Overall: If you're looking for an indoor cycle to use at home. This is a great, AFFORDABLE option. It is useful for any individual who is looking to exercise at home privately, avoid long wait times at the gym, get in some cardio during netflix binges, or alleviate some of that gym anxiety. This is the machine for it. It is extremely light weight and mobile. Extended use may make you consider investing in a hardcore elite gym cycle...if you have the space and money eventually in the future. For space efficiency & cost effectiveness - this is really great option.
Observations 1: When putting it together help is beneficial but not necessary. As long as you can read you can put this machine together in under an hour. The toughest part was the pedal. The instructions don't mention the need to use the included wrench tool to attach the pedals using the already connected bolt. Please be aware that the bolt on the pedal part IS NOT intended to come off.
Observation 2: If you're like me and a little on the heavier side (290lbs), you may want to keep the Allen wrench tool handy. As you will want to re-tighten the handle. Leaning on it for extended hours appears to loosen it up after some extended usage. I play it safe and re-tighten after every use now. Not by much. Just a little twist. No stripping the screw.
Observation 3: This is absolutely a cardio workout. Some reviews that I read before purchase mentioned users questioning the effectiveness of the cycle. I can guarantee a real cardio workout. I have the sweat drenched t-shirts to prove it. Keep in mind that extended use at the higher end resistances will increase your heart rate and have you sweating. Be aware that the machine doesn't have a heart rate monitor, but the sweat and pulse increase should be obvious. If you have a fitbit, that helps show the visible increase. I usually go high resistance for a half hour followed by lower resistance for 15 - 20 minutes. Its extremely light weight so move it into my living room to watch netflix - tv - or morning news. The workouts fly by
Observation 4: If you're using it on a carpet expect some swaying. This could be due to the lack of traction and my weight. Its not very much, but noticeable. You can use it on a non-carpet floor OR use non slip rubber pads underneath.
Observation 5 : It's genuinely quiet. If you're not controlling your motion then you can expect to hear some squeaking due to the imbalance of the pedaling. To remedy this I used this without the pedal straps. That way I was forced to control my motion as I pedal instead of allowing momentum to control my motion; A common trap that happens due to the straps and leg motion combo.
The "state of the art" LCD is a pretty cheap plastic display that is ok to read in normal light, but impossible to read if the room is dim or overlit. Still, once the batteries are in place it gives you the basics and is reasonably accurate. While the computer pops off the main tube for changing batteries (not supplied as correctly mentioned in the specs), you want to be careful not to pull out the leads on the very thin wire that snakes down the tube. In fact connecting this wire at both ends of the front tube is probably the most challenging part of the assembly.
The tension setting is almost worthless as 5 of the settings are so loose as to be practically the same. From there it's light, medium, and not quite heavy. 3 is probably all you really need anyway, but given the write-up it seems like they could be a bit more honest.
While it does come with adjustable straps for the pedals, they are so narrow that you may have difficulty fitting your feet in. I ended up removing them, and will look for something I can add on separately.
Actually riding it is reasonably stable, though again the seat will likely need tightening from time to time.
As mentioned elsewhere the bike doesn't fold, and the "transport wheels" are rubber caps at the ends of the crossbars. Since it needs to be stable in use, this isn't a major problem, but again does detract from frequent use if part of the exercise routine ends up being carrying it to and from your exercise location.
