This was probably one of the easiest bikes I've ever had the pleasure of assembling, thanks to the clever strategy on the part of Sunny Health to screw all the bolts and screws into their appointed holes, so the customer doesn't have to deal with scattered, loose pieces or the confusion of which size bolt goes in which part. The instructions are also pretty easy to follow, so betwen the screwed-in holes and the clear and concise booklet, this product should take you under an hour to put together. When assembled, the build is pretty solid, like an expensive bike you'd find at a local gym. The monitor is nice and large, making it easy to read. The body is stylish, and the pedaling is smooth and virtually noiseless-- so noiseless, in fact, that my mother was shocked, since she was so used to the very loud and squeaky non-magnetic bikes that I used to own. There are just two minor issues. 1) The seat post wiggles slightly from side to side because the slot it fits into is so much wider than the post itself. This isn't a big deal once you sit on the bike (your weight keeps it stationary), but this is something that could've been done better. 2) The bike seat itself is kind of uncomfortable, but it's nothing that couldn't be fixed with a seat cushion. Besides, discomfort doesn't really set in until after about 40 minutes to an hour's worth of use, which is not that bad considering that there are some seats that are so poorly made, you can hardly sit on them for more than five minutes without being in agony. All in all, a great product that I recommend highly. You can't beat a bike of this quality for the price, and the minor issues are easily remedied.
