My wife and I got this bike to help get in shape. I am 6'1" and the bike fits me fine. My knees do not hit the handle bars, which I guess can be a problem for taller people on stationary bikes. My wife is 5'3" and has no problems fitting the bike either. The seat is pretty comfortable. I'm sure there are better ones out there, but for the price it's fine, and it's fairly wide, which helps with support (not a racing bike seat). The bike has several programs which are good too. I'm in pretty good shape already and although this bike has 8+ levels, I usually keep it around a level 3 or 4. It's magnetic resistance and gives a good workout! The one thing I wished this bike did would be to self-generate the electricity used for the magnets and the display. Unfortunately, it has to plug into the wall. It has a D cell battery option, but I just keep it plugged in. Well worth the $$ and you know you're getting quality with the name brand (schwinn). Oh, and I really like the pannel that is built into hold a book or tablet while working out. Although we only owned this bike for approximately 6 weeks, it gets a lot of use. My wife and I ride approx. 4 times a week each in 30-45 minute intervals. I hurt my knee a few weeks ago in a softball game, which has kept me off the bike for the last few weeks, but I'll be getting back on again in the next week or so. I'll update this review in the future if the bike suddenly breaks or stops working. So far, so good!
