My son is 3 1/2 and we purchased this bike for Christmas. He had a hard time pedaling initially but this was the first time riding a bike ever. I love the fact that it has a bell and a cup holder. The big tires give it a great look. All the kids seems to gravitate to my son's bike as well. My son uses the hand break more than the reverse pedal break but I like that there are two options.
I ordered a cruiser but for some reason I received assembly instructions for a mountain bike. Even though I've never put a bike together before, it was fairly easy to assemble. I pedaled all of one time before the chain snapped off. I've owned 4 bicycles in my lifetime but never broken a chain before so I'm thinking this is a manufacturer's defect. One of the screws was stripped but I was able to make it work. The front fender has a couple of minor dents on it that aren't too noticeable once the bike was assembled. The frame and racks appear to be sturdy and the bike did come with a bell which was nice. I'm sure the bike will provide a nice ride once I can get the part I need. I am a little disappointed but am still looking forward to riding it. The bike is beautiful and the color is slightly metallic which I love. I think the next time I purchase a bicycle, I'll go to a bike shop instead of ordering on line though.
This is a great seat. I have a road bike and typically cycle 30 miles+ at a time. My existing seat leaves a little to be desired and feels awful hard by the time the end of the ride comes around. I didnt want to invest in an entire new saddle so thought I would try this. Ive used a gell cover in the past by Bell for spinning bikes at the gym and it worked fine for that purpose. On the road bike the cover does slide around a little from side to side. It isnt a huge deal, but i will probably permanently stitch the thing on to avoid it from moving around. It does help provide some softer comfort, but again by the end of the ride the seat still feels hard, so you can only expect this as a quick and inexpensive fix to do so much. overall i do recomend it for an easy solution.
