I've only had the bike for a couple of weeks, but so far, so good! I am a woman in my early 40's, and used to work out regularly, but have slacked off completely in the last couple of years. I wanted to start getting back into shape, and already have a treadmill & other equipment, but I wanted something that would be convenient to just jump on while watching tv. This bike is perfect for that! The tension adjustment is quick & easy, and the bike is very quiet. The monitor has several functions - speed, calories burned, distance, etc - but it's not fancy, and I'm not sure how accurate it is. I did try riding standing up, and while you can do it, it doesn't pedal smoothly while standing. It kind of 'catches' as the pedal hits the bottom of each revolution. That's not really a problem for me, but if you're a serious biker, or are trying to simulate a spin class at home, this bike might not be your best option. Another thing that I found to be very convenient is that the handle bars are in a perfect position to hold a laptop or tablet. The bike is very stable and solid, so watching a show on the laptop is very smooth. The one complaint that I have about the bike is that the seat is ROCK HARD! You will definitely want to get a gel cover or something with padding. Overall, I am very happy with my purchase!
