Got this for my son. He hasn't ridden it yet, so I am only reviewing the bike as I see it and assembly.
The bike goes together pretty easily. You will need a few tools, though, as it doesn't come with any. The manual is a general assembly manual, so I looked on YouTube.com to find out how to adjust the brakes and derailleurs. The brakes could have been left alone, but I think I needed to adjust the derailleurs. The back as easy; the front was a little more difficult because I am not used to doing derailleurs.
I would suggest taking the brake cable off the front brakes before putting the front wheel on. I think that would make it easier. A look on YouTube will show you how to put it back. It is easy when you know how.
The bike is pretty awesome! Looks quite strong. Looks big. The gearing goes really low, so climbing steep hills should be easy. I haven't ridden a real mountain bike before, so I don't know how they are supposed to feel; but this one seems designed for turning around rocks. That is, it is easy to turn, but it doesn't seem designed to go straight. So, I don't think I would recommend riding with no hands.
