The bike is solid and is definitely a good value. A couple of quick things: (1) The assembly manual can be difficult to understand sometimes and omits some important things. For example, when attaching the seat, it has a very basic diagram showing that you just pop it on the shaft when in fact, you need to tighten some bolts so it doesn't move all over the place. Another issue is that the manual describes parts slightly differently than they are labeled in the otherwise convenient plastic case they come in with a printed piece of cardstock behind them indicating what they are. (2) The electronic interface on the bike can be a little kludgy, especially when programming it the first time (3) The product description on WalMart.com says that it has a "Built in magazine rack" but the Schwinn website phrases it as a "Reading Rack." Either way, I have not been able to locate either unless the small lip on the console itself counts as a "reading rack" (but most definitely is not a "magazine rack" -- too small for that. (4) The production description on WalMart.com says that it has a "Bottle holder within easy reach" but this is NOT correct. According to the Schwinn website, it does not have this feature. It has two screws where one would attach but the bottle holder only comes with the 140, not the 120. Maybe one could buy one and add it in but it definitely does not come with it. (5) Finally, I have been a bit frustrated with the handlebars in two ways: First, the furthest forward you can rotate them is not as far forward and I would prefer. Second, I have been unable to fully secure them such that they don't slip into another position when I follow the instructions in the manual to tip the bike forward using the handlebars in order to roll the bike to another location.
