1.0 out of 5 stars Low quality junk, be warned, December 24, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Sonoma Women's Chainless Drive Evolution Urban Commuter Bicycle (Sports)
I got this bike for my wife for Christmas. Out of the box the rear reflector was broken off. Ok, fair enough, things can go wrong in shipping. I called Amazon and arranged a replacement reflector.

Then I started to assemble the bike. The rear rear was buckled beyond what I'd consider acceptable in a $400 bike. Then the seat post clip SNAPPED IN MY HANDS as I clipped the seat on. These seat post clips are used very often, daily by some, and need to be made of STEEL or something of similar durability. Our one was made of low grade aluminium it seems, some brittle crap anyway; I should not be able to snap a 5 mm thick metal seat retaining band with hand pressure!

Anyway, as a result of our experience here we are sending this back rather than hope that the rest of the bike has been made to better standards. Getting a full refund.

"Then I started to assemble the bike. The rear rear was buckled beyond what I'd consider acceptable..."

What is a "rear rear" ?

I'm predicting he meant rear wheel (that it was out of true). I too wondered what he really meant if he meant rear frame that is not good...
