Compared to the other bicycles we saw for the price this one had an aluminum frame so we choose this one.
Inside the box everything fine all parts there and no visible scratches. front wheel, front fender, handlebar, and seat comes unassembled. It took me like 2 hours to assemble everything and around 30 minutes to adjust the brakes, the gears in this one where adjusted. The Kickstand had an incorrect angle so I had to bent it a bit so the bike stays standing.
I took the bike to a bicycle shop so a professional could check the adjusting and the assembly as I have no real experience on bike assembly for $30 they adjust and checked everything. The bicycle feels very light and very fast when riding. The tires even if they are the size of a race bike they are not very thin so very good for any terrain. The rear gears compared to the bike we bought to our daughter, a cheaper cruiser bike,feel much more exact and smooth. This bicycle also has aluminum pedals.
Overall I think this was a good purchase and I would recommend the model I think it might be the best bicycle that you can find for around $500. When we took it to the shop to get checked we compared to other bicycles there and this is definitely a good deal.
My husband is familiar with bikes, and this one was not easy to put together. It needed a lot of tweaking, and the breaks were assembled improperly. At first glance, we thought they were really poor (they still are not great), but they just took a little tweaking to get working properly.
I love the look of the bike after all of my upgrades. It rides greats, and it is very nimble. It is comfortable and light. The aluminum frame and the 700x35C tires make for an excellent ride. I got the cyan for $340, and I am happy with that price. I feel that $500 might be a little high for this bike due to the components and poor quality of most of the accessories.
But the delivery was very prompt.
