At first I was skeptical but seeing the other reviews and took a chance; and I'm glad I did. It took less than 10 minutes to assemble. Especially liked the way different base tubes could be snapped together. What made it even special is the part where these things snap together, they have a rectangular slot instead of a hole - making it very easy to adjust and assemble. I have seen other products where you have to spend 40 to 60 minutes just trying to align all parts and holes together. By the way, I had first ordered a 4 bike gravity bike stand which turned out to be hopeless plus when I had the bikes on it, I was concerned what would happen when my young teen children try taking them off and putting them on. Anyway, this three bike Swagman stand really works out great for my family needs. Please note none of our bikes has disc brakes so cannot comment about whether it work with those or not but I have two mountain bikes and one hybrid, it works great with them.
I have had touring bikes. racing bikes and a mountain bike - this bike is by far, the most fun. better on my back too. Had to get used to the coaster brake but didnt take long. The color is a beautiful mint green.
I received the bike as promised without any problems. Putting the bike together: My husband was able to assemble the bike in about an hour with very little problem. The instructions were not very helpful but since he has assembled bikes in the past it was really easy for him to put this one together as well. It probably wouldn't have taken him an hour but he was trying to get the brakes to not squeak. The ride experience: The seat is comfortable I wish it was a little wider but at least it is not a small seat. The bike rides extremely well and I have been able to ride 1.2 miles without any problem at all and it is a very nice enjoyable ride. My husband and daughter even love the way this bike rides. It has been many years since I have been on a bike and I would definitely purchase this bike again without any hesitation. Happy Riding!
I love the color, it's even nicer in person. the seat is comfortable and it rides well. the supplied bungie cords for the back and the bell and light were nice thoughtful touches as well. Having said all that, I had to have help getting the tires to be centered int the fenders and the fenders are very thin and easy to bend. the front brake was so difficult to get right (it kept rubbing the front tire despite numerous adjustments) that I finally just took it off. So far the coaster brake is mote than adequate. the chain cover is made of vinyl; and very hard to get back on should you need to remove it. This wouldn't be a big deal but the metal cover underneath has not been painted but is bare aluminum. The skirt guards are also vinyl, and no matter what I tried they scrubbed the tire and anything else they passed, so they are sitting on a shelf in the garage. overall with all things considered, I think they could have made the bike a little better for the price point. I find it more than adequate for riding on the neighborhood bike trails and riding up to the store to shop. I get a lot of complements on the color. and I really enjoy the bike. the kick stand works great too.
