Bike showed up mostly assembled and was very easy to complete. Not the lightest, but it is steel and rides nice and smooth. Getting it on bonktown for 225 made it a no brainer. One detail where mine differed however was in the handlebars. Although they were drop bars, they are the traditional older style bars and do not have the flat spot that is seen in the pictures (and apparently in everyone else's pics). Not abig deal though.
