First of all the bike was not a light blue or even Robbins egg blue. It is dark blue and silver. It took a long time to get it together because some of the bolts that had to be removed so I could assemble the bike were on so tight it took alot of time to loosen them. Alot of time....I do like riding the bike so for me it was such a good price that I did keep it. But if you are buying it because you like the color you won't be happy.
- How accurate was the sizing? good
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. quality is good
- Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? no some of the bolts that I had to take off to assemble the bike were on way to tight.
I was worried it would be too heavy and my daughter wouldn't be able to keep up with us that have multi-gear bikes. Not a problem for bike rides around town.

Much like the prior reviewer, I too bought this bike for my wife's birthday. She absolutely loves it. It is her pride and joy. The simplicity is perfect as it takes her back to her childhood. The assembly directions are a bit sketchy but if you know how to assemble a bike, it takes no more than 30 minutes as it is mainly assembled already. The quality is top notch for a bike at this price and comparisons to other sites proved Overstock has the best prices out there.
I bought this bike as a birthday present for my wife. It is very similar to her first bike as a child. She loved it and thoroughly enjoyed riding it today on the Northern Virginia Bike trail. It looks great and was easy to assemble. One of the reasons we selected this bicycle was the addition of a front linear brake. This brake did not arrive with the bike and when I called customer service learned that the inclusion of the front brake was an error by Overstock. Nevertheless, the bike was a big hit and my wife is very pleased with it. I certainly recommend it to anyone wishing a classic cruising bike (no gears).
