Short Version: If you are looking for something to just get moving while sitting, this is a passable product. Wait for it to go on sale, then get it. Otherwise, try a few of the other models that are a few steps above and see if this item is still worth it to you then.
The item came during the time that was quoted, so no mishaps in shipping. All tools were provided for in the simple "putting together" of the device, so nice touch there as well. A rather wonky solution of replacing the battery for the built in timer - as it involves removing it from the entire unit (without disconnecting the cables -- though they were hot glued together) and placing the AAA battery in the back. Be sure to carefully realign the timer cables when placing it back into the unit, otherwise they run the risk of being caught in the "wheel" inside.
Tension adjustment was lacking. If this is for a user with extremely basic needs, it would be adequate, but you may find them quickly graduating to an upgraded product soon.
I will be returning this item to try other similar fitness cycles that cost more, but will hopefully last longer and provide a greater range of difficulty.
