Carlos Danger - 1 month ago, Verified purchaser
First off, I truly think this bike is a solid 4 star rating. However, as of the of this review, I thought that the overall rating of the bike on Target is unfairly low because 2 of 3 previous reviewers rated 1 star based on assembly issues, so I threw in an extra star to balance it out.
I was looking for a bike to take on casual bike rides around my neighborhood that was on the low end of the price scale, didn't look stupid, and that could deal reasonably well with hills that are all over my town. This 18 speed beauty seemed to deliver on all 3 and it was in stock at my local store!
ONE PROBLEM that I've had is with these two hex bolts that secure the handle bars wiggling loose. First the top one came loose about a week after purchase, with about 20 miles total ride on the bike. I tightened both at that point and it fixed the issue, but 3 weeks and 50 miles later the bottom one was wiggling loose again. Kind of annoying. I'm going to replace both with a slightly smaller bolt secured with a nut on the other side and that should be the end of that. Granted, the bike is rated for about 200 lbs and I'm 190 and have a 36 lb passenger on a seat fastened over my rear tire so I am likely exerting a bit more force on those bars than intended. If you're going to put a pouch on this bike, keep the hex wrench that came with the bike in there in case you have the same problem.
Other wise I like the feel of the suspension, the tires are knobby and perform well on road and various trails, the seat could be more comfortable but for $160, I got exactly what I hoped for out of this and with a couple of cheap bolts this thing will be perfect!
