Despite the negative review, I took the risk and purchased the bike for my son as this was the cheapest aluminum frame 24" mountain bike I could find. The bike arrived quickly and in fine condition. Best of all, the bike was light and performed as good as a much more expensive bike. I did have to fine tune the gears and brakes, but this was expected as it had to be assembled which took about 30 minutes.
I was hesitant about purchasing this bike due to the negative review, but I'm quite happy I took the risk. I see that the bike only has one review, which is probably due to potential buyers veering away by the negative review. This is unfortunate since the negative aspect of the review had nothing to do with the bike itself. I've also had one or two bad shipment experiences in the past. Sooner or later everyone will run into this issue as no shipping company is perfect. If someone takes the time to write a product review, it should be about the product itself and for the benefit of others.
I've decided to leave this review in the hope that it would help those dads out there who are also looking for a nice bike for their sons like I was.
