Yes, 5'4" is too short for this frame. This is ideal for 5'10" to 6'3" riders.

answer 5
Yes, it may be. I bought this 22,5 bike thinking it would be small enough. I'm 5'55 exactly and it's one of the tallest bike I've seen. But I can still ride it. When I'm seated, i can put one foot on the ground. But if I try to stand on my two feet, I can't, the bar is too high, so I'm on barely on my toes.

Yes, because I'm 5'10 and this bicycle is a little high for me.

Your overall height is less important than your leg length. Search the Internet for Bike Size Charts and follow the measuring instructions to get your leg length which is what determines the size of bike you need. I am 6' but somewhat short leg and I fit a the smaller 22" frame like the 22.5" Genesis bike. Larger bikes don't give enough clearance.

It's mostly assembled. I required attaching the seat, the front and back reflectors, the front wheel and front wheel quick-release, the handlebar, and the front brake cable to the handlebar. I took me less than an hour to figure it all out with the instructions.

Mostly assembled - there is about an hour of additional work (handlebars, saddle and pedals mostly)

It is partially assembled. You have to put on the front tire, handle bars, seat, reflectors and hook up the front brake.

'Mostly assembled'. I was able to assemble the remaining parts in 15-20 minutes, not counting the tuning. I took it to a bike shop to handle that. Front wheel, handle bars, pedals and seat need to be installed.

Not completely, you have to put the pedals, the seat, the handlebars, front brake, front wheel... Nothing complicated. The rear tire and chain/derailleur is already all set, so most of it is done

If you're 5' 4", then this is way too big. Unfortunately, when it comes to road bikes, you're not going to find very many options in your size at a department store. You'd be better off checking into a bike shop. However, hear me out on this, there are some women's bikes that look really nice that come in a smaller size. Sometimes the word "Women's" is just a label for smaller frame bikes and there's nothing wrong with getting one if it fits you well. It's not like there is anything on the bike that says it's supposed to be for women. (I'm assuming your a guy since this is a "Men's" bike.)

No. You have to assemble a few parts yourself. It will require a few tools which shouldn't cost more than $15-20 at your local hardware store. It'll be about an hour or two of set up but after that you should be alright.

Yes, my friend is 5'7" and thinks that this bike frame is an inch or 2 too high. Even with the seat all the way down, he was able to ride it and deal with it, but wasn't thrilled to constantly jump down or lean to the side during stops. I think its perfect for 5'10 to 6'3". 6'3" and above should get the 25" genesis.

I weigh about 330 lbs and no problems in the two weeks i have owned it. No flat tires of any kind and there were a couple of times i thought for sure I was going to get some snakebites for sure, but not at all. These are stock tires, tubes and rim strips! I did Slime the tubes though. Shifting is very smooth.
