Just got this today, within a couple days of ordering it. It was very easy to put together. The mfg thoughtfully puts all the bolts, washers, & other parts on where they should be, rather than loose in a parts box. This is genius. But apparently I'm not, because I spent an hour looking for the saddle stem, and thought it was either missing or that I'd thrown away. Turns out it was already inside the stem, where it should be - I just had to pull it out! Duh. The bike is virtually silent & smooth. I'm 5'6' and the maximum height setting for the seat is just barely right for me, so taller people beware. Otherwise, a great deal.
