I did a lot of research before making my purchase and so far it has been great. I do need to find an air pump specifically designed for these skinny valves, our traditional pump didn't work.
The bike is solid, the front & rear rims are well aligned so all I need was to mount them onto the frame, no tuning needed. One annoying problem: the assembly instruction is in Russian. You can go to Vilano website to download the English version though. Overall, a very good bike.
I have owned this bike for one week so far. First thought, the packaging. It was excellent. All was assembled with the exception of the petals and handle bar. It even came with the tools for assembly. Unfortunately the tool for installing the petals were missing but a simple crescent wrench is all that was needed. This bike is heavy and sturdy and well built. The motor is powerful enough to assist my pedaling up a relatively steep incline at a high clip while in 8th gear and I weigh 155 pounds. The derailleur has a small problem when in first gear. It hits against the motor housing as the wheel spins. I haven't had the need to use first gear so it is not a problem yet. It probably only needs an adjustment. The ride is firm and it maneuvers and handles very well. I should have gone with the shock absorber version because riding over bumps and holes goes straight to your hands. The brakes are excellent. I find myself being very comfortable riding at a fast pace knowing that I can stop quickly and safely. Overall, I am pleased and very happy that I made this purchase. My primary purpose is to ride the 5 miles to work 2-3 times a week on this bicycle.
