Comments: When my husband and I picked up the exercise bike at the store, the box fit in the back seat of our Buick. We were not sure if we would need a truck, but it fit perfectly. When we got it home, I began putting it together and found it relatively easy to assemble. The instructions were very precise with no parts missing. The only hard part of the assembly was attaching the display panel. I had a hard time getting the screws in completely. What I ended up doing was putting some of the grease included for another part on the screws to get them to insert all the way. The thing that I like best about this exercise bike is the weight capacity which means very sturdy construction. I did a lot of research online before deciding to purchase this bike. It has an mp3 input, various workout modes, water bottle holder, adjustable seat, and easy to read display. It doesn't have a built-in fan, but I use my pedestal fan so that's not a big deal. This bike has very quiet operation. One other feature is the iFit module input. I checked on iFit.com to see how this would work with my bike, but it seems that iFit is geared more for treadmills and elipticals. Another con is that the speakers are not loud enough. I turned the volume all the way up on my mp3 player and turned the volume all the way up on the bike speakers and the music still was not very loud, but it could be heard. Having the volume all the way up makes the display sounds very loud. Otherwise, I am very pleased with my purchase and think that this bike will be a great tool for my weight loss goals.
