unreliable bicycle On: 2010-10-19
Bicycle looks very good, hence it`s quality is awful.
1. wheels were curved, so it rubs on brakes each cycle.
2. speed selection gear`s bracing is made from !PLASTIC! - no chance to make precision speed selection.
3. pedals starts to crack inside, it looks like bearing is made from plastic.
4. very heavy bicycle, it weight 2 times more than any bicycle i saw before.
The only reason to rate it 2 starts is that it`s still moving after 4 months of short commutes (2-3 times a week). Hence it`s almost not possible to tune speed selection to make it switch smoothly for even short trip and rubber on brakes is killed by curved wheels, and so on...
And it`s really not easy to assemble this bicycle, you need additional tools and once again it`s hard to tune speed selection gear. (i do it easily for bicycle of my spouse).
buying this bicycle for $100 instead of used brand one for $50 was mistake.
I don't recommend On: 2010-10-17
This bike looks really good but the rear brake did not work and needed to fix.
I was not good at repairing bike and was pretty busy at the time
I spent 100 dollars at the bike shop in order to repair it.
also I got mud flaps and rack for the bike....and I spent 270 dollars for it
At the first time, I found the pedal was really uncomfortable when I rode the bike to super market.
The pedal works but it was not smooth like other ordinary pedaling.
Finally I understood I wasted 270 dollars and I really want to return it.

Good Bike, Bad Tubes On: 2010-09-30
I like the bike, it doesnt come preassembled. Its easy to assemble though. I pumped the air and everything, and then the tube popped..its kind of weird because I go to college and had this for less than 24 hours. The bike looks cool, but the seat is a little hard. The gears work great! Just buy a better tube I guess. After all, you get what you pay for.

This bicycle is sufficient for short commutes and nothing serious. The main problem I had with this bicycle was that they did not include the clamper that clamps your seat onto the bicycle frame. But this wasnt too big a problem since you could easily steal bicycle seats anyway - my bicycle seat was just slightly easier to steal. :P
The bike is rather heavy so I would not recommend this bicycle for hilly riders. The price cannot be beat and my experience with this bicycle was tons more pleasant than the experience I had with a Huffy cruiser which I had to return because the gear was broken. Satisfied. Pacific > Huffy in my experience for cheap bicycles.
