I am recently retired and bought this bike to use as an additional exercise tool. I walk 4 miles a day in my neighborhood, and mostly use this bike when outdoor weather is inclement for walking. The bike is easy to operate; has 10 tension settings; and is very quiet. I am using it more and more to ride while watching TV. The only downside I have found to this bike is that I have it on carpet and am unable to fold the bike up when not in use. It is too hard to glide on the carpet into a folding position. I am 5'6" and with the seat position 1 notch above the lowest setting, I have no trouble reaching the pedals. I am not sure someone under 5'5" would be able to reach the pedals.
