We got this bike as a first bike with training wheels for our 4 year old grandson. When his Papa asked him if he were to buy him a bike what kind of bike would it be? His answer: Green! Well, this is a very green bike! We ordered it from Overstock and it came within 4 days - yes it needs some assembly, but I think it took my husband less than 1/2 hour to put it together. Nice sturdy bike for a little boy! We did not install the hand brake for him as we thought that learning to stop only one way would suffice and a front brake can make you go over the handle bars...We kept the hand brake for when he's older and has a better feel for the bike. The look on his face was priceless - he wanted to ride it right away and he did great! I'd recommend buying this bike and always, buying from Overstock as well.
This bike arrived in a box & was a bit tricky to put together, I ended up taking it (and another bike from overstock.com) to a local bike shop for them to put together for me. The instructions on this bike were very very hard to read & some of the brake lines were tricky to put together. The instructions read: "If this is a model that needs an Allen wrench, use it to....." I have an Allen wrench but don't know too much about putting bike brake lines together. In the end, after paying the guys at the local bike shop to put it together, I still feel like I got a great bike for my kid at a fairly good price.
I bought this so that my daughter has somewhere to stash library books, etc when she bikes around town and it will be adequate for that. I do like that it detaches and you can carry it with the attached handle. It was a little difficult to install and just fit between here brakes on the handle bars. I'm sure it wouldn't be an issue if you had a cruiser.
