At $89 online ($99 purchased in store - with optional free assembly), this bike seemed just too good to be true. I was also a little hesitant after reading of assembly issues that other buyers had encountered. Need not have worried on either point. This bike is as good as it looks in the photos. On close inspection, the welds are maybe a little untidy, and who knows how long the bright-work will stay bright. But at a whisker under a hundred bucks, it's a steal. As for assembly, assuming you can rustle up a couple of metric wrenches, a set of metric allen (hex) wrenches and you follow the assembly instructions, it's not at all difficult and should take around one hour.
The bike rides quietly and smoothly, the fat tires, front/rear springing and the soft, wide saddle giving a very comfortable ride. Gear change is easy with the handlebar-shifter. Handlebar and seat location makes for a fairly upright cycling posture - this is a bike for fun, not for racing.
Only downside would be the lack of fenders. The front forks have a drilled hole that would take a fender bracket but there's no such opportunity at the rear. I doubt that you could fit a rear pannier. Otherwise, a really nice bike, at a bargain price.
