I've owned this bike for over a month now and I'm glad I made the purchase. The bike feels sturdy and well built and using it is a pleasure. It's very compact and fits well in my studio. It's very nearly silent to operate the only sound being a gentle soft ticking as I pedal. The resistance levels change smoothly and are more than sufficient for me. I am an active athletic guy in my 30's and in the summers my bike trips are generally around 20 to 40 milers with the occasional 50 miler or higher. Obviously I don't get to do those every day but with this bike, it's a breeze to hop on it every morning for 30 minutes or so and put 10 miles under my belt. I've yet to use any resistance higher than 6 so it more than meets my needs. I ignore the cheesy electronics like the flakey heart rate monitor or the completely useless mini fan built in to the console. What's important to me is that the important part of the bike is well built and delivers on its promise. I look forward to owning and using this bike for many years to come.
