Rated 5 out of 5 by Kevin M Great Bike -- Reasonable Price
Bought this bike for my 12 year old. He loves it. The employee at the store was very helpful and tuned up the bike before we left. Very good experience.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Daniel123442 Good bike
This bike is great if you just bike around the block or on light trails but if you are looking for a mountian bike do not but this bike. If you are looking for a mountian bike spend the extra bit of cash to get a good bike, you will be kicking yourself if you buy this for mountian biking it has a pretty bad front suspension and doesn't have disk brakes which can be essential on muddy trails. Overall if you are looking for a leisure bike ita great bike but whatever you do do not purchase this bike for mountian biking

Rated 4 out of 5 by NYC Man Good Choice
Needed to replace a Columbia bike and did a lot of reading about options. I purchased this bike and on the first ride the chain derailed (my fault) and front tire went flat (glass on the streets; but this is NYC). Took the bike to Ridge Hill store to fix the flat and they did a great job. The bottom line is that this is a great bike for the money and I am riding longer and more efficiently than ever before. I added a seat cushion 2 days ago; and at 63 I feel reborn, while pushing the envelope by riding on consecutive days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jungo75 Great value and quality for the money paid
I decided to get this bike after I put three Walmart bikes out of commission. I've had it for five months and I use it for intermediate trail and casual asphalt riding. It is great on both surfaces. I haven't had any problems with the bike and I would recommend it to anybody looking for beginning to intermediate trail riding. The service at Dick's was great as well, Donte made sure my bike was set to hit the surfaces right out of the store. I bought the warranty plan and with all the abuse this bike takes I'd figure it would have been used by now but no, this bike is really strong. No deraileur problems or nothing, still shifts as smooth as it did the first day. Great investment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Aj Better than a Walmart bike
I like the bike but I was shifting it and the chain fell off but at least it is better than a Walmart bike and also it rides really smooth

Rated 5 out of 5 by justadad Great bike, great price
We bought this bike for my 11 yr old son. He's 5' 2" and we had him fit at an upscale bike store. This bike fits him well and is very well made. This model has upgraded components like some bikes $150-$250 more.
Reading other people's reviews were really influential to me. I didn't read any negative comments at all. We've had it 1 month but he loves it and it's a quality bike.
A week later I bought the girls version for my daughter.

Lets see...the chain fell off, tire went flat 3 times, shifter broke, seat broke all within 3 weeks of purchasing the bike.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Rob83 A good purchase
This bike is a great bike. However, it did not come with a kickstand. The kickstand was for sale for less than $10.00 and can be easily installed. The bike is a good quality and easy to ride. The seat could be a little more comfortable.

I don't know the weight limitation for the bike, but it handled well for a 6' 300lb guy. I am very impressed with the Nishiki so far, it handled well off-road and trails. Climbed a 15% grade hill with no problems compared to my Schwinn mtb skipping gears.
