No clear input on how to calibrate things after you finally figure out how to assemble everything properly.

Ordered through Amazon and delivery was quite prompt. Everything intact and no damage from shipping. However, upon inspection it was clear that the workers at the factory put the bike together ("mostly assembled") poorly. The gears and brakes were installed in reverse from their proper position on the handlebar. The forks were installed backward, leaving the cables very twisted. Of course that can be easily remedied by a customer who is handy with a wrench.

Clearly this is an entry-level mountain bike, which is what you should expect at this price. Some of the components are great; the Kendra tires, the alloy seatpost, the Grip shifters and the front disk brakes. Other components, however, are low-end. I upgraded the stock crankset (also used by the dreadful Mongoose brand) with an affordable Shimano model. The presence of thin and tinny steel chainrings was particularly dissapointing. But some of this shouldn't matter to folks who just want a solid commuter bike or hybrid bike for touring. As another reviewer said, the KDX2 isn't made for bounding from boulder to boulder or trying to leap into steep drops or over wide chasms. But I anticipate it will be fine (probably even very good) for causual riders (pavement, roads, moderate/flat paths.

The aluminum frame is great but a bit high for folks less than 5-foot 9 inches tall. The Kawasaki manual is a bit minimal but clearly illustrated. This bike is a good deal when it is priced significantly below $200. If the cost begins to climb above $200 as an alternative I would recommend seeking out a true MTB at entry-level from one of the superior brands; such as Diamondback or Giant, both of which can be had for $300.

By the way, don't misplace the importance of the Kawasaki name.

Assembly is quite easy. The bike was in fact "mostly assembled". The frame fits moderate to taller riders best. Everything is quite smooth. The front disc brake is worth the extra few ounces if you are heavy and needed the extra stopping power. The most disappointing thing about this bike is its rather heavy weight at 37 pounds. Otherwise, it is a fairly good bike with good looks. Okay if you paid no more than 150 to 200 for it.

This bike is smooth riding and packs great features. Shifting is easier than any other bike I have ridden. Only downside I can think of is the seat is a bit hard, but an upgrade takes care of that.

I bought this bike about two months ago. I'm using it for going to work, school, and grocery shopping. I haven't had any problems with it. But if you are a TRUE MT Biker you might want to pass on this one. And if you want to use it for your daily life like me this is a great bike. And make sure you get it when it's on sale. Don't pay $250 for this.

I think this bike deserves more than a star.

I bought this and the KDX126 bike for me and my wife for Christmas. Both bikes arrived in fine shape and went together with relative ease. These bikes operate exactly as well as my son's $4,000 mountain bike if you are only planning on using it on hiking trails and dirt roads. I took that into account with my rating and did not down rate it because it shouldn't be used for hard core riding. That's just plain stupid to think this bike could do that. It is what it is; a fine bike for recreational riding in and around camping sites, back roads, etc. I down rated it one star because the seats are uncomfortable for women (I don't have a problem with it but my wife does) and for some minor fit and finish; a decal was coming loose, the rear wheel had a burr on it that needed to be filed off, and the instructions are lousy for adjusting and setting up the shifting. It shifts fine, just took me a while to figure out that the instructions weren't exactly like the bike's tuning screws.
If you think you can buy a mountain bike that will survive jumping 10 foot gaps, 5 foot drop-offs, or crashed hard without any real damage for under $200, then you are not being realistic. For under $200 you will have years of riding recreation on trails and roads comfortably.

I ordered this bike and paid about $150 more due to Kawasaki name, but this bike is junk. Inferior quality materials. Front "shocks" are springs only without any shock absorption, and only a couple inches of suspension; when you hit a bump, the springs bottom-out immediately and spring back into your wrists. No "shock" on the rear, only a spring, with same effect. Crankset is cheap, stamped metal, bald spots on tires after only three rides, front "disc" brake is actually manual (not hydraulic), the frame design is too short front-to-rear, making you feel like you're falling over the handlebars.

The bike came mostly assembled, after full assembly I rode it for about a week every day on some average forest trails (rocks, roots, etc.) nothing too hardcore and the bike held up well against abuse. But about all on the same day the bike started to fall apart, front wheel comes loose very easily, front brakes lock regularly. Rear wheel got wobbly for some reason, and worst of all the front fork suspension is stiff and won't absorb any more shock. The chain continues to fall off and the pedals broke almost day 1. This is a walmart quality bike, I didn't get what I thought I was getting. Put in an extra 100 bucks and get something that will last for more than a handful of rides.
