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.
