Hello puzzle lovers, This puzzle took me about 10-12 hours before I lost patience and gave up. After watching the solution, it made me even more confident that i would have not solved it even after hitting the 20 hour mark. Therefore, I’d only recommend this to someone who is either a- experienced with string puzzle solutions or b- prepared to possibly not solve the puzzle. I know it’s a 10 rating, but I still dock it 1 point just because I personally did not find this solvable within a 15-20 hour time frame (which is well above my upper threshold of time) I realize some people might have a higher or lower threshold before quitting, so don’t weigh the 4 star rating too heavily in your purchase consideration. Overall, it was not for me given the impossible nature of it. I really like that it looks cool since it is a bike and honestly, I would have felt like a bad *** if I did solve it (since I knew how difficult it was). Maybe if did solve it id have a better experience, but like I mentioned, I could have spent 20,30,40 hours before solving it which to me is over that upper threshold. Tread lightly and if you do buy it with no string experience, do not be disappointed if your unable to solve it before you reach that threshold too!
