Seems like good quality, but not a good cardio workout for a taller athletic person. I haven't had it for too long. I'm 6' 2" and it worked my calf muscles, but the pedal diameter was too small for a decent cardio workout. It works better for my wife who is smaller and less athletic. I have an elliptisizer and we both agree it is much better. With the larger equipment, the benefits outweigh the effort and time spent. . This item may be good quality, but does not give the benefits I was hoping for. .
