Solid build quality overall, although some of the hardware is a bit lacking. No threadlocker, locking washers or locknuts are supplied so be prepared to have some if you don’t want to lose a bolt. The engine has plenty of power, even a 200lb rider pushing the weight limit of this bike has more than enough power to get up quite steep hills. The seat is large and padded well, definitely one of the better seats you’ll find on a mini bike. The wheels and tires are much larger than your typical bike, and combined with the built in jack shaft-like gear reduction unit, this bike has heaps of ground clearance.
My biggest complaint would be, as many others have stated, lack of top-end speed. The bike is geared down low to keep the engine unstressed and allow insane hill climbing ability. Other than that, its a super solid bike
One thing to note: I had to return the first one I received due to damage from shipping. Amazon just sends these out in the box they come in, which really has minimal to no padding in certain areas. The box is designed with one way up and should be shipped freight, according to my UPS driver. They just flip and roll these boxes any way during shipping, and the bikes are just not wrapped up for that unfortunately.
The Coleman Trail200U (CT200U) is a nostalgic, reliable, affordable off-road trail mini bike that will take an adult back to their childhood. The Coleman mini bike will provide years of fun on the trail for the entire family. It comes with easy pull start operation, 196cc engine, low pressure tires for a soft and stable ride, rugged and proven clutch, jackshaft, and chain drive along with rear drum – handle operated braking system.
They used UPS to ship it to me and BOTH times I received my bike, it had serious shipping damage. The first time it was so bad I had to return it, and had I not needed this for a birthday present when I did I definitely would have returned the second one as well.
I also have a friend who ordered one who had issues with shipping damage with his as well, so these are not isolated issues. Quite frustrating, definitely causes one to lose faith in ordering larger items from Amazon.
