This has been the best experience with an internet ordered appliance for me in many years. The bike is fabulously engineered and I am quite handy with tools so it slipped together with no difficulty at all. Even a person just moderately skilled with hand tools should have no problem assembling this unit. The bike itself is very comfortable to pedal and I found the seat to be quite large and comfortable. I haven't used the monitors as I gauge my workout by time and the tension setting. It is easy to move around on carpeting and also feels quite steady in use. The piece was nicely and securely packed and arrived without damage.
