When I decided to get this bike I was looking for a product that would be good bang for my buck. I didn't have much time or room so I wanted to be able to work out more then one area of my body with one piece of equipment. Pros: I liked that it is pretty easy to assemble, easy to ride. Cons: seat is uncomfortable, and somewhat awkard movement when it comes to the arm excersiser. Loud You don't need much to put this baby together, the instructions were lack luster but anyone with half a brain could figure out how to put it together. I like that it was easy to adjust for us taller folks. The seat was a bit weird and I did not feel like I could go for even 10 minutes. The arm workout was lack luster and overall the whole thing was loud. Not something you could do with a sleeping baby in the other room Overall I think that there a pretty machines out there and if you save a little more you can get something that will better fit your lifestyle.
