I was astounded to set this machine up and find that, contrary to most exercise bikes, the motor on this model doesn't provide resistance. Instead, the motor speeds up the pedals making it a breeze to cycle along with the help of modern technology. The motor is quiet, the machine seems sturdy, slips on a smooth floor. I suppose some benefit is derived from moving one's legs around and around but there is no increase in heart rate, no muscle "building" which was why I purchased it.
