I am not really sure what all the negative reviews are about but it did make me skeptical when buying this bike originally.
I normally check photos and reviews when buying online!
huffy is generally a good brand from what I know about bikes anyway...
I have never put together a bike before but it seemed pretty straight forward without the manual, I just don’t care to read a manual.
All in all,
I was able to put the bike together within 1 hours time, again without reading the manual or having prior knowledge about how to assemble a bike!
So, not bad for a first timer and it didn’t fall apart on my ride with it (on/off road)!
When, I first took this bike for a ride immediately started playing with the gears to figure out what level I wanted the gears set at.
For some reason,
the tires that came with the bike seamed really comfy when riding it, compared to others I have ridden recently.
(They wear hard as rocks)
Also, the bike seat was rather uncomfortable but that’s a given with most bikes, I have a way more enjoyable huffy Seat downstairs... so, I’ll just swap them! (No big deal).
I love this bike and it’s easy to adjust to!
The only thing I don’t like about this transaction was that the post office (USPS) refused to deliver it because the packaging was to big and it was superrr frustrating!!!
So, they need to maybe have UPS or somebody else ship the item instead to resolve this issue!
If the shipping issue was fixed, I’d gladly give five stars but I’m rating this overall a solid ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I bought this bike to ride around my neighborhood. My knees hurt sometimes so that I wanted something was easy to peddle and easy for me to climb on the bike. That is why I purchased a bike that is considered a ladies bike. I some trouble with the front brake as it was scrapping my front tire but my neighbor, who rides one of those $1000+ bikes all over the place came over and adjusted it for me. Otherwise I like the bike. The seat is a bit hard on one's butt but that is the way for most bikes so I will have to purchase a more comfortable seat. Otherwise, an excellent buy.
After reading one review that said it took 30 min to assemble the bike, I figured I would have time to do it today. As mentioned, the bike comes partially assembled. While that can be a major plus, it isn't so great when certain things are put together to minimize damage in shipping but aren't in the proper place and the instruction manual doesn't give clear instructions on how to reposition the part. "This Owner's Manual is made for several different bicycles." It isn't always clear which instructions are for the model you are trying to put together. It took me considerably more than 30 minutes to get the bike ready for a test ride (five minutes). When I have the time for a lengthier ride, I'll update the review with comments about performance.
Great bike, took about 20 mins to assemble. Very easy and comes with all the tools needed.
