The Stamina CPS 9190 Indoor Cycle arrived as stated and didn't require a great deal of assembly. Having never used a 'spinner' type stationary bike, it did take me a few times to get the seat/handlebar adjustments to my liking. Still I would prefer the handle bars to go a bit higher than max setting. The ride is smooth and adding resistance is easy. The seat is H A R D! Purchased a cell seat cover to help. I'm satisfied with the purchase.
