This simulated rowing exercise bike is perfect for what I need at middle age. It gives me options for low or high intensity, gauges to keep count for time, reps, calories and allows for adjustments to the seat and handle bars to give a custom fit. Great product. I have seen improvements in my physical strength and tone to my arms, shoulders, back and legs. I think my mid region would benefit more by adding some weights under the seat (not included with bike) or by doing more reps in the higher tension position. Nonetheless, it is definitely worth purchasing. Since the handle bars are removable, I remove them after a workout and set it next to the bike to keep out of the way. I was surprised that it doesn't take up much floor space. It's about 2' x 3.5" without the handle bars attached. Now, the only slightly neutral comment I have about this purchase has been that you have to be somewhat mechanically inclined to assemble it. The instructions are clear to me and I like to build things, but if you don't, you may want some help. Also, when assembling it, allow enough work space around you for all the parts. Someone was thinking when they put most of the nuts, bolts, pins, etc. into a clearly marked sheet and celophaned them into place for when needed. That is SO much better than tiny pictures and baggies of parts. I liked purchasing this product online with the ship to a local Wal-Mart for pickup. No shipping costs. The sales clerk assisted me to the car for loading it and I was able to rock and roll it into the house by myself. It weighs approx. 65# including packing materials. Well, that's all I can think of to comment at this time. There are others who have written in too. Take care.
