I'm recovering from massive back surgery, and I needed a bike to help me rehab. I shopped around for a long time, but ultimately nothing came close to the "bang for the buck" that I found at Walmart. Since I don't have much strength, and I couldn't bend forward, I was looking for a very specific type of bike. I needed a comfort/cruiser bike, one that would pedal easily and the handle bars and seat would work so that I could ride the bike sitting straight up, and one that would pedal easily.
Let me tell you that this bike achieves on all levels! I'm so glad I went with this bike! I got it at my local walmart, so sorry but I can't comment on shipping or assembly. I rode the bike home, which is a long ride, but it felt great. It gets a little tough to pedal along rougher surfaces, or uphill, as it only has one gear, but it's not really an issue, even for a person with very limited strength such as myself. It is easy to pedal and cruises along nice and smooth! I love the style, and in the two weeks I've had this bike I've gotten lots of compliments on it. This is one of the best bikes I've ever had! The rack on the back is very handy, I purchased a big basket for the back and I use it for small trips to the store, and to put any back pack or items I'll need for any trip, anywhere!
To be fair, there is one negative thing about this bike. When I turn to look behind me, since I can't turn my neck all the way to just turn my head to see behind me, I have to turn my body to look behind me. Whenever I do this, the bike seat turns when I turn. I've tightened this up many times, and still the seat turns. I either have to turn the seat back straight while I ride, or get off to turn it straight again. For me, this is merely a minor annoyance and I love this bike. But buyer beware, there is a problem, however big that may be for you.
I highly recommend this bike!
