What I saw was what I got with respect to the picture/product match. Bike was relatively easy to assemble, but front fender attachment screw was missing. Additionally, there are parts left for which there are no instructions as to their use. Emailed site listed in the instructions, got no response. The bike looks great and rides well.
Would have given 5 stars had the directions been better for assembly. Should be very easy if at least a picture had been provided, directions sent were without pictures and instructed how to put bikes together with gears and hand brakes, which this does not have. Overall, once assembled, bike looks awesome!
In regards to what another reviewer terms as "unsafe", the "problem" she describes is known as toe overlap and is very common, especially on bicycles with smaller frames and larger wheels. It's not an unsafe condition and the majority of riders who experience toe overlap never have a problem while riding. The overlap occurs mostly at very low speeds and riders adjust their pedal position accordingly, soon becoming second nature. Also, if the majority of cyclist are pedaling with the arch of their foot in the middle of the pedal as claimed, they are doing it wrong. The proper foot position on a pedal is for the ball of the foot to be positioned over the center of the pedal. This bicycle is no more unsafe than the millions of other bicycles that have toe overlap.
