I purchased this awesome bike to rehabilitate an ankle injury that I obtained during a basketball game. Some luck, huh. It works great. The pre-set programs provide an excellent workout. There are also different difficulty levels that can really kick your butt. The seat is tall and comfortable and gives great support to your back. The seat also has numerous adjustments to accomidate leg lenght. There are blood/pulse pads on handles on the sides of the seat. And, there are handles up by the display screen that are positioned in the same place that a "regular" bicycle's handles would be. The display screen shows calories, miles, and MPH. Oh, and if you need to escape from the burning in your legs, there is a book holder by the display screen, and you can transport yourself into another world. With all of these features I am in the best shape of my life. Lance Armstrong's got nothin on me! Look out Tour de France here I come.
