Cruiser should be described a little more thoroughly. If I had been aware of the fact that it is difficult to pedal up a hill; doesn't turn in a 360 degree circle; and may not be appropriate for those children who wish to pedal swiftly I wouldn't have purchased it. I wanted to give my Grandchild a very special Christmas gift, and it was sad to know that he was so disappointed with it.
This is a nice bike and I paid to get it put together correctly at a locally owned bike owned shop. It is highly recommended for anyone with arthritis or neuro-muscular conditions to use this type due to less impact on hands, etc. With this price I could afford to pay to get it assembled.
- How accurate was the sizing? It goes by inches and clearly, this is for youths or small adults.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. It is a good price for this model, haven't used since it's a Christmas gift but appears sturdy.
- Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? Yes
this is one of the most poorly made products on the market. Don't waste your money. Within 30 days I had to replace the rear tires. After that the brakes broke and then withing 6 months and less than 20 times used one of the pedals fell off and now will not stay on. This was well cared for and not handled roughly. It is very cheaply made and the seat is extremely uncomfortable (very hard).
This bike has been the greatest purchase I've made all year! My son, who was born with a disorder that causes some physical disabilities, has found a new freedom riding this bike. Not only that, but he's now the coolest kid in the neighborhood and everyone wants to ride it! I would recommend this bike to virtually any kid from 3 to 300. Even the parents love giving it a ride around the block.
