Well, when I received the bike (which was late by a day of the expected 2-day delivery, but oh well), I wanted to see how difficult it could possibly be. Let's just put it this way - some parts were challenging because the instructions are useless, however, with a little common sense, and maybe Google, it's not impossible. Oh, I should mention, I have never installed a bike before. I'm not a mechanic nor do I spend my time building furniture. My day job is in IT networking, but I wanted to prove to my boyfriend that I could be just as handy as he is. Two hours later, and I have a beautiful white bike. I did remove all the ugly stickers and it looks so much better without them. I may purchase more conservative vinyl stickers of my own to decorate the bike later, if I can find the right type.
I should emphasize that this bicycle is under $200 which, in the bike world, is considered an economical bike. It's like the Toyota Corolla of the Toyota lineup or the Ford Focus of the Ford lineup. With that said, it is by far a great value. The quality may not be the best, but overall, it puts together nicely. It has great features and a rack! I love that back rack and can't wait to put it to use.
Sadly, I didn't research the height of this bike and it may be slightly big for me. I'm 5'2" and about 120lbs and can't get a good stance while sitting on the saddle, even when the seat is all the way down. I just stand up and the problem is solved for me, but I should give you short ladies (or guys) a slight warning in case you're more concern about getting a bike that suits your height.
Because of my small frame, lifting this bike up on a bus's bike rack is not easy, but just a minor inconvenience compared to the overall beauty of this bike.
I am 5'2" and at first I was worried the bike was too big. The wheels are about 28" so it does feel on the large side but it fits just fine! I even had to raise the seat and the handle bars to get the right fit for my leg length. If you know how to properly mount and dismount a bike, you will feel fine on this bike if you are on the short side. The 21-speed is great for making it up hills. The overall look is really nice too. For the price of this bike this is a great deal. Some of the gears are a little slow to change but overall I really see nothing wrong with this bike especially for the price! The seat is comfortable enough that when going over bumpy sections of road you don't feel like your butt gets slammed.
The only downer was the way the bike was packaged. There were snack wrappers in the packaging (seriously?!) and the front badge and rear taillight were broken. I ended up just pulling off the front badge because it happens to just be a thick sticker. I actually pulled ALL the decals off, there were tons. Minor packaging components like plastic guards and zip ties were broken, and there were very minor scratches on the paint (you'd have to be looking very closely to notice).
Overall I really love this bike and love that it is under $200! I ride it every day and we live in a hilly area. The rear rack is very useful and love the look. I may change the handle bars to something more curved with a bit of a rise for more comfort, and maybe add a basket up front. Assembly was easy and my boyfriend was able to tune it up for me before my first ride.
