Upon receipt of the bicycle, I set about putting it together. It looked like it should be an easy job because the entire back tire and fenders of the bicycle came almost fully assembled. I just had to do the front wheel, handlebars, and seat. One of the first things I noticed was how unclear the instructions were. Rather than include actual pictures of each step of the assembly process, they just used a black and white drawing. I also noticed how flimsy the individual parts (fenders, support bars, etc.) were. Flimsy to the point I could bend them with my hands quite easily. Despite the difficulties I encountered, i proceeded and I got the bike assembled. That's when the fun started. When my wife rode it for the first time the tires scraped against both the front and rear fenders. No matter how I tried, I was never able to totally eliminate this problem. I made all the adjustments i could, but each time i eliminated one area, another started scraping. I can't believe that Huffy put their name on a piece of junk like this. After my wife drove the bike around the block she said the tires were too soft. The instructions tell you that the tires are just partially blown up and to add air. The instructions on the side of the tire says to inflate from 40 - 65 pounds. To be safe I added just enough air to get the tire gauge to read 40 pounds for each tire. As my wife drove out of the driveway, the rear tire exploded. The inner tube had a blowout. I drove to the nearest bicycle repair store and bought 2 new heavy duty tubes. I had to remove the rear tire, take off the old tire and tube which was pretty simple. Getting the new tube into the tire and inflating was not as easy. I got it done, inflated the tire to 35 pounds, and put the wheel and rear fender back on. My wife headed out for a test run....BAM, another blowout. Something wasn't right. I looked online to see what else could cause it and what i found was that where the spokes are fastened to the wheel rim there are sharp little pieces of metal from the spokes that are contained inside the rim. The solution for this is a thin strip of rubber inside the rim to protect the tube. i looked inside the tire rim and there was no thin strip of rubber. The guy at the bicycle repair shop found something that would work for me and so for the 2nd time i had to remove the rear wheel and tire, replace the tube, and reassemble. All of this consumed one entire afternoon into the night, and the next day an entire morning into the early afternoon. I did this in my garage on 2- 90+ degree days.
So, bottom line. Do not purchase this piece of junk bicycle. In addition to what I've related here, i ran into numerous other problems; openings that were so obstructed it was almost impossible to get screws and / or bolts into them....and when you did get the screw / bolt into the area you were so restricted that your wrench could only make a quarter turn at a time and then have to be readjusted.
I give this poorly conceived, poorly constructed piece of junk 0 Stars. However, when I tried to submit it i got an error message instructing me i had to give at least 1 star.
By the way, My wife and I have purchased from Amazon for many years. So far this year we have purchased 32 different items from Amazon. Other than a glass jar of jalapeno peppers that broke during shipping, we have never had a problem or written a bad review.
First, the cup holder now comes with a phone holder attached. It's not very pretty in my opinion, making the bike look more cheap. The top ivory rim of the cup holder is plastic and the phone holder is attached to the rim. So, you cannot take the phone holder off of the cup holder as the plastics are one same piece. You could take the entire cup holder off if you wanted to. In time I just may do that to improve the look of the bike.
Second, between the two middle bars on the bike, there is a new decorative piece. The piece is plastic and matches the color of the bike with a plastic chrome colored medallion. This entire plastic attachment cannot be taken off of the bike as it has 2 metal pieces running through it to keep it place, which are welded onto the bike. This whole area of the bike doesn't look terrible, however, I was looking for a bike with a clean & classy look, and this really alters the appearance as the bike now seems more cluttered with accessories and too dolled-up for my simple taste. It sounds silly, but I am pretty disappointed that I cannot remove it. Again, it doesn't make the bike look ugly, but it changes the style, and it isn't the style I was going for.
If you look through the photos other reviewers have posted, reviewer "Pm" who posted on June 22, 2017 has a picture of the same bike that I have, and gives a pretty clear shot of the 2 "enhancements" I just mentioned.
So I order it. Three weeks before school starts so I know it will have time to get to my house so I can bring it with me on move in day.
Now here's where it gets interesting. I rode my brand new bike on campus for all of three days when suddenly there was a popping feeling in my right pedal. By the end of the day it fell off and was stripped to the point that it could not be put back on. Now the first two weeks were very difficult and I was helping host events everyday, so I wasn't able to contact the seller here about it until yesterday.
They told me that since it had been more than a month since the bike was purchased there was nothing they could do. THAT. PISSES. ME. OFF. I'm a broke, busy college student. I could hardly afford this bike in the first place but I wanted an easier way to get around. I have to lug heavy books everyday, and now I can't even ride my bike because it doesn't have a pedal! I'm sorry I'm too busy to have a second to write to you jerks! I will not be suggesting people buy from you!
