For our budget, this bike was the only decent choice on the market. It only took about 90 minutes for my wife and I to assemble it, despite the instructions not being very clear at some points. Positives: Smooth, pedaling action. LCD Display Panel menu shows time, speed, distance, calories burned, and pulse rate. There's also a pulse recovery display, too. The seat is comfortable. 8 levels of manual resistance. You can personalize the different displays with the up and down buttons. Offers a good workout and seems well-made. Good warranty--
■2 years frame
■1 year mechanical
■6 months electronics
■90 days labor Negatives: LCD Display screen hard to see in low light--it should have been backlit. The 8 levels of manual resistance do actually seem to be 8 separate levels. There's not much difference between 3-6. At level 8, there's not nearly the resistance I would expect at the highest level. The seat is fairly cumbersome to move for persons of different heights since you have to unscrew a bolt from a hole in the base of the bike frame, and slide the frame and seat either forward or backward to the other hole. It would have been a better design to just be able to move the seat. Comes with 2 AA batteries instead of an AC Adaptor. No iPod plugin port or speakers. There is no fan. The bike is very quiet and it's perfect for exercising and watching TV or listening to music. It's a no-frills machine but it feels solidly built so that it will last for years. There was one other brand for a slightly lower price I just read about, but the reviews are mixed. I like this bike alot and am recommending it.
