Very classy looking bike !
The overall look of the bike is great ! Very classy. It came partially assembled, the handle bars, the seat and post, the front tire, fender, and front rack, both pedals, and the headlight and bell need to be put on. There are no instructions or diagrams to follow but completing the assembly was very straight forward and basic. There were a couple of parts missing when I got it all put together, but a phone call to the supplier got them delivered within the week no questions. The chain guard and skirt guard are made of vinyl fabric, kind of cheesy but no big deal, you can order replacements. There are some minor tweaks that need to be made to keep the fenders and guards from rubbing, but nothing major. Upgrading some of the parts like the grips, and front brake assembly will probably make the bike look and operate even better but not necessary, the rear brake works great. I plan to ride as is until its necessary to replace parts, just like on any other bike. The frame and racks are solid, been riding around with my wife sitting on the front rack with no problems, lol she loves it ! The headlight is a battery operated led that has a designated mount. The single gear is good for getting around town and even moderate hills and is very comfortable riding. Bottom line ........ this is a great bike for the price and will probably last a very long time, but it will also probably have a few squeaks and rattles. I love the look of it and the comfort while riding ! Not interested in racing or trail riding and it keeps me active at 64.
I bought this bike since I wanted a "dutch" style bicycle without paying over a $1,000 for the real thing. For the money spent it is great value though anyone who buys a bike, any bike, through mail order should be aware of a few things. Mail order will always be less expensive than buying through a retail bicycle store but that is also partially due to that the bike shop is responsible for the setup. A mail order bike has to be setup by yourself and if you have no mechanical aptitude you may want to reconsider or enlist the help of a friend. On my particular bicycle I had to adjust the headstock and wheel bearings since they were binding as well as correcting typical wheel and fender misalignments. No big deal and really just a matter of common sense. But do expect to have to make some adjustments. It just comes with the territory so to speak.
Poor Quality Bike
I was excited to be able to purchase a "Dutch" bike, having lived in Holland for two years. Upon receiving the bike, and upon assembly, it was obvious that the front forks were horribly bent, thus not allowing the proper alignment of the front wheel. Walmart was very helpful in the return of the defective product. When asked if I would like a replacement, I said, "No Thanks." This is not a Walmart issue, it is a maker issue. I would absolutely not recommend this bike. Research "The Flying Pigeon" bike if you would like a "Dutch-like" bike. Much better and higher quality.
