It was crazy hard to put together. I'm good at building furniture and stuff, and this was very tough. The magnetic tightener thing was close to impossible. It still seem loose actually. It is kind of creaky when you ride it. I am 5'7" and it really gives very little resistance, and the stride is a bit short for my height. It's okay, for a hundred dollars you really aren't going to get much better. I don't see it lasting for that long though. It's not a super high quality machine, but what can you do.
Besides being compact, the stepper comes almost completely assembled so there is very little to do in the way of putting it together. I am 61 and this is a good, low impact way for me to work out. Since I have tendonitis in my right Achilles tendon, I can use this machine without the usual pain and difficulty associated with most machines. Just put it close to a wall or heavy piece of furniture if your balance is poor, and there you go. The cost at Overstock was extremely reasonable and delivery was very quick. I don't think there is anything negative I can say. I'm extremely happy with my purchase and use it daily.
