Fairly quick assembly, under an hour. Not easy for one person, but possible. For moving to another building, must remove four bolts using allen wrench and socket wrench (or adjustable), and slide out the foot rest. And it's heavy to carry. Using it puts a lot of pressure on your upper foot, but it was OK for me. Swings fairly freely beyond 180 degrees, but your arms must be straight down. No problem getting in or off once you understand the feet must slip in (don't make it too loose). To dismount, first lift arms in, then slide down a bit and bend the knees. Takes a slight amount of coordination. Feels great to use once a day for 5 minutes or so. Haven't been doing it in the morning.
