Finished my first workout with the 290C bike, and I was very impressed. Assembly took about an hour (I was going slow), with very little difficulty. It helps to have a second person around for assembly and attachment of the display screen. I really like the 14 workout programs, 7 for aerobic and 7 for performance. Additionally, my favorite feature, is the 8-week weight loss program, you just select your workout week and day, and the computer does the rest. I looked all over the Internet and locally, and I assure you there isn't a better good quality, low-cost bike than this one. It feels very sturdy, but I'll keep an eye open for any wear issues. Very quiet at this point. Previously, I had a recumbent bike that I used for several years. We bought a new house, and the room I use for my office isn't big enough to handle my office equipment and furniture, plus the recumbent. The 290C only has a 32 inch footprint, as opposed to the 72 inch footprint of the recumbent. Walmart had the best price of any retailer, including Amazon (I'm a Prime member). You can't go wrong with this purchase.
