    Cute bike. Two things you should know, though–paint and assembly, September 7, 2013

    My daughter-in-law asked for this for her birthday and I was glad to get it for her. It arrived in a really large box, so I was surprised to see that it is NOT completely assembled! I’m quite handy, but after struggling with it and reading instructions that were clearly meant for professional bike shops (things involving torque and ppsi), I took it in. Building a bookcase is one thing, but when you’re talking about being road-worthy, that’s something else entirely! I’ve since picked it up and the guys assure me that “it’s a good little bike” and it will be safe to ride. It only cost $30, but you should factor that in to the cost. Or else buy it at a store already assembled.
    During my failed assembly attempt, I managed to put a couple of small nicks on the frame. (Bike shops have these handy-dandy poles that they attach the bikes to, which is WAY easier than trying to hold it upside down in your family room…) I e-mailed Huffy to get some touch-up paint and they were astonished that anyone would even ASK for such a thing! Seriously? No one has ever needed to touch up paint on a bicycle?! I got several small bottles of paint from a craft store and found a nearly perfect match with Martha Stewart “Beach Glass”. It is suitable for metal, indoor/outdoor and I tested it underneath the frame where it wouldn’t show—bingo! I tried applying it with a sponge brush, but the stipple effect was wrong, so I went to a small brush and that gave me the smooth texture. When it dried, I literally couldn’t tell where the damage had been.
    So—1. either take it to a bike shop for assembly or make sure you have the necessary experience or buy it at a retail store
    2. get a bottle of touch up paint (in this case, “Beach Glass”) for emergencies, because Huffy doesn’t carry it

    This bike is adorable! It def creaks and makes a little bit of noise, but it IS a Huffy. I bought this bike because it was aesthetically everything I was looking for. I pretty much stalked Huffy to find out when and who was getting this product first. It’s really cute. (husband assembled it, didn’t take long at all)
