I have nothing bad to say about this bicycle. Seriously guys, you should get it. I really wasn't expecting a whole lot out of it because the price is so reasonable but I was pleasantly surprised.
Highlights of this bike that were not really mentioned in the description-
-Front and rear reflectors
-Handle bars and seat are completely adjustable. I'm 4'11" and I had it adjusted so my feet touch the ground and I can ride sitting straight up.
-Shock absorbers on the seat and front tires.
-6 gears that shift with the click of a button.
-Handlebar grips are squishy and comfortable and adorned with a super cute design.
-The seat is very comfortable and bigger than most bike seats. My bum doesn't hurt after long rides.
I really can't chime in on the set up of the bike since my husband put it together for me. He did mention that most of the larger components of it are already put together. He's quite the handy man though and I'm sure it wouldn't have been very easy for me to put it together myself.
In closing, if you want a great bike at a reasonable price get the Forge Coco.

Great for Smaller, Older woman, and her daughter too
We bought this for my mother for her 69th birthday. She is about 5 feet 1 inch. She LOVES it. She was previously riding a mountain bike, and this Forge rides WAY easier, WAY better, and WAY faster. She rode all summer long, and I couldn't keep up with her on my mountain bike. Easy to pedal, coasts awesome, GREAT.
I actually got this bike for my 85 year old Dad!!!! He has a 26" Men's bike but with age he is shrinking in size !!! Thought a women's bike would be easier for him to get off & on ( at 85 it's a little hard to sling your leg over bars).. Most women's bikes are pink, purple, or baby blue so when I saw this one in coco brown I knew it was the one!!! He loves it!!!I I am happy he keeps on riding!
