I bought this bike to rehab from knee surgery. At this price point I was willing to take a chance and buy it sight unseen. It works as advertised and I've incorporated it into my daily exercise routine.
The bike is quiet when in use; I've used wind trainers before that sound like cyclones compared to this bike. I don't have to crank the TV to hear it while pedaling. The tensioner has 8 levels and provides a good spectrum of wheel resistance. The electronics controlling the 6 exercise programs, timer, calories burned, distance traveled, and pulse all work well.
The only minor negatives:
1. The setup instructions were clear but hooking up the tensioner was unnecessarily difficult. Took 20 minutes and a lot of sweat.
2. The stabilizer bars (front and back) are just a tad short, so there is a slight side-to-side movement as you pedal. Nothing serious.
3. As you exercise, the LCD readout cycles through all the stats...would be nice to be able to select what data you monitor.
Overall I'm happy with the purchase, esp at this price, and can recommend it others.
