I bought this bike so I could get in my exercise done at home but not spend a fortune and take up a ton of room. This was a great buy. It shipped really quickly. At 5 months pregnant, I put this together myself in about an hour and half. I bike on it every evening. It takes up minimal space in my condo and it's a great workout. The resistance is actually strenuous and gets the heart rate going and builds up a sweat. The calorie counter is way off, but other than that, it's a great buy.
