Honestly, I've only assembled the bike so far - my son hasn't ridden the bike (he's getting it for his birthday!). It seems decently solid but I don't have mileage on it to prove that.
A couple of things, first being that I ordered it site-to-store, free shipping. This took over two weeks until the bike was available - so be aware of that, it's not fast.
The box came damaged, with a corner ripped open. It's sheer luck that several screws and nuts that had worked their way loose and were just sort of shaking around the box didn't fall out. The bike's frame also comes wrapped in a fair amount of thin bubble wrap and tape, but that's sort of pointless when you have several pieces of heavy metal with sharp edges floating freely around the box, which is how it's packed. So, despite all the bubble wrap, there are numerous deep scratches in the paint, straight out of the box.
Other than that, it seems like a good basic bike for a little one. I'm not sure how much punishment it could take if your kid is a hard rider but ours is just learning to ride, so we have a couple of years of moderate use ahead. I'm sure it'll do just fine for that purpose. We also went to the cheap end of the scale for that specific purpose, nothing our kids can do at this point could really be a challenge for a bike, so there's really no worry about how well it takes punishment. A cheap bike that they can beat up without worrying is all we were looking for. Once he's more accomplished, maybe when the training wheels come off, we'll see how this bike holds up and possibly consider a higher-quality bike from another brand.
Purchased for my tall 5 year old son, great Christmas gift. After becoming comfortable with his 12" beginners bike (training wheels removed) it was time to step up to a larger frame. He loves it and the frame and mechanics seem to be very well made, I expect this bike to outlast his riding years on this size.
Assembly was easy enough and nothing that I didn't expect. Be very careful when putting the pedals on this (or any other bike for that matter), there is a left and a right pedal, most people miss this step. You will need a very thin wrench to get them properly tightened.
Due to the seasonal purchase, this bike was not in stock and I had it delivered to my home. The only reason for the 5th star not being awarded is that all hardware is not packaged in plastic bags and one nut plus the small hardware for attaching the reflector brackets were missing. I had spares on-hand (metric sizes) so this was not an issue for myself, but most people would be very disappointed if they couldn't complete the assembly.
Overall I would recommend this product and am happy with the purchase.
