The bike is beautiful, and hopefully a good ride. I especially wanted a simple cruiser - no speeds or hand brakes - and that is what I got. I assembled the bike on the weekend, but the assembly instructions included are woefully inadequate. There is nothing to tell you how to attach the fender brackets to the wheel hubs. The instructions are illustrated with tiny black drawings; you can't tell what part of the illustration the arrows are pointing to. I had to guess on much of the assembly, and when I guessed wrong I had to unscrew and start over. It was very, very frustrating.
After having this product for about a month and have used for 100 miles, I find that it meets the needs for which I purchased it. It was fairly easy to assemble with directions that made sense if followed. A recumbent bike was recommended by a doctor due to back pain as a method to get exercise. I did not want one with a ton of bells and whistles which led me to this particular bike. I find the bike sturdy and comfortable for the 20-30 minutes that I ride each day and am able to monitor my pulse rate to ensure that I reach a aerobic rate. The only drawback to the bike is the 4" of exposed cabling beneath the seat of the bike - they are very attractive to four-legged members of your family. Problem solved by throwing a sheet over the seat area, grabbing the front two corner and tying around to the back of the seat.
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!
