Great Value!

We are very pleased with this bike. It is exactly as described. It is not a high-quality, heavy-duty gym type machine, so if that's what you are expecting, you would be disappointed. There are no programs or bells and whistles, it is a very simple bike that is well-made but not impressive. At this price-point, the bike is of high quality. It is a fairly small profile bike, perfect for a bedroom, office, family room, apartment, etc. It is simple to use and sturdy. It is light weight enough for me (female, 5'6" good physical condition, reasonably strong) to life and move on my own, yet it is stable due to design, not weight. Tension settings are adequate, computer tracks speed, distance, calories, heart rate, time. The movement is pretty smooth for a bike at this price point. The seat is large enough and comfortable for up to an hour of use. The pedals are a good size, but the straps are a little tight for orthopedic style shoes or heavy sneakers. The bike is used primarily by my 94 year old grandfather who has had knee and hip replacement surgery. He can get on off the bike on his own safely. We do keep a 4 footed cane nearby for him to lean on as there is no weight bearing structure handle towards the front of the bike for balance. It is simple for him to use, and he's very pleased with the quality of exercise. The cycling exercise is great, non-impact, and his health and quality of life, including mobility and cognitive function have improved greatly in just a few weeks of use, and he's so proud of himself for how far he can go. This is much easier than walking, and is great for joint flexibility and anyone who is rehabbing a joint like a hip or knee. My husband, 6'0 over 200 pounds also uses the bike, on the highest seat setting, and is pleased with the performance.
