Its a bit weak when it comes to setting it up from the top to the bottom and securing the bikes to it, specially if you have a high end bike with any number of gears. I also feared that being in earth quake country, i would come out after having even a small one to find the bikes on top of my convertible, NOT GOOD! So with a little extra work, which was not recommended or even suggested in the paperwork, I anchored the rack to the wall using plumbers strap and the bungeed the bikes to the rack. I feel much safer now. All in all, for $$ bucks it got the bikes off the garage floor. It was worth even the extra work to secure it.
Very unique design with twin top tubes, reminding me of the cargo bicycles used by the stores to make delivery. But this is not for that commercial use. Reasonably well made and of decent quality material, its built to a price. The side skirts and chain guard are PLASTIC, Its ok to use plastic, but these are not the stiff hard plastic, but more like a thicker version of food wrapper. I seriously doubt that it will last long in the sun. The user manual is a thick one, its one of those that is universal type, packed with info for all sort of different models that the manufacturers made. Very generic. The problem is, this bike is not one of those popular type that is listed inside, thus there is zero info on how to assemble it. I was a bike wrench decades ago, so I have no problem putting it together. But that front rack is in lots of pieces and unlike all the racks that I had experience with, its not frame and fork mounted but on the handlebars and the fork. I had to go on line and research this bike form other web sites to locate a frontal photo of the rack so I wont muck it up. Overall, its a fun bike, comfy and easy to ride. Wont win any races and wont carry much either. Fairly light weight construction with modern components that works fine but nothing to boost off. Its is however almost an ideal bike to putt around town and is able to carry two or three bags of grocery, so you don't have to haul them on your back.. Just make sure there is no heavy item inside. I think the racks are good for about 15 pounds, twenty max. For a single speed bikes, there are many that sell for much less, so this is not a great value. But the styling is unique and it does have reasonable utility.
