I bought this bike for my wife and she loves it. She is short and overweight, so the extra-wide seat is just right for her. The bike is very QUITE which is a plus for people living in apartment; in fact; she was using it at 2am and I never heard her. Some hints for those that do buy this bike(I see the price has already gone up): purchase lock-washers(they can be bought at Wal-mart) and use them with the washers that come with the bike. I found that it makes the seat bracket tighter. I put the bracket with the wheels on the back in order to move the bike easier to & from the wall. When you hook-up the tension cable, rotate the tension knob, which will lift up the cable. Also, I wasted time looking for the two mounting screws for the console: they are the 2 silver screws already on the console, just un-screw them to place the console on the frame. The shipping box was of poor quality & was damaged, so I almost rejected the bike. but I took the chance anyways & everything was fine inside: no missing or damaged parts. My only complaint is that the seat is too far back from the console. I don't know if this bike would be what the young & good-shaped people would like, but for us over-the-hill gang, I think it is great. Also, I had the bike sent to the local Wal-mart as I am to cheap to pay for shipping and it did fit in the back-seat of my wife's car(Ford Tarus). Enjoy.
