This tricycle is quite sturdy, and I'm very happy with the outcome. However - I ordered a RED tricycle and Walmart sent me a pink one. Fortunately (since there was no time for an exchange), it was meant for a little girl. Yes - you do need some tools to put it together, and a bit of strength in your hands to make sure everything is tight. It's a little tricky for just one person to do, as it would be nice to have someone else hold the handlebars and seat in place while another person does the tightening, but it is do-able. Although it is metal, the seat seems to the weakest part to the trike, and the size of the bell is overkill, but a really nice, strong bell! (I never find one that rugged for adult bikes - unless you pay a fortune!)
The instructions leave something to be desired - especially when it come to which direction to face the "locking" nuts. I had to make a phone call to find out that the end with the rubbery-looking white stuff goes to the outside. (I'm not the normal handy"man" at our house.) On the (distorted) photo below, the nut on the left shows the white inner lining, which points away from the bolt when installing. On the right is the flip side, which should point in towards the bolt.
The trike, itself, would earn 5 stars. The color mistake and the iffy instructions brought the rating down a notch. This was a good buy.
