I ordered a cruiser but for some reason I received assembly instructions for a mountain bike. Even though I've never put a bike together before, it was fairly easy to assemble. I pedaled all of one time before the chain snapped off. I've owned 4 bicycles in my lifetime but never broken a chain before so I'm thinking this is a manufacturer's defect. One of the screws was stripped but I was able to make it work. The front fender has a couple of minor dents on it that aren't too noticeable once the bike was assembled. The frame and racks appear to be sturdy and the bike did come with a bell which was nice. I'm sure the bike will provide a nice ride once I can get the part I need. I am a little disappointed but am still looking forward to riding it. The bike is beautiful and the color is slightly metallic which I love. I think the next time I purchase a bicycle, I'll go to a bike shop instead of ordering on line though.
- Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? no
