I very rarely write reviews, but I was so disappointed with this bicycle that I felt that I should warn others. My daughter is 5 ½ years old and she was very excited to get her new bike as she had outgrown the 12” bike. We bought this bike because there were limited choices for 18” bikes (she is just too short for a 20” bike) and she loved the color. When we got the bike home, it was very difficult for my daughter to get this bike started. I checked the front wheel and it did not spin freely. I adjusted the front brake which was rubbing against the wheel. That helped a little but she still found it difficult get going and continuing going. While I watched her, I could see that the back wheel would spin without the bike moving forward. In addition, as she rode I could as hear the chain rubbing against the chain guard. I tied oiling the chain and gears and adjusting the chain guard, but nothing seemed to work. We returned this bike two days later and the really telling part is that my daughter was not upset. To sum it up, the quality of this bicycle is very poor and the ride is not smooth.
