Solidly built for a mere ***. On a wood floor you do have to rest it against a wall or even just leg of a coffee table to keep it from traveling, but that's to be expected with any of these. It is definitely better as a lower body cycle, as the plastic grips aren't so comfortable in the hand, but still doable. I purchased it for rehab after knee surgery and it has been really helpful and takes up a lot less space than a normal exercise bike. My only real critique is that the rotation isn't perfectly smooth, particularly as you dial up the resistance (the tension knob is a simple screw that goes directly into the rotating rod). But for the price and what I bought it for it is great value and does the job.
I am very satisfied with this device, I'm am preparing myself for surgery for two knee replacements, so I have to build up the muscles in my legs prior to the surgery. I also use it to strengthen my upper torso and arms. I have been utilizing a power wheelchair for several years now and by upper body strength was gone, but not anymore. However during a move I managed to lose two of the Stand Caps and the timer. Need to replace these since they can't be found.
I recently had a total knee replacement surgery and physical therapy sessions after however i needed to continue exercising my knee and thought this would help keep my joints limber and for the most part it has, could be a little sturdier in the framework.
