This is an update to my previous postings on the bike. My husband regrettably returned this bike. The pedal crank, which came un-greased from the factory and had to be repaired within the first few weeks, continued to make noise, signalling a problem. The seat came off one time when he lifted the bike by the seat. We have been LLB customers for decades and this is an extremely rare dud but it is a real one, and certainly the worst thing that we ever bought from LLB. LLB offered to replace or repair the bike, but for the above-stated reasons, my husband was not interested.

Rated 4 out of 5 by daffodil Poor quality control
Pros: Nice, firm ride; seat is hard but suspension design allows for some give when riding; nice kickstand; attractive looking; perfect for riding on paved roads; good brakes
Cons: I had to have the bike repaired after assembly because there was no grease from the factory on the wheel crank cups, indicated by the fact that a clicking sound could be heard when riding (I consulted with LLB on the issue, and LLB reimbursed me for the expense, which was $20); however, I am still not sure that the bike is operating at 100%, since there are occasional errant sounds; pedals are cheap and I replaced them with Meetlocks bike pedals
Observations: I found the assembly instructions from the manual more confusing than helpful; the assembly was in fact relatively simple, but the manual made it confusing
Conclusion: The bike is a good value, but certainly not the best thing I've bought from LLB.

My husband is very pleased with this bike. He likes the ride, and didn't have a problem putting it together.

Nice bike for the money. Just had a little difficulty assembling the front wheel. Have to unlatch the brake to fit the wheel into the frame, otherwise looks like quality.

Nice and comfortable. Some changes from the prior model are a firmer seat and no suspension shocks up front. Good value
