The bike has decent specs and should be fine for light duty. Think of it as a starter bike to see if you want something nicer in the future.

Is the bike really 39lbs?

For 270 bucks I canít complain. I have ATVs for my toys I got this as a tool for weight loss and to have something to do after work that. Think of the 39lbs as extra effort for weight loss 😂😂

I think that is shipping weight and the bike is closer to 32lb. You can weigh yours with a bathroom scale (weigh yourself, then weight yourself holding the bike).

The biggest cons I noticed in the specs is that they do not list what the wheels or brakes are.
