Comments: I have only had this about a week, but I am enjoying the ride and wanted to get this review in before I forgot the details. It was delivered by UPS and had a rough ride, box damage, so I was worried. It turned out fine. Assembly was very straight forward, but I do suggest Nordic change the bolts that hold the bike to the stand bars from round head hex key to regular bolts with a hex head for a wrench instead of round heads. Two were a tight fit and I don't think I will ever get them out now. But the bike is very stable and has a very smooth ride. So glad I got this model instead of a chain. I have not mastered the resistance control yet, but that is probably just me. It would be nice if the monitor and pickup had an optional electric power supply instead of AAA batteries each but it is just battery powered. They seem to work fine. I'll have to see how long the batteries last. The plastic holder for the pickup sensor should have been better, but I got it on. (It wanted to come out from under the screw). The handle bars are great and I like all the adjustability of everything. I am looking forward to miles of riding during the bad weather.
