We purchased this bicycle for our grandson for Christmas. Most of the assembly went smoothly, even though the instructions are quite inadequate; they need to be edited and clarified. Our main problem was the front fork and tire assembly. The tire in no way would mount on the bicycle. The metal tubing of the fork is either manufactured wrong, or the axle and tire are configured wrong. Either way, we could NOT get the tire to mount onto the bike. That being said, I just got off the phone with an Amazon rep. who was amazing! He arranged for a replacement bike to be sent out (at no charge) and it will be here before Christmas. =) He did mention that if this replacement bike has the same problem, then a recall might need to be issued. Will update this review after we have new bike assembled and critiqued. In the meantime,....Merry Christmas! Peace on Earth! Goodwill to all men!

Update: 01/02/2013 - We received the replacement bike and it assembled with no problem whatsoever. We packaged up the first bicycle, affixed the return label and dropped it off at our local UPS store. We're very satisfied with Amazon's help and customer service.

I bought this bike through Amazon for my son's 4th birthday. The bike came shipped in the manufacturer's standard bike box with your usual assembly required; front wheel, seat, pedals, and handlebars. Some mechanical ability is required for assembly, but no more than any other boxed bike you would buy. The design is nice and overall design quality high. There was one quality issue that made the bike unusable - the front fork was welded too narrow to fit the front tire. For that, I would have normally given the bike a rating of 2; however, I contacted customer service and within that same day they shipped out a whole new fork at their expense. It arrived within a week and is the correct size. Yes, the quality issue was an inconvenience, but their customer service more than made up for it and knowing if I have any other issues they are there to help is well worth a 5 rating!

The bike weighs 32 lbs with training wheels. Extremely difficult to pedal and tires my son out way too quickly....

After spending more time than I care to admit searching for a quality bike for our four year old son, I finally ordered a Schwinn Scorch. I literally went to every bike shop in the area, searching, after being disappointed with what I saw. Some had a metal chain guard (which was a plus), but lacked a hand brake (wanted him becoming familiar with a hand brake in addition to a coaster brake). I found it really tough to find the bike I was looking for in a 16 inch frame, regardless of price. His previous bike was a Kinderbike 12 inch balance bike. Great bike, but it was getting too small. Also, it was time for him to try a pedal bike. Purchased this bike because of value, quality, and features.

Pros:
o Excellent value $$$
o This bike is solid solid solid / high quality (except for pedals)
o Assembly was straightforward (didn’t experience the fork problem as some other reviewers did)
o Has rear AND front hand brakes in addition to a coaster brake (I did not come across any other model that offered this in a 16 inch bike).
o Even comes with a pair of front axle foot pegs (not that my 4 year old would ever use them, but they make good bumpers when he lays his bike down)

Cons:
o This bike is heavy. Currently using without training wheels. It may be difficult for a 4 year old to handle at first (but confident my son will handle better as he gets older).
o Pedals are very cheap, very difficult to turn. I ended up ordering a replacement pair Avenir Resin Pedals from Amazon and they make a world of difference. Well worth spending an extra $8.19. With the new pedals, this bike seems much easier for my son to pedal and ride.
o The box was taped up where it had ripped when it arrived -- seemed to have had a rough life.

Just received this bike from Amazon, and had hope against hope that the fork problem had been fixed by Schwinn. But alas, when we went to mount the front tire on the bike the fork is too narrow and we couldn't mount it. I've called Schwinn customer service but they aren't open on Saturday, so we will have to wait until Monday. Other than the obvious HUGE design flaw, the bike seems to be good quality. I also contacted Amazon and they offered to send out a new bike and have it here by my son's birthday in 3 days. Still trying decide what to do........

It arrived promptly via Prime. I'm handyman challenged but this bike was not hard at all to put together! Maybe a few times we did the "hmmm" routine when trying to figure it out, but that didn't last long. Really, it wasn't hard. The brake calipers on front wheel were set a little too narrow to fit the wheel, but a quick adjustment took care of that.
We kept remarking that it is a very cool looking bike when it was finally assembled. Bought it for my five year old. Very happy with purchase

The bike is great and nice looking, good quality, but very heavy and my 4-yr-old has trouble pedaling. He rode other 16-inch bikes that were fine, but he is challenged on this one. It's higher and heavier than others I've seen, so I guess we'll have to wait another year.
