tires are narrow road tires made by some Chinese manufacturer I'd never heard of.

Me and my girlfriend want to get more exercise, so we decided to buy a couple of bicycles for evening rides around the neighborhood. I got a men's 26" Insight (which I love) and we wanted a similar bike for her, but she is 4'11" and every 26" bike was too tall. We finally found this 24" Insight at a sporting goods store, and it fit perfectly. It is a little pricey for a 24" bike, but the alloy frame is definitely lighter than steel and it will not rust out within a year. The gear shifts are extremely smooth, the brakes are strong and inspire confidence, and the bike is very quiet overall. The stock seat was too firm, so we got a Selle Royal gel seat which felt "1000 times better". It does not come with a kickstand, but you can get one for less than $10. We may also get a suspension seatpost, but otherwise we are very pleased with our purchase.

The bike was fairly easy to put together although finding the correct tension in the brake cables was hit and miss. As per one of the other reviews, the brakes are very good, maybe too good.

My 9 year old complained of his foot hitting the front tire straight away and in fact the pedal would also touch the tire at times. I read these reviews and found that this was a common problem. He also experienced the same problem of the bike flipping when using the front brake. However it soon became obvious what the problem was...when I received bike it was packed tightly into a box and it turned out that the front fork was flipped around to save space. I guess I should have realized straight away but I didn't which meant for a couple of hours of cursing.

Once I had switched the fork around my son was off like a lightening bolt. He loves it. The gears seem to shift pretty well without any clicking and the bike itself looks very cool.

I would recommend this bike, hopefully you'll not make the same silly mistake that I did.

This isn't a bad bike, but it is a mass assembled one and it shows. I bought this for my 7 year old because he wanted a bike with gears. I didn't have the spare money to buy the $400 bike at the local bike shop that he wanted. I figured there would be compromises but I was pleasantly surprised with the build quality. The bike arrived very quickly and packaged very well. There were no dings or scratches. The assembly instructions could be a little more clear but I do maintenance on my bikes so I was able to fill in the missing information. Then I realized that the assembly book had two sections for single gear and multiple gear bikes and I was looking in the wrong section. Oops. I suggest reading through the assembly guide before starting to put the bike together. After it was assembled my kid took if for a little spin and really liked it. Overall a very nice bike at a decent price. However, two words of caution. The instructions say there is a took kit that comes with the bike, there isn't. Hopefully you will have some tools to put this together. And second are the shifters.

As I stated in the beginning, this is a mass assembled bike. They do a lot of the assembly at the factory and you do the finishing touches. I'm sure they do thousands of bikes so I'm not sure why they would make such a dumb mistake on the shifters but they did. When they put the shifters on they didn't put them on far enough and there was a little overlap with the grips. Both are made of rubber so they don't slide against each other very easily. I was sure Shimano wouldn't make a shifter that was junk so I checked out their site and found the installation instructions for the grip shifters.
