I read most of the reviews prior to purchasing these bikes - and be forewarned there is not enough good size information on who to buy this for. Some other reviews appear to be for a similar 12" model. This review is for the 16" Jeep full suspension bike.
I bought two, one for a 47" tall, 47 pound 6 year old and it is a perfect fit for him with the seat lowered all the way. The second is for an 8 year old, 53" tall 63 pound boy and while he can ride it actually is on the small side for him even with the seat all the way up - I would probably have gone to an 18" had I taken him to a store first.
As far as the value goes, these really are a give-away, delivered and everything for about sixty bucks each. Like others stated the bikes are easy to assemble, sturdy, and draw compliments from others. My boxes was so beat up I was really worried - but the bike was all intact.
Yes, they are heavy. You will need a few metric wrenches, some allen wrenches and a half hour or so for assembly, but a second goes together in maybe 10 minutes. Yes, a kick stand and a rear reflector would have been nice, but this is an incredible value as is. I can hardly buy a used bike for this... and what a great gift for a kid to have one new.
