First, my wife and I bought a pair of these bicycles. They were marked down to $59.00 which made the few problems with the bikes seem a much smaller deal.
We called ahead to local wal-marts trying to find one with the bikes in stock, when we found one, they offered to assemble them for us, free, while we drove up.
First things first, if you're buying this bike for exercise, and you're substantially overweight, be advised that the shocks (front, rear, and seat) are probably going to max out eliminating any shock absorption and make the seat even more uncomfortable than normal.
Secondly, the seat, while it is gel padded, is still only marginally more comfortable than sitting on the seat post.
Finally, from the store, the brakes worked fine, however, the tires weren't inflated sufficiently. (25psi instead of the rated 45-65psi) Upon proper inflation, the brakes on both tires had to be adjusted. Unfortunately, this requires a 6mm metric alan wrench, which is NOT included.
Overall, the bikes are nice, and well worth the money, I wholeheartedly agree with the above reviewer that you should get the bike professionally tuned before serious riding.
