Ordered online and bike arrived in good condition in undamaged box. Like previous reviewers, while I am mechanically inclined, this being my first bike in 30 years, assembly was a challenge because the manual does not provide specific instructions for this model of bicycle. Raleigh should provide a one or two page assembly guide specific to this bike. They do provide generic online assembly videos but for this model, the videos were useless.
I am 6-0 and weigh 225. Inseam for me is 32". Raleigh says they test the bike for strength, etc. for a 250lb'er. So it may or may not be OK if one weighs more than 250.
I had to raise the seat quite a bit. The height of the handlebars is not adjustable (at least I don't think they are?), consequently, I find myself tilted forward a bit more than optimal.
As a first-time owner of a modern bike, figuring out how to shift with the "trigger" shifters took me a while. And yes, I did read the instructions in the manual and did go online for info.
I will be riding on short trips of 3 miles or less so the bike is OK for me, but if I was a looking to do long hauls, the low handlebars in relation to the raised seat would steer me away from this bike.
