The tube where the handle bars connect was damage prior to the factory assembly and the bike was still packed and shipped. The cross bar is also dented on the left side just aft of the weld point to the fore mentioned tube. The weld at this point is also suspect as the painted over dross fell away during shipping. And the rear reflector was broken during shipping. Customer asembly out of the box was simple; took less than 15 min including tool hunting and clean-up. Really did not expect the quality issues. I wonder what else will show up when the birthday arrives 6/10?
The box had a large hole and the seat was missing the tool to hold it in place. I paid 25 to have someone replace the piece and will never order a bike on line again . Second issueis Its not easy to put together and needed a few tools I don't normally use like a clamp bolt for the handle bars.
I bought this bike for my grandson's 7th birthday March 2013. It looked really great, but as far as performance and durability its horrible. The pedals that screw on fell off. And the handle bar isn't put together right. All in all the quality is low, now it sits in the basement.
My son is turing 4 and was ready for his first big boy bike. He was already riding his 12" bike without training wheels. This is just a little too tall for him. He can barely reach the ground with the seat in its lowest position. He is about 42" tall. The bike is sturdy and good quality. Didn't take my husband too long to put together. The only reason I gave 4 out of 5 stars is because the description said for ages 4-8. We really should have gone with a 14" bike. And not sure why, but the bikes don't come with kickstands anymore and I wish they did.
The set came in pretty quickly but there was a pedal missing. It cannot be assembled and used. Also the cover above the chain was broken, maybe from the shipping. I was excited at first finding the bike but quite disappointed after recieving it.

Review 7 for NEXT 16" Rocket Boys' Bike, Red
By zibbit ,
I recently purchased this bike for my son. First of all, the bike arrived with some damage, but for the price we paid it wasn't worth returning. Secondly, some of the plastic pieces meant to protect it during shipping were almost impossible to remove. Finally, after assembling the bike, we have found that the training wheels do not allow the rear wheel to touch the ground very well - when he pedals, the back wheel just barely grazes the ground and the bike doesn't move. Unfortunately, it looks like we will be returning the bike to the store after all!
missing instructions but overall is perfect. price - product is a perfect reasonable deal!. I have only found hard to mount the pedals because of the wrench too large to fit between the pedal handle and the pedal. but it went well at the end. :) Again put better instructions, I'm not new but someone could not find easy to do it.
Purchased this as a birthday gift. Arrived on time. However, upon trying to put it together it was missing nuts and the bolts supplied was bent and used. I had to go to local bike shop to acquire missing parts. Found it easier to replace parts than to mail package back.

Review 10 for NEXT 16" Rocket Boys' Bike, Red
frame is not long enough!
By rocco33 ,

My son's feet barely touch the ground while sitting. His knees touch the handlebars while peddling. Bad design! The frame needs to be a couple inches longer. My son is cramped on this bike.
I bought this for my son for his birthday. He loves it! It is very well built and very nice looking. My only complaint is no kick stand and the chain guard is a little thin. Over all a very nice bike for the value.
Much faster to get bike delivered at home than to have it sent for pick up at store. It was a birthday gift for my son who turned 4 and he absolutely loves it! Great bike for a beginner, excellent value and very easy to assemble.
The bicycle came very quickly. Easy to assemble and he was riding it within 30 minutes. All I had to do was air up the tires. The only bad thing about the product is whoever packaged it scratched it first and then covered it up with the packing material. Its a kids bike so I'm not going to return it. Otherwise I would definately recommend the bike. After all the kids grow so fast. Why spend twice as much.
My little Nephew just loved it! I bought it on the internet shipped very fast. By brother took it to the local Walmart and they put it together in a flash !!!!! Really happy about the purchase and service!
