Not terrible, but definitely not good. After putting together the bike and peddling I encountered the loud noise (random pops/snaps) immediately. It is really loud, but I figured it out pretty quick. The plastic piece under the strap around the wheel is just loose enough to be repeatedly whipped back and snapped against the wheel making that noise. I fixed it by removing the velcro strap, unscrewing the clear plastic piece, and gluing small strips of felt on to the wheel itself, then screwing the piece back into place. This makes the piece more flush and any snapping is deafened by the cloth. MUCH quieter. Pretty stupid that I had to do that to make it not annoyingly loud. Now after using it a few times I find that the bar that holds the handlebars is really flimsy and moves quite a bit. I bought the warranty plan for this because I didn't expect it to last 2 full years, and at this rate, I doubt it will. But, for $100, some glue, felt strips, and a half hour of time this bike would be an ok first bike for a teen or someone who is less than 200lbs. If I could go back, I would spend more to get a quality bike.
