Assembly is not difficult per se, and the bike comes 90% assembled. However, it may be challenging if you are not mechanically inclined or if you're not all that familiar with basic bicycle adjustment. Most importantly--and I can't emphasize this enough--the brakes will need substantial adjustment before it's even safe to spin the wheels. The brake hardware is not of high quality, but works well enough if it's properly installed. Unfortunately, both of the brake assemblies on the bike I received were haphazardly attached so that the disc would not spin freely between the calipers once assembled. You have to loosen two bolts and adjust the position of the caliper assembly, looking at the disc as it passes between the pads to be sure that everything is straight. Then you have to adjust the brake cable tension so that there is just enough space on either side of the disc for it to spin freely, but not so much that the strength of braking is compromised.
This procedure isn't hard, but you do have to understand how the brake works and you don't want to get it wrong. I am familiar with caliper and cantilever brakes but haven't worked with disc brakes on a bicycle before, and it took me a few minutes of fiddling around to understand how the thing is supposed to be adjusted. If I had attempted to ride the bike without carefully adjusting this, I think I would have had so much binding of the disc in the pads that it would have permanently warped the disc, or might have bound up completely, causing the wheel to lock and probably causing a crash.
The rear derailleur (the only derailleur, the front is just a single cog) also needed complete adjustment. This doesn't take long, but you need to search for instructions online.
Also--be sure when you install the front wheel that you don't have the fork turned backwards. You can't really install the wheel backwards on the fork, as the brake pad assembly mounts to the fork. But if you have the whole fork turned around 180 degrees, the force of braking will cause the brake disc to unscrew from the hub. Braking should tend to cinch down the disc, not unscrew it!
It's always worth having a tube of good bicycle grease handy when assembling a bike (I use Park Tool blue grease). I like to put a LITTLE grease on the seatpost and some on the front end as well. When I have time, I'll re-grease the headset/crankset/wheel bearings, because it wouldn't surprise me if these are inadequately greased from the factory.
Do not plan to rely on the included instruction manual. It's a general manual that's obviously sold with many different bicycles and is nearly useless.
OK--now the good. This bike looks very cool and the wide tires are a real attention-getter. It's amazing how well this bike rides on grass. I bought it for my 10-year-old son but I can ride it a little too, and it makes me want a fat bike of my own. It's a completely different experience when compared with attempting to ride a road bike or even a regular mountain bike on grass.
The gearing is low, so this will never be a very fast bike on pavement. But that's not what it's made for anyway, and it does quite well on surfaces regular bikes can't handle. When properly adjusted, it gives a comfortable ride, and is an attractive machine.
Overall, I am pleased. This is a very inexpensive bicycle, and that shows in the carelessness with which it was assembled at the factory and in the budget-level quality of the components. But that doesn't mean it's a bad bike or won't serve your needs well--it just means you need to be a little cautious and to know what you're doing when you put it together. If you're buying this for a kid, make sure you get it set up right before his/her first ride. (Also, for heaven's sake, make him or her wear a helmet, every time--I work in an ER, I know how important this is.)
