The bike arrived semi assembled leaving me with the front wheel, seat, handle bar's and pedal's to fit and adjust. Not being a bicycle mechanic I was slightly nervous to attempt it but it was actually straight forward and with the tool's provided, along with a simple printed guide book in the box, it took less than 30 minutes.
After ensuring that everything was fully tightened and adjusted to my liking (also after pumping up the tires) I took it for its first ride.
I noticed immediately that there was an issue with the gear changes and there was a clear rattle, rubbing and a loud clicking noise coming from the front portion of the gear assembly. After researching some videos on the Internet I managed to adjust the front and rear gear assembly to stop the chain from rubbing on the chain cage at the front and make for smoother gear changes at the rear.
Another issue was that the chain would not shift on the cogs at the front. This was due to the cable not being seated in its stopper (technical term) which meant that the cable wasn't recieving enough tension to shift the chain. Easily fixed by properly placing the cable in its correct position.
I also had to adjust the rear brakes to stop them rubbing on the tire rim and making the afore mentioned rubbing noise.
Moral of the story is that although pre-assembled at the rear it doesn't mean that it won't need to be adjusted out of the box. Movement during shipping may have jiggled some bits loose or whatever.
The seat is, well, narrow and not the most confortable in the world. I do recommend an aftermarket gel cover purely for comfort.Read more ›
Once a new wheel was purchased it discovered an issue with the tyres. The issue being that, for a mountain bike, they are ridiculously weak. I only use this bike to ride to and from work on tarmaced smooth pavements and both tires rapidly deflated within a couple of weeks.
The description says the back end is put together. It is but not well, the brake cable needs tightening by pulling it through the mechanism. Sounds like an easy job but it's not and can cause the loss of the back brakes if the cable frays. Which it does rather easily. So a new cable was bought.
The next issue which I'm currently dealing with is the gear sprocket coming loose and the loss of all the ball bearings. Hopefully I can fix it with the purchase of new ball bearings rather then a whole new sprocket which would be rather more expensive.
Bear in mind as mention it's being used to go about 2K a day 5 days a week over flat tarmaced ground and I've had all these issues I'd hate to see how long it would last if it was used off road.
Just don't buy this bike. Save yourself so much hassle.
Contacted the seller who gave me an option of a percentage off for a new wheel, or getting another bike, as they didn't sell bike parts. We opted for a percentage refund and bought a new wheel. This was done very quickly and efficiently, which I was happy with.
However, the brakes are terrible and we are having constant problems with them which we arr having to replace. All in all, a stressful bike to keep fixing, nothing but issues. Not happy at all, as it is used to get to work and back.
I wish I had saved my money and got a better bike.

Nice bike. Bought it for my other half, does look a touch small when he's on it though. He's about 5,11. After a bit of seat adjustment he can ride it fine. Read morePublished 22 months ago by lotts
