I have just started using this, but I am very pleased. I chose it over the more expensive, more easily stored upright model, because I wanted to insure stability (My balance is poor right now!). I think the recumbent style was a very good choice for me. This is very stable, but does not take up a lot of room. The assembly was very easy, I am proficient with tools, but have some difficulty getting down to the floor and lifting things, this went fine (and you don't have to be very handy, it is an easy assemble- very much a plus that the directions very clearly describe which piece of hardware is which, by size). Unlike others I was fortunate in that my monitor is working just fine. I am very pleased with the magnetic resistance. I am starting out very lightly, and am in extremely poor shape, but I have tried out varying resistance, it is very, very easy and convenient. Also, this bike does not make a sound!!!! Very nice in my case, I live on a small hallway. I have made the mistake of buying used or cheap-cheap exercise equipment in the past, and since they couldn't provide good useage, they didn't get used! I feel the price on this is really great, and the quality as well. Overall, I think this was an excellent purchase for me, and will help me ease back into good health and fitness very nicely. (I suggest parking it in front of the TV & NOT in the bedroom where you will be tempted to "temporarily" drape clothes on it.... I know that downfall from the past!)
